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.

Deliciously dark brew. The pumpkin is a bit rancid at first, but once your palate is saturated, it perfectly smooths away any bitterness, and adds that rich, squashy creaminess that fills out the mouth and make this a pleasure to drink.

From the 650 ml. bottle. Sampled on August 30, 2014 - Labor Day weekend. I do try to wait until after Labor Day to crack open pumpkins brews.

Deep dark brown to black pour with a modest tan head that becomes a ring.

Oh man - that aroma. Pumpkin spice, yes. But a rich dark sweet malt character to even it all out.

Medium to full body.

The taste? Were you expecting the best? Well, you will not be disappointed. Pumpkin spice, dark roasted malts, and mild hop finish. This is quite remarkable.

Excellent, full bodied beer. It goes down smooth with just the right amount of spice. It reminds me of pumpkin pie in a bottle.
