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.

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 (2148) - 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.

Drake (8503) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - OCT 30, 2013
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 I’m 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.

Bottle sampled at Kryptonite. From notes. Pumpkin and pumpkin pie spices. vanilla and oak with a hint of bourbon. Boozy, but less than expected. Very very good.

750ml bottle in a tulip. Pours brown/copper with a lacy, beige head. Aroma of light oak, some pumpkin, lightly roasted malts, a little chocolate and spices, some vanilla, and light bitterness. Flavor the same with a good blend of it all. Average to smooth texture. A pretty good pumpkin beer.

alexsdad06 (5370) - Ohio, USA - OCT 25, 2013
750 ml bottle shared with the wife. Pours a clear dark mahogany color with a medium sized off white head. The aroma and flavor have sweet pumpkin with a nice balance of spices, oak, very subtle bourbon notes, vanilla, mildly toasted malts and caramel. Too drinkable for the abv. Solid drinking pumpkin beer.

b3shine (5354) - Indiana, USA - OCT 24, 2013
750 ml bottle to snifter (shared with the Mrs.). Looks good; a mostly transparent deep amberish brown with fluffy light beige head. Smells of pumpkin and spices with a fairly sweet backbone; much like pumpkin pie. Tastes like it smells with an oak presence as well. Pleasant on the palate. A good pumkin beer that is dangerously drinkable!

750, corked and baled. Pours a murky dark rubied amber with a dense and fizzy light tan head. Big boozy nose, fairly sharp, showing cardamom and nutmeg and oak. Creamy body on the light side of medium, fizzy carb. Hot pie spices on the mid palate, lots of biting sharp wood, and then a somewhat boozy finish.
