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.

This pours a dark amber brown color with a foamy beige head. The aroma is fairly bold with hints of pumpkin and spice. The taste is heavy and bold. The barrel aging really adds depth and complexity. The oak flavors really shine thru in the taste. Definitely worth a try.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2014 Pretty great pumpkin beer, lots of good flavors. You can tell it?s a + 10% beer but it?s still very drinkable. Really enjoy the oak flavors. I?m drinking the Fall 2014 release.

jimhilt (2403) - Bow, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 30, 2014
Pours a four finger off-white head that fades slowly some lace. Deep amber color. Medium carbonation and medium bodied. Nutmeg, clove and cinnamon nose and flavor is pumpkin pie on steroids, oak is noticeable, high ABV is not. Nice imperial pumpkin. Pricey at $13.99 for a 750ml bottle from Julio’s Liquors Westborough, Ma.

kidobutai (360) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Poured from a bottle. No head but a nice orange reminds me of fall. Sweet fruity aroma, vanilla notes, not enough spiciness; terrific creaminess and very smooth going down.

Luvystypotables (655) - Virginia Beach, Virginia, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Amazing aroma of pumpkin pie, allspice, cinnamon, an a trace of nutmeg. Orange color with a short lasting off white well laced head. Great taste of pumpkin and spice with a creamy feel and spicy finish.

JHeath99 (951) - Warner Robins, Georgia, USA - JUN 14, 2014
Bottle from Hop City. Pours a reddish amber with thin spotty beige colored head. Aroma of pumpkin and spice, almost like liquid pumpkin pie. Taste is pretty oaky, the abv definitely shows, with the pumpkin and spice on the back burner.

bartlebier (1723) - Belchum im Breisgau, GERMANY - APR 18, 2014
(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.
