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.

On tap from The Beer Store Wilson. Black hue, zero visibility with mostly lasting frothy light khaki head. Virtually no lacing. Strong spice and pumpkin from a can aromas. Taste of canned pumpkin with whipped topping up front with the same finish plus more spice on the end. Oily on the palate.

codfishh (201) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 13, 2014
Poured from a 650ml bomber pitch black opaque, thin tan head that disappears quickly. Aroma has some light vanilla with cinnamon and pumpkin spice. Taste has lots of vanilla up front and fades into some light pumpkin spice there’s almost no roast flavor. Very smooth beer and not terrible for a pumpkin beer.

22oz bottle from the Craft Ale House in Limerick. I tasted a lot more of the Pumking side of things than an imperial stout. There was a truck-ton of pumpkin, nutmeg and cinnamon in the nose and flavors. I got a subtle hint of roasted malt, bread and bitter and dry hops. I don’t think I’d purchase another bottle of this.

Pours jet black with 2 finger tan head. Smells amazing, pumpkin pie without a doubt. Taste is incredibly pumpkin strong and smooth all the way.

hopmelt (197) - Painesville TWP, Ohio, USA - AUG 9, 2014
Pours dark brown, finger creamy tan head dissipates quickly, slight lacing. Aroma cinnamon, allspice, nutmeg, pure pumpkin, bready, roast malt. Taste spice dominates, slight roast bitterness to balance, pumpkin in background. Mouthfeel medium-full body, medium-high carbonation, balanced finish, a bit on the sweet side, slight roast astringency, very slight alcohol warming. Overall roasty version of Pumking, which cuts through the sweetness well, one of the best pumkins available.

DialSquare (4321) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - AUG 8, 2014
Bomber from Savor Growl. Deep brown-black pour and thin tan head. Aroma is big spice, caramel, nutmeg. Tastes are pumpkin, chocolate, nutmeg, caramel, cinnamon, crakers. Soapy. I’m not sure why I keep trying pumpkins - not my style. This one is particularly not to my tastes.

rougeau13 (2630) - Richmond, Texas, USA - AUG 3, 2014
Very dark, nearly black with a bubbly beige head. Aroma of pumpkin pie and roast. Tastes like roast, chocolate, and gingerbread. Body more medium than full with a touch of bubbly carbonation. Good.

Forgot this was pumpkin spice. Tastes like ginger bread cookies. Seriously. That’s all you need to know.
