22oz, Bottled 8/26/13
Riedel tulip

A: Pours a dark brown with ruby red tones in there. In glass you can see that red character. Initially had about a half finger of light tan head. Faded into a thin layer. Leaving some lacing sheeting.

S: Smells a lot like PumKing. Sweetness of pumpkin pie. Lactose hints. Spices. Minimal flesh. Bready malts to pull in the crust. Really no stout like nose character here.

T: Your typical pumpkin spice blend hits you first: nutmeg, cinnamon, etc. Fleshy pumpkin flavor. Really no roasty stout flavors.

M: It's a big medium. Thinner than expected.

served on-tap at mammosers tavern in hamburg, ny into a standard pint glass. this was labeled as a cream stout.

recieved with a nice 1 finger of creamy light mocha colored head, ok retention. nearly opaque black body, some brown noticable on the edges.

not getting a whole lot in the aroma. some light roasty, toasted malts and a bit metallic. some earthiness as it warms.

lots of earthy notes in the taste. some roasted and toasted grains, light coffee and cocoa with some nice bitterness in the finish. just slightly metallic at times.

somewhat creamy, maybe not as much as you would expect for a "cream" stout, but it works. more of a mouthfeel of a porter. a nice smooth feel with a medium to light body.

overall, not a bad cream stout, simple, but sessionable. simple, but i always enjoy trying these small ST one offs. im guessing the ABV falls right around 5-6%.

This was served on tap at The Old Toad in Rochester, NY. It arrived in a nonic glass and showed a deep brown color, with maroon flecks when held to light. It held a one finger head of cream colored bubbles, which exhibited decent retention. The bubbles receded into thick lacing down the sides of the glass that became spotty as the session went on. No sediment was noted and carbonation appeared light. The aroma spoke of light and roasty chocolate malts, with an added sweetness of fresh milk chocolate. There was a faint bite from coffee bean and caramel sugars, with booze and a deepness of soil and minerals coming with warmth. As we sipped, the taste began with rich and roasty malts. The sweetness of sugars and chocolates also began right at the start, lasting the entirety of the sip. Through the middle there were more sugars at the peak, but these were blunted by darker grain and the faintest hop oils, which came off as citric and earthy among the sweetness. The finish was more of the same, with creamy sweetness and cutting from steely grain and coffee bean bitters. The malts were their deepest at this point, approaching the realm of smoke, but not quite. Lactic sourness and booze came with warmth. The aftertaste breathed more of hops than did the actual tasting, and equally as strong with grain. There were also hints of red cherry sweetness and fruitiness, with the alcohol ever present throughout. The body was full and the carbonation was average. The mouth was fully coated, but eventually dried with a smack of sweetness. There was cream slurp and cream, and the mouth was left highly satisfied. The abv seemed appropriate and the beer drank easily.

Overall, what we enjoyed most about this brew was the creamy, milky feel. The flavor was wildly robust and deep, seemingly in a constant battle between dark and roasty, and light and sweet. The aroma was a little lighter than expected, especially after taking our first sip, but otherwise this does not disappoint as a sweet stout.

22oz bottle, bottled 8/26/13, poured into a Pumking goblet
A: Black with a one-finger tan head
S: Pumpkin, caramel, dark malts
T: Dark malt, some pumpkin, some pumpkin pie spice but also a bitterness at the end that detracts a bit from the overall taste, particularly since it's what lingers
M: Medium-bodied, creamy but again the bitterness at the end is a dislike
O: Overall a solid effort, worth a try though Pumking reigns supreme

Poured from a growler into my 2xIPA glass. It poured a very dark brown color with a thick, frothy, tan colored head filling the top inch of the glass. Great head retention and lacing as I drank it.

The aroma shows the sweeter, lactose mixing with some dark, roasted malts. I get some milk chocolaty and caramel notes to it as well.

The taste shows a little more of the sweeter, lactose, milk chocolaty flavors up front. Towards the finish I get more of the roasty malts start to come out and give it somewhat of a dry, bitter, slightly burnt finish.

The mouthfeel is medium bodied for the style and moderately creamy. Overall I thought it was a pretty solid beer of the style. It had a very nice balance between the roasty bitterness and the lactose sweetness. Very enjoyable beer overall.

Poured Warlock Pumpkin into a Belgian Tulip.

A - Pours black with just a touch of ruby highlights around the edges.

S - Clove, allspice, nutmeg, light pumpkin.

T - Taste pretty much follows the nose with just a touch of roasted malts in there. It has a touch of bitterness in there mid palate. Not bad.

M - It's closer to a regular stout than a Imperial, but probably a good choice for a pumpkin beer anyway. Medium to high carbonation, medium mouthfeel.

O - A damn good pumpkin beer, maybe the best I've had in awhile. Cheers!

On tap at the Ebenezer Ale House.

Dark with just minor reddish highlights at the thinnest part of the glass, with a modest head that laced well.

Aroma was mostly roasted barley, a hint of hops and slightly sweet.

Flavor was sweet, yes, but tempered by a strong contingent of roasted malt. As the previous poster noted, I got some porter flavors here. There are just enough hops to not totally rely on only blackened grain, and the roasty flavors are more coffee-like than bitter pitch black burnt barley.

Sort of an Oat Jr, moderate ABV but very full mouthfeel. A good beer to have when you only want one to sip, and not a high-test one at that.
