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.

22oz. pours black. medium body. Subtle pumpkin and spice. Not your typical pumpkin beer. Different enough, and it works for me.

Bottle at Exira Beer Summit IV. Pours a black color with off white head. Pumpkin cookies and ginger snaps aromas and flavors. I wasn’t expecting to like this one, but it’s pretty fun to try, but probably wouldn’t want to drink more than a point of this.

Bottle @ Exira Beer Summit IV, Day 3. Thanks to jcnielsen! Pours a clear reddish brown appearance with a light brown head. Pumpkin cookie, cardamom, chocolate, vanilla aroma. Somewhat chewy, caramel, very spicy, chalky, cardamom, cinnamon, pumpkin, sweet flavor. Sort of fun to drink at first but then kind of annoying.

Pours black with a thin dense head. Pumpkin, baked sweet potato, coffee, and dark chocolate notes. Moderately bitter. Medium to full body with a creamy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Nice unique take on a pumpkin beer.

The only way I can describe this is near-identical to Pumpking except with a delicious addition of roasted malt. This is a must-try!

22 oz bottle. The pour is light. It's a ruby-ish black. Clear, and you can see light through it. Not a good start. The head is white, thin, and leaves little lace. The aroma reminds me of Pumking. There is a blast of pumpkin and then it fades through a little bit of an oatmeal phase and it's just a wonderful aroma. The flavor is just as good. The pumpkin is pretty awesome and I love the balance with the roastyness and oatmeal characteristics of the stout. It's definitely thin for an imperial and that's where it takes most of its knocks. The mouth feel is decently thick and coating with a lingering finish to the flavors ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black pour with a tan head. The aroma has licorice, pumpkin, wood, and slight bourbon quality. It has a full body with thick texture and average carbonation. The taste is roasted and lightly bitter with a dry, alcohol finish.
