Samuel Adams Fat Jack Double Pumpkin Ale

Pleasantly plump and satisfied.  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.

Pumpkin Ale is one of the oldest beer styles that originated in America.  When New England colonists lacked some of the classic beer ingredients they turned to what they could find or grow themselves.  In place of malt they used other fermentable sugars such as molasses, squash, sweet potato, or pumpkin.  Alas, pumpkin beers weren’t too popular at first since the pumpkin was used for its sugar alone rather than its flavor.

Today, pumpkins, along with other traditional pumpkin pie spices, are used in addition to malt to create these fall favorites.  Craft brewers have also taken these to the next level by creating double or imperial versions, amping up the strength, flavor, and spice.

From the Brewer – “Rich & smooth with a roasty maltiness and hints of molasses & caramel.  Full and sweet from the pumpkin and warming spices that are complemented by earthy UK hops.

The deep maltiness and hint of smoke, in addition to the pumpkin, add depth and richness to fall dishes like butternut squash ravioli with sage and brown butter.
