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.

yngwie (15382) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2015
Bottle, 22oz. A dark brown beer topped by a small, dark beige head. The aroma is quite chocolatey, with a spiced touch, some roasted malts and brown sugar, It’s full-bodied, soft and lightly warming on the palate, with a bit more carbonation than I’d prefer. The flavor has a touch of bread crust, not that wimpy American or Swedish bread, but a good, solid Norwegian or Danish one. Caramel, toffee, roasted malts, some vanilla and licoricie too. Hints of booze and a nice bitterness to deal with the sweetness there is. Lasting sweet finish with a fine hoppy bitterness, roasted malts, some vanilla and licorice, bread crust, caramel sauce and a faint burnt hint. After a rather boring start, especially in the aroma, it sure picks up after a few sips. Quite wonderful this one I think. 150620

Bomber from Beer Run, opened 8/17/14. Pours a dark brown color with a thin frothy brown head. Fair head retention. Aroma of candy pumpkin, squash and a bit of roast. The taste is roast, pumpkin, candy pumpkin, mild hay and vanilla. This is the same bullshit pumpkin flavor from Pumking. I guess I should have known. Artificial tasting terrible dreck.
