Review: Samuel Adams Fat Jack0

by Mikeat 11:24 AM

Even though we’ve had a warm week (and it’s still technically summer), it is September and there are still pumpkin beers to be had. My next pumpkin beer of the season is Fat Jack from Samuel Adams. This is an 8.5% ABV pumpkin ale boasting plenty of malt and spices. The label says “Double Pumpkin” which I assume means it should have a bit more oomph to it.

If you are a Pumpkin Ale fan and you see one that you haven’t tried before, you’re naturally compelled to give it a taste. When that beer is also aged in rum barrels for six months, you stop just short of leaping over the bar and pouring a glass for yourself instead of waiting for the bartender.

Review: Fegley’s Brew Works Pumpkin Ale0

by Nickat 10:35 AM

Fegley’s Brew Works delivered a stellar Imperial Pumpkin Ale this year with the Devious, that I reviewed last month. It was an excellent demonstration of the style and now sits at the top of my list for beers to enjoy during Thanksgiving. The second Pumpkin-style offering from The Brew Works is their original Pumpkin Ale, at a sessionable 4.7% ABV for the style.
