Quick Take: Sam Adams – Fat Jack

Beer

From the website:

This rich and luscious brew indulges in flavor with over 28 lbs. of pumpkin per barrel, for a full bodied sweetness and deep russet color.  Classic pumpkin pie spices like cinnamon, nutmeg, and allspice ignite a warmth and spark that’s deepened by an undercurrent of roasty smoked malts.  The result is a delectable brew full of enveloping layers of flavor and spice.

Look

Smell

Pumpkin pie.

Taste

Full taste, thick, perfect blend of spices.

Final Thoughts

This is probably my favorite pumpkin beer.  I was surprised how much better this was over the Fall Hornin’, since I thought that was good.  It’s a wonderful pumpkin beer, and not too hoppy.
