American Double / Imperial Stout |  8.60% ABV

Availability: Fall

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.

I hate to leave a review so short and negative, but this particular beer tastes, to me, what guinea pigs smell like. Pumpkin beers are a hard sell for me, but the flavor in this reminds me more of the rat I saw behind the store I work at tonight than of anything pumpkin. Maybe I'm missing something in this one. But, you'd be hard pressed to get me to drink it again unfortunately. Sorry southern tier, I love stouts, the bigger the flavors the better, but this one, just does not at all do it for me. Hard poured into the sink.

Appearance: Black. Mocha head. No lace left.
Smell: Cinnamon, malt, and pumpkin.
Taste: Cinnamon, pepper, malt, and maybe pumpkin.

Honestly, I'm having trouble differentiating this from Pumpking (maybe it has been a while). It's great, no doubt. It has the spices that are just right for Fall. Stout or Ale, this is certainly worth trying. The Pumpking is significantly cheaper, so I'll probably defer to that for this flavor and experience.
