COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This rich and luscious brew indulges in flavor with over 28Ibs of pumpkin per barrel, for a full bodied sweetness and deep russet color. Classic pumpkin pie spices of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and allspice ignite a warmth and spark thats deepened by an undercurrent of roasty smoked malts. The result is a delectable brew full of enveloping layers of flavor and spice. At Samuel Adams we love experimenting. This series of limited edition brews represents some of our favorite small batch creations. Style: Pumpkin Beer Hops: East Kent Goldings, Fuggle Malts: Samuel Adams Two-Row Pale Malt Blend, Caramel 60, Special B, Smoked Malt Extras: Real Pumpkin, Cinnamon, Ginger, Nutmeg, Allspice

Initially released on tap as "Double Pumpkin" in 2011, it was bottled as "Fat Jack Double Pumpkin" in 2012.

Batch 2
Pours a brown color with generous beige head, compact and persistent. It has a mild nose of malt, caramel, spices, brown sugar and very light smoke. Good body strength; caramel flavor, rather sweet; it has a moderates spicy profile, unfortunately also too much liquorice, and maybe some star anise; medium to low bitterness.
Another beer that confuses pumpkin with spices (cassia). And why the big bottle? This is not a beer to drink in large quantities, it becomes quickly cloying.

Aroma: Spicy sweetness--nutmeg and ginger apparent--with hints of caramel to flesh it out. Appearance: Clear amber with rich tan head. Taste: Medium-heavy sweetness with hints of tart sourness at the edges. Palate: Full body, sticky texture, average carbonation, long, slightly sour finish Overall: Im not too impressed or blown away. I dont taste any pumpkin, and the spicy sweetness is a bit much. Theres also an odd sour finish that tastes almost like the beer has skunked. Im a bit disappointed.

Patrickctenchi (6360) - Coxs Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - NOV 3, 2013
Bottle: Deep, copper-red, clear, with a creamy, whipped, light tan head. Pumpkin pie crust and filling aroma. Flavour is nutmeg, cinnamon, pie dough, caramel. Sweet....the warmer it gets, the better.... Nice...does get a trifle boozy towards the finish.

magsinva (1197) - Virginia, USA - NOV 2, 2013
Bottle from Wegmans - I had this one a couple days ago, and its a solid, pumpkin pie leaning ale. Im just so burned out on the style, though. Yeah, November!

Bottle lake house. Pours a clear amber brown with a medium to large sized beige head. Spices,a bit of caramel. Medium bodied, sweet and a bit of caramel. Soft spices, a bit grainy and papery. Decent enough.

msalsbury (32) - Hilliard, Ohio, USA - NOV 2, 2013
The beer pours a deep brown mahogany color with a finger thick head with tan and white elements to it. The aroma is unquestionably malty, caramel, and sweet with a definite alcohol note. The flavor is surprisingly well balanced, with malt, pumpkin, and other elements perfectly matched with one another. The pumpkin lends a creamy smoothness to the beer that helps offset the warming alcohol. Spice is present but takes a back seat to malt and pumpkin. A very nice pumpkin ale.

aenima (335) - Askim, SWEDEN - NOV 2, 2013
Spicy aroma of cimmon, ginger and nutmeg. The taste is similar with some traces of pumpkin. The finish is sweet and spicy. Becomes overwelming after a while.
