American Double / Imperial Stout |  8.60% ABV

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes/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.

No apologies, I am a huge fan of this beer

Bought as a bomber, poured into a pint glass, black with 1-2 cm light tan head

S: sense of that pumpkin spice with a hint of vanilla

M/T: medium carbonation, extremely smooth it hits you with a bit of pumpkin spice, some nutmeg, just a touch of heat of the alcohol, perfect amount. The slight bitterness is woven in with the other hints of dark chocolate that balance perfectly with the deftly spiced pumpkin - not too much nor too little. Whereas in a spiced brew, the spice dominates, in this beer it hangs around in the background to finish off some of the flavors in a very complementary fashion.

O: I could drink this every day, although is likely only available seasonally, I would recommend grabbing a couple on your way to a party with friends, several complex flavors make this beer easy to drink, smooth, and a great discussion piece.

Pretty nice beer. Smells of pumpkin and banana. Some toffee notes in the nose as well. The head is nice for about 30 seconds and then leaves entirely. Mouthful is a bit thin and the flavors in the nose shine through in the beer. There is definitely some alcohol present as well. Overall not a bad brew but I think it would definitely benefit from some aging.
