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.

Bottle from Tipples. Pours a dark brown with creamy off white head. Aroma is big nutmeg, cinnamon, roast, some nutty aroma. Pretty much smells like Pumking. Flavor is heavy spice with the nutmeg and cinnamon, but really nicely finished with a creamy sweet whipped cream pumpkin flavor. Creamy medium-heavy mouthfeel with medium highish carbonation. Lingering vanilla cream and nutmeg on the palate. I love the creamy mouthfeel and whipped cream flavor going on, but the nutmeg just cuts through this way too hard. I have the same issue with Pumking--who wants to drink liquid nutmeg? I don't get it.

NeoHippie2 (990) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Dark brown almost black pour with a tan head. Aroma of pumpkin pie and lots of roasted nuts. Flavor is like German roasted nuts. Lots of cinnamon, nutmeg, and notes of clove. So complex! Super smooth finish no hint of the abv whatsoever. Really delicious brew, extremely well done!

gmb5127 (234) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Aroma is mild but full of pumpkin and cinnamon. Taste is alright, it tastes a little watered down, but it’s solid.

jflopsu (539) - New Jersey, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Pours a dark black with a light brown head. Has a unique aroma with pumpkin, chocolate, and brown sugar. Thick textured beer with a unique flavor of pumpkin, malt and vanilla - which is odd given the aroma.

Travlr (11810) - Washington, Washington DC, USA - OCT 11, 2013
Draft. Completely black color, beige head. Amazing aroma of cinnamon, vanilla, cornmeal, fruity coffee. Taste is burnt chocolate biscuit, espresso, vanilla, dry finish. Delicious.

jmcgavin12 (490) - Madison, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Poured a dark nightly black with lacing tan head. Aroma is full of caramel vanilla cinnamon and roasted pumpkin. Taste is sweet but not as overpowering as the punking. Great great beer and will definitely have again

hopdog (8933) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2013
On tap at Capone’s. Poured a dark brown with a frothy sized off white head. Pumpkins, spices, roast, and chocolate. More pumpkin in the smell and more spices in the tastes.

tcane7 (1663) - Pennsylvania, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Bottle. Pours a deep brown with thin, diminishing beige head and no lace. Nose of vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, roasted malt. Pretty much smells like Pumking with roasted malt. Medium body. Too light in body and malt flavor to be an imperial stout. Light roast flavor but dominated by pie spice and vanilla. Its good but if I’m going to have an over the top pumpkin pie flavored beer I’ll stick to the King. Easy drinking for 8.6%

jbruner (2315) - Athens, Georgia, USA - OCT 9, 2013
Pours an opaque black from the bottle with bubbly tan head that leaves light lacing. Aroma is pumpkin, sweet cinnamon and nutmeg, graham cracker and chocolate. Taste follows, like a chocolate pumpkin pie with graham cracker crust. Nice.
