Always looking to try something new, this year we decided to brew a variation of our Harvest Pumpkin Ale. The result is Samuel Adams® Double Pumpkin Ale, in which we add more pumpkin and more spices to our original pumpkin brew. At a higher alcohol level, this beer is strong and full of the flavors we love during this time of year. We brew with real pumpkin, which adds a full body and sweetness to this dark, reddish-amber brew. Deep roasted malts, including smoked malt, lend a distinct roasted character, while traditional pumpkin pie spices give the beer its spice note.

    Pours a deep amber colour with a beige frothy head, good retention and nice creamy lacing. Sweet malt aromas with the caramel and pumpkin pie spices. The taste starts on the sweetness, but less than expected from the scent. The spices balance out the caramel and even some hops show up. Bread notes from the malts lingers. Very smooth going down (oily and silky). Hope the LCBO gets this one every year.

    The beer pours a dark orange, with a thin tan coloured head. The aroma was pumpkin, spices, and citrus. The mouthfeel is medium bodied, slightly creamy, with average carbonation. The flavour is sweet malt, pumpkin, spices, and a citrusy finish. The alcohol is noticeable, but doesn't detract.

    Really impressive yet hard to describe appearance. Dark amber with a faint redness/mahogany around the edges. Thick amount of lace. Nose is mild pumpkin and spice. Mouthfeel is thin and taste was mild pumpkin. Not quite as good as I had hoped.

    Oh my lord , I'm not even going to go through the normal routine of rating. I've drank about 40 pumpkin beers in the last month. And this is one is nuts. Sam Adams has hit a home run with this one. Warlock is fantastic & Good Gourd are fantasistic but this is real pumpkin !

    Full of fusel alcohol and light on the pumpkin flavor/aroma. I thought that the Harvest Pumpkin ale was just a few notches better than this. It could have done more with what it was trying to be, and usually Sam Adams delivers a solid product. This was a bit of a swing and miss.

    Not quite as bold as I was expecting, but a decent pumpkin none-the-less. Obviously pumpkin pie spice to the nose and flavor was decent, but the texture was lacking - a bit thin.

    Nose is pretty similar to pumpkin pie, nutmeg, cinnamon, etc. Very clear amber color, nice looking. Mouthfeel is full but left me with a watery type thinness at the end...if that makes sense. Flavor is only very mildly pumpkin, more cinnamon, malty sweetness, a touch of peat. Not bad, not really as festive as I was hoping.

    Beautiful amber coloring that sparkled like a champagne. Highly effervescent; continually kept up a perfect, creamy tan head. Aroma was a bit disappointing. The pumpkin and nutmeg/spice aromas were there and pleasant, but they were weak - you had to keep searching for them, even after significant warming. The alcohol in this was definitely present and helped make this beer different from most of the overly sweet pumpkin ales out there. The mouthfeel was whisky-ish, like I was sampling a pumpkin scotch. Nice bitterness in the finish and aftertaste - reminded me a bit of burnt marshmallow. The change of pace was nice, but it lacked some depth and complexity imo. It never really went anywhere.

    Aroma has decided pumpkin and cinnamon notes, plus hints of malt and cloves. It pours a clear mahogany with a fairly thick light, slightly pumpkin-orange head that leaves good lacing. Satisfying flavor has a malty core with a noticeable but not overpowering pumpkin tone, as well as notes of cinnamon, horehound and cloves and a touch of caramel. Smooth texture has good body though not a lot of fizz. Happy Autumnal Equinox! (In the northern hemisphere, anyway.)

    22 oz bottle. Pours ruby amber with a medium creamy off white head that goes to a thin film and leaves some lacing.

    The aroma is sweet, slightly vegetal, malts with a lot of spicy cinnamon and some ginger.

    The flavor is sweet caramel malts with some roast and a little dark fruit. It's followed by a ton of heavy spice - mostly cinnamon with some ginger. The mouthfeel is medium to full bodied with smooth carbonation.

    Overall, a decent pumpkin beer. It's overly spiced with too much cinnamon. But the base is kind of a winter warmer old ale with some light roast and dark fruit that is kind of cool and plays well with the pumpkin.
