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.

Sorry, but this beer is simply revolting. Beyond cloyingly sweet. So sugary my teeth actually felt gritty after a few sips. Stacked high with the sweetness, there is a chemical, artificial-flavor flavor. Nauseating. Poured it down the sink, and that's hard for me to do. This is a beer for people who drink 3L bottles of soda every day.

Purchased at the LCBO on sale for $7.50 for a 650ml bottle. Served at 4deg C in a tulip

A- Opens well and pours a small head that is gone in no time. Very dark brown.

S- Not a lot here but does have some nice malt backbone.

T- Hits you with a surprise, not a good one though. TONS of spices. Cinnamon galore. Nutmeg, pumpkin and a touch of chocolate. Figs present. A lot going on but in weird proportions. Not my cup of tea.

M- Mighty watery for an imperial stout. Lots of carbonation

O- Not so good. This one is a drain pour

Food Pairing

This one was so bad that there is no food pairing offered

Yuk

The beer is black, but with scarlet shades when held to a light. It is topped with a thick cream-colored foam. The smell is of ripe pumpkin...mixed with bread-pudding and dark chocolate. You can almost smell the sweetness. There is spice as well. The dark stout flavor reveals itself in the taste...rostedness is underneath the sweetness, and there is a solid hop bitterness as well. Thick and intense. This is a substantial beer.
