COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle. Very nice pumpkin and spice aroma, absolutely delicious. Flavour mostly matches, fortunately - nice blend of stout and pumpkin pie. But not incredible. Preferred the He Said.

Don’t try to drink this at the end of a session. Very powerful stout and pumpkin character, which may work well as a sample, but overwhelms with any volume. Tried with Ryan in Omaha, 2016.

Dark brown to black colored, small tan non lasting head. Aroma is of spices, pumpkin, chocolate, cinnamon and Speculoos biscuits! Taste is medium to very sweet caramel, Speculoos biscuit spice mix, cinnamon, chocolate, some pumpkin, bit of alcohol and warmth. Medium+ bodied, creamy, soft carbonation.

islay (1863) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 27, 2015
Approximately 1/3 of a 22 oz. bottle, consumed on 12-23-15. Scents of pumpkin, nutmeg, dust, walnuts, and vanilla. Not my favorite set of smells at all. Reminds me in aroma of an old lady’s house. Pours dark brown with a deep amber hue and a small amount of beige head. Burnt malts taste. Flavors of dark chocolate, nutmeg, coconut husk, and squash. Increasingly pumpkin-spicy on multiple sips. Medium to full body. Lively in the palate. Overall, memorably unlikable and offputting.

AnokaBrewer (149) - Anoka, Minnesota, USA - DEC 26, 2015
22 ounce bottle pours clear and black with almost no head and very little carbonation. Aroma has caramel and spice. Sweet at first with a light bitterness in the finish. Thick texture and the finish goes from bitter to a long sweet finish.

cwill (45) - Coatesville, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2015
Thank to the bartender at Prontos in Thorndale, PA for recommending this winner. Dark brown pour with minimal head. Aromas of baked pumpkin pie, cinnamon and nutmeg. Taste is sweet pumpkin and dark chocolate with a smooth bitter sweet malty finish. Creamy full bodied mouth feel with medium carbonation. This beer is awesome. It is unbelievably smooth for 10% ABV. Hands down best I’ve had in the the style. If you like imperial stouts give this a shot.

SpringsLicker (3322) - Tennessee, USA - NOV 23, 2015
Dense black pour with a minimal tan head. Aroma of Pumpkin pie spice. The flavor is pumpkin pie, some chocolate and there’s a stout in here too! Smooth, not too sweet but still something you want to sip slowly.

tap - This brew has a strong pumpkin spice aroma. It’s sweet, spicy, and roasty with kind of a candy flavor. Too much candy. There’s a roasty, sweet finish. It’s a tasty brew and smells great but the sweetness can be a bit overpowering.
