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.

1 year old almost bottle shared the other night. Not too boozy, very much like pumkin pie, far less sweet than otehr examples.

Bottle from Brusin ales aged at least a year - pours a dark clear ruby red with a tan head. Aroma is pumpkin pie, nutmeg, vanilla, malt, booze. Taste is sweet from the pumpkin with a dry sourness in the finish. Nice!

A very nice pumpkin ale. Pours a dark maroon color with a thick tan head. Smells awesome, like spicy pumpkin pie. Taste is smokey, spicy and a little boozy. Sweet finish. Had in the bottle. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Have had a few times. Always remember enjoying this one as well, wishing there was more. Lots of spiced flavors here: nutmeg, cinnamon, vanilla...blending well with a bourbony pumpkin note. Caramel and oak for a lovely finish. Great beer.

THOUGHTS: A very different take on a pumpkin beer. Very elegant. And rare for a pumpkin beer, it’ll 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.

sonnycheeba (3554) - Federal Hill, Baltimore, Maryland, USA - MAR 12, 2013
Bottle. Pours dark, clear amber with average, creamy off-white head; decent retention and lacing. Aroma is pumpkin, vanilla, bourbon, floral hops, plums, cinnamon, and spice. Flavor is sweet malts forward with supporting oak, bourbon, vanilla, brown sugar, pumpkin and other dark fruit esters, and light floral hops; dry, lightly sweet finish. Medium body and low carbonation.
