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.

asedzie (786) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 6, 2015
750 ml bottle - 5.99 at Chicago-Lake in Minneapolis bottled 9/2015, this could probably rest for a year or so. Pour a gorgeous transparent mahogany with beige white head with good retention. A very attractive beer. Nose is very full - rich deeply caramelized grain notes, raisin, nuttiness and a touch of blended scotch smoothed out by a background of oak. A thick creamy palate and flavors not only match the big aroma but actually double down - along with the residual sugars of the deep and nutty caramelized grain, the flavor actually has a level of umami along with a well-integrated and pleasantly warming note of alcohol. Finishes just a bit rough with some of the big and mildy bitter flavors of alcohol lingering too long on the tongue. The biggest pumpkin beer I’ve tried - I’d probably style it as a ’pumpkin barley wine’ if such a thing existed. As such, it is a refreshingly unique American creation.

Cloudy brown thin beige head; aroma is malty; flava is sweet malt with touch of spice and wood; feels medium with decent fizz; finishes tangy mildly bitter

madelfonatree (317) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - NOV 22, 2015
Bottled September 18, 2013 and enjoyed November 22, 2015 in pint glass. Look - I thought I would need to pour it aggressively to get any head but was wrong. Poured a second glass down the side to get slightly less than a finger of tan head. Head that is there does stick around. Clear amber/clay color. A little sediment. Smell - Bourbon. Pumpkin. Cinnamon. Vanilla. Cherry. Taste - Two years did this beer well BUT it is still a pumpkin beer. Cinnamon. Booze. Pumpkin. Feel - It sits much better than fresh pumpkin beers I’ve had. Smooth and creamy. Carbonation doesn’t really translate to the feel. Overall - This bottle was a little over two years old. It is still a pumpkin beer but I like the subdued taste with aging.

Beerly There (26) - Oregon, USA - NOV 17, 2015
Nice touch on a seasonal classic. Not as good as the originator of the style "Buffalo Bill's Brewery's Original pumpkin ale but not not bad. Pretty high ABV, which at 10.31 is not only Halloween trick, it's also a treat ����.

750ml bottle pours a murky orange with a ring of white head. Nose is blended with root veg and brown sugar, spice too, cinnamon, nutmeg. Flavor is spicy, light pepper, root veg, cinnamon. Full bodied finish. Missing some of that barrel.

60minuteman (1312) - West Chester, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 8, 2015
Bottle. Decent aroma of vanilla, nutmeg, pumpkin pie/bread, spice. Huge flavor has some harsh elements of spicy bourbon, malt and hop. And oak. Barrel aged to a fault. There’s too much power to the aging process in this one.
