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.

One of my absolute favorite pumpkin beers. The appearance is black with a thin off white head. The smell is very toasty, but the pumpkin comes through to give almost a fresh baked smell to it. The taste was very good in my opinion with heavy stout flavors like chocolate and coffee from the toasted malt and then some sweetness at the finish from the spices and pumpkin. Really liked this one.

Pours a dark brown color with a great sized off-white head, fades at a decent rate, not much lacing on the glass.

Smell is quite strong, huge pumpkin spice aroma which is surprising, I know this is a pumpkin beer but I figured the stout aspect might temper some of the spicing and it didn't one bit, some malt sweetness in the background.

Taste starts out briefly with a roasted malt front which is then overwhelmed with the pumpkin spice flavor, pumpkin flavor on its own is fairly mild, it's usually the spices added afterwards that most people recognize and this beer essentially tastes like roasted pumpkin pie, carbonation is medium-low with a good softness in the mouth.

The sweetness and the spices do tend to be cloying and strong, best shared with a friend since it may prove difficult to finish on my own.
