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.

Looks like Dr pepper with a small tan head and good lacing. Lots of spices. Clove and pumpkin pie filling some nutmeg a tiny bit of roasty malts. Avg palate. Flavor is quite sweet pumpkin pie with chocolate on top. Too sweet for me but interesting to try.

Slipstream (2231) - USA - APR 26, 2014
A dry, malty stout. Flavors of espresso, tobacco, dark bread, molasses, and maple syrup. The aroma leans toward being yeasty. I didn’t sense all the spices that some others did. Pretty good, but I was hoping for better from Southern Tier.

- Salida, Colorado, USA - APR 13, 2014
651 ml. bottle. Pours a medium, well retained, beige head, with some lacing, over a clear ruby brown (SRM 25) body....nose is roasted malts with cocoa, nutty tones reminiscent of almond, roasted pumpkin, light spice, minimal hops....taste is slight sweet malts, with light hints of dried fruits, almond extract, roasted pumpkin, mild allspice, hints of cocoa, minimal esters, finishing slightly dry, with mild spice hop bitterness.....mouth feel medium body, mild stickiness, slight alcohol warmth, mild acid on the finish. This is a deftly made beer. The spices and pumpkin were gently used resulting in a beer with intrigue rather than domination. This is probably a spice/herb vegetable beer not an Imperial Stout by BJCP guidelines. Rating as an Imperial. BJCP 6/3/12/4/6
