Pumpking in stout form. Delicious, but still a stout. Drinkable, less sweet than Pumpking. Same smell.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
A wonderful pumpkin taste blended into a fine stout. The aroma and flavor when served in Belgian beer glass simply makes a well balanced seasonal.

4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bomber. Pours transparent black with a slight desert tan head. Aroma is primarily of pie spices backed with a roasted quality. At first taste my palate is swept away by a large spice character followed closely by the taste of a slightly overdone pie crust. The roasted quality of the malt intertwines magnificently with the spices to form a unique flavor reminiscent of a fine pastry. The body is absolutely perfect. Pumpking is outdone by the complexity of Warlock. Have another? Its impossible to say no when I’m subdued by liquid black magic.

bottle. near black with a small tan head. that awesome graham cracker, spiced pumpkin pulp aroma that’s in pumking with a roasted note. It has that same secret flavor addition like pumking, however, its much less sweet with roasty stout notes. low hop addition. dryish, chalky finish.

3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours dark black with creamy head. Nose has roasty malts plus the hint of pumkin pie mix. Taste is roasty and malty with pumpkin spice all over. Not bad but to be enjoyed in small doses.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Dark pour, almost black. Small tan head. Not much lace left behind. Smell is pumpkin pie and vanilla creme. Much like Pumking. Taste is exactly the same as Pumking. Maybe a bit more roast. It’s like they put Sinimar in Pumking. Slight bitterness in the back. But just as good as Pumking, almost.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
10/16/13 I'm a little disappointed. It's basically a Pumking flavored front backed by a bitter roast malt flavor. I was hoping for a better balance between stout and pumpkin. This is leaning way too much toward Pumking. The feel is even thinner for being an imperial stout. I'm glad I tried it, but I probably will just stick to regular Pumking in the future.
