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.

daknole (9225) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - AUG 15, 2014
Dark brown color, light brown head. Very spice and chocolate forward. Some toasted pumpkin. But something just didn’t sit right with me. It was flabby and seemed to get worse as it warmed.

Drake (8617) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Bomber from Beer Run, opened 8/17/14. Pours a dark brown color with a thin frothy brown head. Fair head retention. Aroma of candy pumpkin, squash and a bit of roast. The taste is roast, pumpkin, candy pumpkin, mild hay and vanilla. This is the same bullshit pumpkin flavor from Pumking. I guess I should have known. Artificial tasting terrible dreck.
