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.

22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small tan head. Nose brings out shitloads of pumpkins, spices, and roast. Flavour brings out shit tons of pumpkin puree, pumpkin spices, along with roasted malt. The pumpkin notes are extremely strong, with a long lingering spicy pumpkin finish. Surprisingly delicious stuff.

Very bad aroma. Almost like a really bad hazelnut. If you can get past the smell the initial taste isn’t too bad. But then an aftertaste comes out of nowhere with horrible flavors. I had higher hopes.

jdskinns (217) - South Roxana, Illinois, USA - JAN 14, 2014
On tap. Pours black with tan head. Aroma is pumpkin spice, bready, roasty. Taste is heavy on the pumpkin pie and graham cracker flavors like Pumpking, with just enough stout in there to throw off the taste. Very hard to finish.

Bomber. Pitch black pour, little tan head. Drank at room temp, so this was definitely an interesting experience. Lots of wet squashy hints on the nose, touches of spice, roast, and possibly a little vanilla. Flavors up front are fairly wet in the malt dept...this moves into a nice roast, little toasty on the cocoa side. Big burnt pumpkin flavors are mixed with squashyness. Nice and bitter coffee on the end, but sweet overall. Good stuff.

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - JAN 10, 2014
Bottle. Poured ruby brown with a tan head that settled to a ring and left light lace. Aroma of pumpkin pie and gram cracker crust. The flavor found pumpkin with light spice and roasted malt. Medium to full body, smooth, and a roasted pumpkin aftertaste.

craftbeersweden (532) - SWEDEN - JAN 8, 2014
22 ounce bottle from Total Wine & More in Boynton Beach, Florida. Clear (almoust see-through), dark brown beer with a a beige, foamy, three finger head that leaves lacing on the glass. Nose: Nutmeg, cinnamon, whipped cream, vanilla, chocolate- and caramel malt, roasted notes and spices. Taste: Sweet tast of chocolate, pumpkin, nutmeg and licorice. Light body to be an Imperial Stout but still very pleasant. Small amount of carbonation and a little bitterness at the end. Feels almoust like a black IPA. Great taste an I would love to store this in my "beercellar" but I can’t take it home to Sweden... :(

On tap at Capone’s. Pours a dark brown color with a creamy off white head. nearly two fingers deep. Aroma of vanilla, nutmeg, cinnamon, and clove. Some graham cracker taste. Light roast in the background. Really tasty.

tfratzke (94) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - JAN 3, 2014
Slight pumpkin and brown sugar aroma. Black in color. Somewhat thin mouthfeel. Taste of pumpkin, clove, nutmeg. I don’t get any chocolate or roast flavors. What I do get is a predominant soapy aftertaste. Meh.

Bomber from ck1, thanks bro! Pours a very, very dark brown with a brown, lightly bubbly head. Almost no lacing. Aroma has nutmeg and cloves and allspice and cardamon. Quite pumpkin-spicy, and no real trace of anything else with those strong smells. Taste has nutmeg and allspice and bakers chocolate, with some caramel back. A muddle of flavors which do not blend well. Medium bodied and tangy pumpkin spicy. Finishes tangily spicy and slightly bittersweet, and fairly short and dry. Shrug? Pieces to be interesting, and STier certainly has some nice stouts, but this one did not work for me.
