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.

Truly, the standard by which all other stouts are measured. I love this beer.

a: black, minimal head, tan foam, feint lacing
s: roasty chocolate and coffee
t: Deep, rich chocolate with caramel and vanilla, hints of black coffee, vanilla and nutmeg cinnamon spice, gradually giving way to pumpkin. Remarkable!
m: full body, creamy, sticky, thick feel, soft carbonation, long finish,
o: A perfect imperial stout

22oz. bomber poured into a porter glass

A- Appears black at first, but when held to the light, it's dark ruby, clear. Tan head sticks around a bit, but doesn't lace.

S- Smells like Pumking with a hint of cocoa and roast.

T-Straight forward Pumking flavors, spices with that graham cracker crust flavor. There is just a touch of nuttiness, roast, and cocoa. Honestly, I could use more of the stout aspects of the beer.

M- Light side of full, again, could use more stout characteristics.

O- It's good, but honestly, I'd reach for Pumking first. Go all in on the stout side and I think it would be a much more original entry from ST.
