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.

(Midwest ale train recollected in abstinence) Tap @Jack of the Wood, Asheville 1909/2012. Actually do not remember too much about this, apart from it being on my tab, spicy, savoury, with a musty sweetness and a healthy potency that did not detract from my even more potent Bison burger savoury flavours. Always up for late autumn revisitings, when forced.

Wow, first sip was very boozy, showing the 10% abv. Dark reddish amber, good flavor but mostly spice. Oak flavor is mild, which I like. This one grew on me as I worked through the bottle.

JaBier (5011) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - FEB 25, 2014
Bottle purchased at Ale Wine & Spirits in Powell. Clear copper pour with a huge tan head. Aroma of malt, cinnamon, ginger and oak. Malty flavor with big cinnamon and ginger before a warming finish with slight oak.

Emeister84 (1129) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Heavy aromas of allspice - nutmeg, cinnamon -, notes of alcoholic ginger beer, and subtle pumpkin. Cherry-bronze with a fully lasting puffy off-white head. Off-dry, very vegetative, savory, with notes redolent of a damp forest. Full bodied, smooth, warming but not over the top.

Strong scents of spices especially cinnamon and ginger and malty oakness. Strong light beige head and hazy brown orange body. Tastes of cinnamon minor fruits and some oak shoe notes. Smooth and a little tart.

wlajwl (4061) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - JAN 21, 2014
Aroma is pumpkins, spices, barrel aging/fruit and slight mustiness. The flavor is pumpkins, spices, fruit/berries, very slight heat and a mix of alcohol and tangy in the finish.

Dark red to brownish. Very oaky jack Daniels flavor with caramel notes. Somewhat light carbonation. Pretty enjoyable brew....

A big pumpkin and spice beer. The bourbon notes blend in pretty nicely but the oakiness seems a little out of place.

Sammy (8942) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 5, 2014
A big beer, with a pumpkin finish. Dark coloured malt liquour. Cinammon and umpkin spices. Lacy. Some sourness in the finish, and carbonation still there.

swanmann (629) - Norman, Oklahoma, USA - JAN 5, 2014
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.
