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.

22oz bottle from Sprayberry Bottle Shop (Marietta, GA). 8.99. Botted 9/20/13. Served in a Southern Tier Pumpking goblet.

Pours deep chocolate brown with a finger and a half tan head. Head fades to a thin ring around the slightly translucent edges. Small neat spots of lace.

Strong pie spice aromas. Nutmeg, sugar, pumpkin and slight roast. Nice.

The roast is much more apparent in the taste. Still plenty of that familiar, tasty Pumpking spice with a nice chocolatey malt compliment. Cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin, brown sugar, vanilla, cocoa, roast, hints of bitter coffee and graham cracker. Enjoyable.

Medium heavy, fairly creamy body with an assertive carbonation. Aftertaste has lingering bitter cocoa and sweet pumpkin pie.

I like it. The roasty bitterness is a welcome addition to that familiar sweet imperial pumpkin base. Not the best stout I've had from Southern Tier but it's a few steps in the right direction for the Blackwater Series after Plum Noir. I'll be certain to enjoy this more while it's available.

Got a growler poured from draft. Poured into a duvel tulip. Dark black and opaque with a decent white head that fades to nothing. Aroma is toffee and butter with mild pumpkin pie spice in the background. A sip starts off sweet, fills out to a very caramel sweet flavor with background cinnamon and ginger. Finishes sweet with a decent kick of bitterness and roastiness. Medium full in body with subdued carbonation. Overall a nice dessert beer. A bit on the sweet side for me, as are most of Southern Tier's beers, but the roast in this one makes it more drinkable for me than the rest of their lineup.
