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.

If not as good or better than Pumpking. Cola color nice head from the bottle, pumkin spice fragrance, lots of mellow tastes and a bit more bite.

Bottle From Reg for wicked ale tasting. Poured Black with Tan head. Pumpkin spice aromas, with gingerbread. Well balanced flavors of rich gingerbread and whipped cream, spices, and lots of roasted malts. Creamy palate. One of the best pumpkin beers I have ever had.

Bottle... smells just like Pumking! Looks like a porter... Decent head. Dark black in color. Taste is nice touch of roasted malts followed by the classic southern tier pumking taste with a nice touch of hoppy bitterness in the after taste. Body is not big, malty or chewy for an Imperial stout which I would have liked it to be. But it is easy to drink. Nice brew, but would rather just have pumking.

ESBob (357) - Indiana, USA - OCT 27, 2013
On Tap on Trion in New Haven, Indiana. Pours an opaque black, moderate tannish head. Aroma is a creamy pumpkin nutmeg spice, but balanced by roast malt. Taste grows more complex as it warms, but I get vanilla, pumpkin spice, nutmeg, deep roast malt, slightly bitter finish which is great for this initially sweet beer.

sweet pumpkin pie spice aroma -- nutmeg, vanilla, all spice. opaque. moderate off-white head. a lot like the Pumpking, except more bitter, sharper, more alcohol perceivable. bitter finish and aftertaste. this is like a sharper, less smooth, less rounded Pumpking.

Bottle. This tastes literally like Pumking mixed with one of their stouts. Choklat maybe? Not sure. A little thin for what I was expecting for the style. Has the same vegetable-ish flavor as you get from Pumking, it kinda overwhelms the roasted sweetness from the stout. Ok beer.

A rival to pumking. Very similar sroma of sweet corn and vanilla. Dark amber body. Tasty. Nice beer.

This is pumking colored black. Aromas of sweet buttery pumpkin and caramel. Flavors are pumking and dark roster malts and hop. Pretty good.
