Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: MasterSki on 09-19-2013

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.

22 oz bottle, 2013 edition, poured into a pint glass

Appearance: Pours a completely opaque, pitch-black color with a quarter of a finger of white head that quickly dissolved into a thin lacing of foam that gripped the sides of the glass and partially covered the top of the beer.

Aroma: Bananas Foster! Seriously, this beer smells like the Bananas Foster desert! Tons caramel, vanilla, brown sugar, nutmeg, cinnamon, clove, toffee, roasted malt and a touch of hops.

Taste: Wow! More Bananas Foster! Tons of roasted malt up front, followed by just as much burnt sugar, caramel, vanilla, nutmeg, toffee, a touch of dark chocolate and some subtle smoke.

Mouthfeel: Very chewy, and very smooth as there is practically no carbonation what-so-ever. With an ABV of 8.6%, there is just a hint of alcohol on the palate, which provides a pleasant alcohol warmth on the palate.

Overall: This is another of Southern Tier’s Blackwater Series that I really, really, like! It’s a delicious beer!

Thin, too much alcohol burn on the palate and has a buttery/nutty taste that deters from the brew. Would not buy again.

One of my favorite stouts period. One of my favorite beers throughout the fall season. I think Southern Tier brews their best beers in the fall (pumpking, harvest, warlock)

a: its a rich black color that doesn't allow any light to shine through. nice solid 2 finger tan head that hangs around like a champ

s: pumpkin puree, cream, roasted malt, toasted oak, nutmeg, vanilla, and a nice amount of milk chocolate

t: taste starts off with a rush of smooth pumpkin flavor. that fades to a slightly bitter roasted malt flavor, caramel, toffee, dark chocolate. that fades to some mellow spices, nutmeg and clove. your hit with a little more of that pumpkin flavor, and then ends with just a little bit of alcohol flavor

m: mouthfeel is surprisingly light for a stout, but seems about right for a pumpkin beer (which is a bit unique to have while drinking a stout). pretty high-level carbonation

o: i like this. its a nice take on a pumpkin-esqe beer. blending it with a nice roasty flavor is an enjoyable aspect. the mix of sweet, caramel, pumpkin, and spice works nicely in here

The combination of the pumpkin, spices, and dark roasted malt doesn't work for me. I figured I'd love this one, but I was disapponted.
