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.

Black pour with dark tan head .... Same aroma as pumking with the pie crust feel and the pumpkin pie spices, but has additional dark roasted malts and some chocolate .... Taste is likewise very pumking like....Has a great pie crust flavor to it with a roasted and chocolate malt flavor and of course just the right pumpkin spices (cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice) .... Finish is dry and bitter with a bitter hop punch .... Great brew

Bomber from LCBO, served cool in a tulip glass.

App.: Very deep brown with a so-so tan head. Aroma: Strong cinnamon, lighter clove, a little nutmeg and ginger?, a touch buttery, like fruit cake more than pumpkin pie, not getting much stout aroma. Palate: Medium-full body, fairly creamy with restrained carbonation. Flav.: Quite spicy with plenty of cinnamon, and some lighter clove, nutmeg and ginger, still has a slightly buttery Christmas cake impression with little stout character; sweet with moderate bitterness and a fairly long spice cake finish.

The base beer is big enough to handle the spice load. Still not something I would seek out.

HIGHB4LL (779) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Bomber from Wilbur’s. Appearance: finger tan head, good lacing, head does not last, black/ opaque. Aroma: licorice, light spice, hidden pumpkin notes. Palate: full body, average carbonation, bitter finish, oily texture. Taste: sweet chocolate chips, with pumpkin sneaking up, with spicy notes of hops, finishing with a little bit of licorice and bitterness. Overall, great lasting taste, very subtle undertones, lovely beer, awesome combination of pumpkin and chocolate. Really enjoy.

Thin black pour with a small head. Spicy cinnamon aroma. Sweet caramel toffee aroma. Slight candy corn smell. Definitely better better than Pumking. Tastes sort of like a candy corn dipped in chocolate. Minor corn taste.

Boutip (5001) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 24, 2014
Bottle: Poured a black color stout with a large off-white foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of cinnamon is quite powerful and hides every other flavours. Taste is also dominated by loads of cinnamon and other spices leaving little spices to roasted malt and/or black chocolate notes or even pumpkins. Body is below average with good carbonation and no apparent alcohol. I get the concept of this beer but this just lack overall balances.
