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.

Dark mahogany pour with a brown head. Aroma is pumpkin and spices. Taste is pumpkin, spices(cinnamon, nutmeg) and creamy. Pumpkin dominated the beer. I barely finished the bottle by myself. I’d suggest sharing and drink it during a meal.

2014 bottle from the LCBO. Light colour for an imperial stout, minimal head. Nose is heavy on the spice, vanilla, pumpkin pie. Taste is similarly spiced, almost too much spice. Weird medicinal bitterness hits me, similar to Pumking. Finish is more like a stout with some roasty chocolate notes. Not a fan of this one.

Alengrin (2742) - BELGIUM - JAN 28, 2015
Sampled with tderoeck, 77ships and Benzai. Basically a fruit stout, albeit with pumpkin instead of the usual sweet fruits. Dense and stable, light beige head, colour very dark bronze, near to black. Aroma strongly reminiscent of cloves like any American pumpkin ale, chocolate, liquorice, coffee, rice pudding, vanilla; rich taste of fruity sweetness, tangy spiciness and caramelly and chocolatey malts, full but still less ’fat’ and oily than expected from the style, with gentle roasted bitterishness in the finish as well as spicy yeastiness and peppery hops accent. Interesting and very tasty.
