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.

THOUGHTS: A very different take on a pumpkin beer. Very elegant. And rare for a pumpkin beer, itíll probably age well. Lots of bourbon and wood with just enough pumpkin and spice. Sour flavors also popped up from time to time to make it even more interesting. Hid alcohol fairly well. Bonus point for the Halloween marketing. TECHNICAL: Bottle. Poured a clear, dark amber with an average to large, off-white head that kept a thin sheet and left good lacing. The aroma had moderate caramel; wood; oak; bourbon; and pumpkin pie spices. The initial flavor was moderately sweet, lightly sour and slightly acidic; while the finish was heavily sweet, slightly sour and lightly bitter and acidic with an average duration. There was caramel, fruity pumpkin, slightly sour pumpkin, pumpkin pie spices, bourbon, wood, oak, alcohol, and pumpkin pie. The medium body was fairly creamy, but sticky on the lips and then dry with fizzy carbonation and lightly alcoholic and ever so slightly chalky finish.

Another superb pumpkin ale, but not quite at the level of Southern Tier. More of a traditional barrel-aged ale, but with pumpkin influences. Dark pour, with pumpkin spiced scent. Absolutely solid malty base, with nutmeg, cinnamon and pumpkin notes, with lingering spiciness. Has a nice sweetness, perhaps from the aging? This is a big, bold beer that I quite like. It's a sipping beer for sure, and non-beer geeks may not appreciate the complexity that this one has that is lacking in the nevertheless goodness of Southern Tier's pumpkin ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a bottle. Smells delicious like pumpkin pie and cinnamon. The taste is crisp, slightly bitter, very earthy.

Bottle. Pours a clear dark amber with a moderate light tan head. Nose is quite pumpkiny with a malty backbone. Taste is also malty with caramel flavors subtly in play. Interesting brew, especially given that Iím not a huge pumpkin person.

Donít like pumpkin beer...pumpkin beer thatís oaked? eh, not so bad. This is a BIG beer, itís sweet, but the oak helps to balance it and the pumpkin and spice isnít too strong.

Bottle. Pours a clear amber with a light brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a light spice note with some brown sugar, pumpkin and a bit of vanilla from the barrel. Flavor starts with light spice and has a bit of barrel which is joined by a nice pumpkin finish.

One of the best pumpkin beers. Taste of pumpkin and brown sugar. Spices come through nicely. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Might be the last pumpkin beer of the season, and what a way to finish. Pumpkin brew at its finest, seriously. Rich color, sweet aroma and strong gourdy flavor that gets you jacked up for more. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice deep copper color with off white sudsy head. Light boozey pumpkiny-woody aroma. Full bodied pumpkin flavors, spiced with woody notes and a touch of booze in the finish. Really a great pumpkin beer.
