Samuel Adams Fat Jack Double Pumpkin
Released: August

We've already spotted a few bottles out in the wild, though it may be just a bit early for fans to get their hands on a seasonal pack featuring the lower-alcohol Harvest Pumpkin Ale.

With Boston Beer already pushing its seasonal Octoberfest, however, anything is possible. Just having access to 22-ounce bottles of this big ol' pile of pumpkin, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg and allspice around this time of year is a coup, as its 8.5% ABV will keep just fine in a fridge or cellar until it's actually fall -- when availability becomes a bit more of an issue.

Surprisingly smooth and malty for a beer of this heft, it packs just enough warmth to warrant putting it away until the temperatures drop.
