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.

4.26/5  rDev +7.3%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 4.5

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a Surly Darkness chalice glass. Date of bottling is 09/17/13.

Appearance: Pours a dark black color with a slight hint of brown. Moderate amount of bubbles and about one finger of tan head that fades into a thin creamy layer. Leaves a decent amount of lacing on the glass.

Smell: A sweet and roasty dark malt driven aroma with big hints of chocolate, spices, and pumpkin. Dark roasted barley malts with big hints of dark chocolate, coffee beans, cream, caramel, toffee, burnt toast, biscuit, nuts, and yeast. Big scent of spices with hints of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and clove. Noticeable scent of pumpkin. Sweet syrupy hints of molasses and brown sugar. An interesting and pretty good aroma.

Taste: Like the nose, a sweet and roasty stout taste with big notes of chocolate roast, fall spices, and pumpkin. Dark roasted barley malts with a big taste of dark chocolate, coffee beans, cream, burnt toast, sweet caramel, toffee, biscuit, yeast, nuts, and a little smoke. A mix of fall spices with notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, allspice, and clove. Good taste of pumpkin comes through. Sweet notes of molasses, brown sugar, and syrup. Hops are pretty subtle. A very good taste.

Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation. Creamy, spicy, and fairly syrupy. Alcohol heat is masked fairly well.

Overall: A very good twist on a Imperial Stout. The pumpkin and spices mix well with the roasty malt notes. Sweet but not overwhelming.

3.69/5  rDev -7.1%
look: 4 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.75

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.
