Samuel Adams Fat Jack Double Pumpkin Ale review

Samuel-Adams-Fat-Jack-Double-Pumpkin-AleI’ve been duped again.  Why do I keep letting this happen?

Samuel Adams Fat Jack Double Pumpkin Ale is yet another pumpkin beer that promises pumpkin taste and doesn’t deliver.  This is nothing new, but I feel a bit more swindled this time because of the very name of the beer.  Calling your beer “Double Pumpkin” implies to me that this will taste even more like pumpkin than most pumpkin beers.  Yet, I can detect no pumpkin taste at all!  Let me bring in David Lookner again:  


Yeah, I should mention this isn’t a revolting beer.  In fact, I thought it was pretty good.  The problem is they promised me double pumpkin and gave me no pumpkin at all!  Still, I did enjoy the beer and at 8.5%, this beer will certainly get the job done.

But, again… no pumpkin flavor!

I should have had a Samuel Jackson…
