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.

4.29/5  rDev +8.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

Pours black with a thick tan head. Smell is a crazy mix of carnival meets pumpkin pie scents. Malty pie crust, chocolate, caramel, toffee, peanuts all mixed up together. A lot like the Pumking but with more roasty smells from the darker grain.

First sip brings a lot of roasted grain flavor, a bit bitter and acrid. Some hints of pie spices follow but subdued by the dark grain flavor. Finishing the flavor up is some hop flavor and bitterness, a bit of piney resin sweetness to mingling with the malt.

Finishes rather clean for such a complexity of flavor. Roasted grain holds back the spicing enough to keep it from getting overwhelming on your palate. This is one of the better pumpkin stouts I have had and the brewer has found a way to marry the flavors of pumpkin bie and roasted grains without muddling them or overpowering my taste buds. Surprisingly drinkable!
