Imperial stout brewed with pumpkins Warlock is brewed to enchant your palate on its own and also to counterpoint our Imperial Ale, Pumking. Make your own black magic by carefully pouring this Imperial Stout into a goblet.

Dark and mysterious, the Blackwater Series is serious about high gravity. Reanimate your senses with Warlock’s huge roasted malt character, moderate carbonation and spicy pumpkin pie aroma.

Bomber from Wine Warehouse, CHO. Pours dark brown with a large tan head. Smells of pumpkin spice, crust, whipped cream, mocha. Tastes of chocolate, crust, whipped cream, and pumpkin spice. This is just too much for me. Maybe in a 12-oz bottle I’d have liked it better.

22oz bottle Poured dark brown with a thin tan head into a snifter. Plenty of pumpkin flavor, maybe too much. Also notes of vanilla and coffee. Much thinner than expected and the pumpkin flavors were too much for my taste.

22oz bomber. Pours dark brown almost black with minimal head. Smell is all pumpkin...kind of like carrot cake. Taste follows with dry malty finish. Not bad but too much pumpkin for me.

neuromatt (1225) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JAN 8, 2015
22 oz bottle from the LCBO, served in a branded stem glass. Pours clear mahogany-chestnut with a moderate tan head that fades slowly and leaves trace fine lace. The nose has huge notes of pumpkin, along with softer ginger and cinnamon; these are paired with subtler chocolate and roasted malt, espresso and English hops. The flavour is intensely spicy throughout, with ginger, cinnamon and nutmeg. These flavours are dominant over espresso, chocolate and roasted malts. The finish is long and spicy with ginger and a slight pepperiness. On the palate it is medium in body with a dryish texture and average carbonation. Overall, an interesting imperial stout with a strong pumpkin pie character. For me, the spices are too dominant, effectively masking the other components of the beer. I could see how a bigger fan of pumpkin beers might appreciate this. 2015-01-08

theisti (3414) - Leawood, Kansas, USA - JAN 5, 2015
22 oz bomber given to me as a gift for Halloween. The pour is black brown with ruby highlights, along with a smallish light tan head. The aroma is ginger, pumpkin pie spice, pretty strong with some licorice present in the finish as well. The taste is chalky, char malt, along with the pumpkin pie spice and a bright cardamon. The finish has some of the licorice and booze. The palate is medium to heavy bodied with active carbonation and big cardamom and pumpkin booze in the finish. Weird beer, not at all my sort of thing.

Black pour dominate pumpkin with roasted malt nose. Taste follows smell with mild hop bite on end. Different take that’s pleasing.

rodenbach99 (3487) - Longueuil, Quebec, CANADA - DEC 30, 2014
Soirée Pumpkin ale au Rattle ’n’ Hum NYC. En fût. Une robe brune foncée presque noire. Un nez intense de chocolat et d’épice. Le chocolat domine. La bouche est tout aussi puissante avec une forte amertume et surtout ses saveurs de chocolat liquide. Un vrai warlock.

skmikeg (1203) - Cherry Hill, New Jersey, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Pours pitch black with a one finger tan head with pretty nice lacing. Aroma is of pumpkin meat, pine spices, buttered toast, light coco, light roasted malts, and sweet malts. Taste is roasted malts, pumpkin, coco, coffee, pie spices, sweet malts, and molasses. Has a medium-full body with a semi creamy mouthfeel and a mostly sweet, medium-long finish. Overall, a pretty tasty pumpkin stout that I wish I had for Thanksgiving dessert.
