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 bomber: This one pours a clear, very dark brown color. There was a thin tan head that didn’t linger long or leave any lacing. Definitely pumpkin to the nose. Also a sweetness to the pumpkin. Perhaps some cinnamon. The taste is good, but there is a slick sweetness that isn’t necessarily appealing. Cinnamon, chocolate, pumpkin flavors are predominate. Like the Pumpking, the sweetness turns me off. I won’t be having another.

Dark black brew topped with a decent tan head; OK retention, little lacing.

Brew smells musty, vegetal, and spiced. Pumpkin and nutmeg are most prominent.

Dry, herbal, semi-sweet spices up forward, complemented by pumpkin and cacao. The pumpkin and spices taste a little artificial, but not offensively so. The stout base is rather subdued.

Fairly thin and dry mouthfeel. Very drinkable. Long finish hinting of spice.

This is not a bad pumpkin beer, and while I wouldn't turn down a glass, neither will I be ordering one up. It does nothing to offend, but nothing to enchant.

Great pumpkin stout, it taste like a pumpkin pie very smooth and very little carbonation.
