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.

Poured into my (what else?) my Southern Tier Pumking Goblet from the 22 oz. bottle that I bought at -On in Mentor, Ohio about a week ago for a price that I am not sure of. Also I do not see a “best by” date on it but anything within 5 years should be good given the style. Of course I am drawn in by the association to one of my favorite seasonal beers, Southern Tier Pumking!

A Very dark mahogany color that appears black but in front of direct light the mahogany comes through. Head is a light to medium brown, sticks around for about 60 seconds, dissipates down to a thin layer. Good look. 4.0

S Ahh…that great ST Pumking smell. I only get a hint of the dark roast malt that I am sure is within. Anyway the smell is a nice, soft sweet pumpkin and smooooth as well. These are the qualities that drew me to ST Pumking and they are noted here in this beer. 4.5

T I am genuinely surprised that the taste of this beer is so closely related to Pumking as well as the smell. I do not pick of up the dark roast malt until late in the taste spectrum on the back of my tongue. While the beer is still in my mouth it is pretty much the same as the Pumking only a little “darker.” I expected possibly a thicker, more dark roast malt taste throughout. I find many of the Southern Tier Stouts to be thin and this does not alter my viewpoint. 3.5

M As suggested, more thin than I expected and more thin than I like in an “Imperial Stout” as it says on the label. This is the disappointing aspect of the beer. 2.5

D/O Drinkability is decent despite an elevated ABV since it still does carry that great Pumking smell and taste. Overall this is an above average Imperial Stout but, of course, I do which that it was not so thin in the feel. 4.0

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.
