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.

Of the pumpkin beers, Id say ST Pumking still beats this one by a wide margin. That said, this is still solid and the oak aging complements nicely with the spicy beer. You pick up the bourbon/vanilla easily. A sipper.

Smells delicious. I get pumpkin, cinnamon, and some cherries? Cloves and pumpkin spice are all coming through. Some slight bourbon in the after taste.

Poured a dark red clear color with a large creamy head. Arima of pumpkin and cherries. Lots of big yeast notes like a belgian quad. Taste is very flavorful with pumpkin and berries. Nice hop flavors balance it out. Not too syrupy and the alcohol is hidden well.

750 ml corked and caged bottle. Aroma consists of pie spices, lemon, vanilla. Pours hazy amber with a large beige head with excellent retention; leaves decorative lace. Taste is sweet and savory with licorice, spice and oak flavors, light booze. Slightly foamy mouthfeel, medium body. Pretty good, but I was hoping for more with this one.

mcberko (5919) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 1, 2013
750mL bottle, pours a dark amber with a medium beige head. Aroma of pumpkin spices and wood. Flavour brings out oak barrels, pumpkin spices, and a bit of alcohol. Quite a bit more potent than the average pumpkin beer, along with woody notes. Very well-blended, fairly spicy, and oaky. Really good stuff.

Definite wood and vanilla notes in the aroma along with subtle spices. Crystal clear amber orange with a voluminous light tan head. Rich caramel flavor and sweetness followed by a nice alcohol bite and then vegetal pumpkin flavor with spices. The oak aging really kicks in in the aftertaste along with a bourbon-like flavor (not sure if its actually bourbon or the toasted oak with all the alcohol floating around here). Finishes fairly hot with lasting toasted wood and vanilla/caramel tastes. Really nice Imperial pumpkin ale.

Not a whole lot of boozy barrel which is great, not real spicy which is also good. A dark orange lots of effervescence, lightly creamy feel, sustained head. good head retention. medium-full to very full aroma. real balance of maillard, nutmeg, vanilla, booze, fresh pumpkin. a bit hot on the end but otherwise very solid and expertly done.

WanderinCelt87 (155) - Hamburg, New Jersey, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Pours a lovely deep amber brown with a beige head. Has a lovely aroma of malt spice and a hint of caramel from the oak. Tastes a little sweet with the pumpkin and spice but then I get a full malt taste that is almost overpowering. Goes down easy but leaves me with the sweet malt taste.

Lukaduke (1994) - Portland, Maine, USA - OCT 31, 2013
Pours a deep amber color with a three finger fizzy eggshell foam. The nose has a trace of melted plastic, sweet malts, vanilla and a touch of pumpkin. The palate hides the off notes in the nose a bit more... but its still detectable in trace amounts. The beer otherwise is well balanced and a nice blend of boozy bourbon flavors of vanilla, creme brulee, brown sugar and pumpkin. Traces of fig and dates round out the palate and there is some bitterness and a touch of metallic flavor on the finish.

750 mL bottle from Whole Foods Paramus, just a bit over a year old. Drinking to celebrate Halloween, as 2 in the morning is about the last chance Im going to have today. Pours a dark, murky orange-brown color with a medium sized fizzy tan head. Good head retention. Aroma of chocolate, wood, whiskey, pumpkin. The taste is bourbon, wood, green apple, pumpkin, toasted malts, mild spice. Almost reminiscent of a mulled cider in some respects. Medium bodied, low carbonation, a mild bit of tartness, medium bodied.
