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.

A: Dark black with a one-finger mocha head that lingers. Sudsy lacing.

S: Pumpkin spices, cinnamon, cloves intermingled with rich chocolate malts. Powerful.

T: Sip and be amazed. It's like combining the best elements of an imperial stout with the pleasure of Pumking. Pumpkin pie in the face (cinnamon, spices, clove, pie crust with a hearty finish of rich chocolate malts.

M: Medium to heavy with medium carbonation.

O: Better when sipped. Let it warm for maximum taste. Certainly not for everyone, but a great hybrid hoodoo of a beer.

I was a bit disappointed that this didn't have much stout presence. It was a bit like a dark colored pumpkin beer, kind of watery at that. Flavor was good but tasted like a decent pumpkin beer and that was it. I definitely expected more, nowhere near as good as pumking.

i absolutely loved this beer, on tap at hops and pie. its inky black in looks, with a fading tan head in a globe. the nose here is so pumpkin pie spice heavy, loads of ginger and brown sugar, with the squash. not all that different from the acclaimed pumking, just pepper in some dark roasty malts and a faint coffee undertone and its basically the same aromatically. the booze is sleepy, you would never know its strength. the taste is awesome too, i get vanilla and ginger as the dominant spices, but the pumpkin is there, nice and sweet, like roasted sweet yams. the dark malt adds another layer to this familiar profile. its amazing how well they go together, desserty for sure, but not overly sweet, i had no problem with about a 12 ounce pour of this. the feel is amazing, pure velvet on the palate and long and spice in the finish. just enough carbonation too. as good as any pumpkin beer ive had, they should do a rum barrel or something on this too, not that it needs is...
