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.

This brew pours a pure black color with a two finger mocha head. Little lacing; low carbonation.

The smell is full of pumpkins, cardamom, vanilla, allspice chocolate, nutmeg and roasted malts.

The taste follows the nose, this is a surprisingly good pumpkin ale for a beer that bills itself as an Imperial Stout. All of the elements that were present in the smell are present in the taste. First the chocolate then the pumpkin spices hit, then a nutty taste, a slight roasted malt taste then gingerbread moving to vanilla. It goes down smoothly with a strong taste and smell of vanilla remaining in the aftertaste.

This beer is interesting and complex; there is a lot going on here and I will need to have more in order to take it all in.

halloween is my least favorite time of year for beer. I think martzens are two malty and I dislike pumpkin beers. However this beer makes the pumpkin palatable to me. I think it's well done. Kudos to Southern Tier.

Had both bottle and draft, with the ladder of the two receiving the '4'.
