COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Jacked is brewed with fresh pumpkin and fall spices and has been aging in Oak barrels for 6 months. The oak barrels add subtle nuances of toasted vanilla and bourbon notes. With an ABV of 10.31% (a play on the date of Halloween), Jacked is a big, unique pumpkin ale.

Deep mahogany color, burgundy tones with tan head, moderate retention. Bourbon, vanilla, pumpkin.. The flavor is deep, dark sugar and pumpkin. The spice seems fairly muted, or at least blends well with the high abv. Reminiscent of a dubbel, but with a bit of vegetal tone. Fairly syrupy. Big brew.

12/24/13. 750mL bottle from the Milan Hy Vee. Stereotypical pumpkin beer aroma, lots of spice, nutmeg, cinnamon, etc., with touches of oak and sweetness. Stereotypical flavor as well, slightly sweet, barely a touch of oak, lots of pie spices. Not awful, but just another pumpkin beer.

Bottle shared by drowland at xmas, pours a dark orange kind of brown with an off white head, the aroma was of tons of spice and cinnamon with a little bit of the vanilla from the barrel coming through, the flavor is much of the same with a good kick of spice on the front end and caramel and sweetness in the finish, the spice isnít overpowering through, nice.

Backlog bottle thanks to so many good ratebeerians. The smell is pumpkin, spice, leaves, and ok. The taste is pumpkin, sweet, whiskey, big, and spice. The look is orange to amber in color.

750 ml bottle
A strong entry in the Halloween seasonal department leaves a big mark. This might be the nicest Crooked Line beer I have tried although I have a few more on deck. A heady release is best split with friends or consumed over a long evening thanks to a high gravity.

Aroma / Appearance - The warm hue has the color of melted caramel drizzled under a lush head of ivory. Caramel, honey, cool squash, and a splash of oak brighten the air with the smell of a fall festival or a garden after the morning dew has evaporated.

Flavor / Palate - Spicy pumpkin rolls cling to the tongue after just two sips. Cream cheese and nutmeg follow before it morphs into a warm sweet finish. The barrel aging is evident but does not dominate; this is primarily a squash bomb in liquid form. By the end it becomes sticky. Overall though the strengths outweigh the weaknesses resulting in a very nice seasonal.

Bottle. Poured clear dark orange color with a large off-white frothy head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Solid pumpkin spice aroma. Medium body with a creamy texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy balanced pumpkin spice flavor with a medium spice sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Good seasonal beer.

Got this bottle in a trade last year with Boltz7555, thanks Jason! Bottled on date of 08/24/2012. Dark brown color bordering on mahogany wood color. Very thin head, light lace in the tulip glass. Aroma is mostly barrel oak with traces of pumpkin underneath. Nice light nuances of bourbon and vanilla. Flavor of oak and vanilla upfront with an almost Coke a cola-caramel element. The barrel has totally subdued the pumpkin at this point. Lots of oak notes.The ABV is completely hidden in this right now, it barley displays any alcohol heat after the sip. Extremely light notes of sweet bourbon in the finish. Nice sipper!

Beerenberger (1274) - Fischer, Texas, USA - DEC 6, 2013
A nose of cinimon and allspice with suggestins of oak. A clear dark amber pour that when held to the light takes on a glowing garnet hue. A foamy tan head with modate retention leaves behind spotty lacing. On the tongue, the spices and woodiness dominate, while hints of alcohol appear briefly in the finish. Medium body and crisp carbonation. Somewhat of a slick mouthfeel. Overall, an enjoyable seasonal brew, but I found it disappointing that the PUMPKIN was lost in the mix of spice, oak, and alcohol.

750 ml caged and corked bottle, bottled on 09/18/13. Served in a nonic pint glass, the beer pours a mostly clear reddish/orange color with about an inch tan head. Head retention and lacing are both good. Aroma is nice, the brew smells mostly like pumpkin and pumpkin spices, along with some light vanilla and oak. It tastes like pumpkin spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice), pumpkin, vanilla, oak, and a bit of booze and butterscotch. Itís not an overspiced pumpkin beer, so in this case it helps the brew. Mouthfeel/body is medium, itís chewy and coating with a good amount of carbonation. I think itís a good pumpkin ale, Iíd try it again in the future. $11.99 a bottle.

Big bouteille. Orange brown clear. Bubbles and lacing. Spiced and pumpkin nose. Pumpkin, spice hints of yeast and hops. Pretty good.
