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.

Long-time fan of the Pumking, I did not think Southern Tier could make a better pumpkin ale. Boy was I wrong. Warlock is dark deliciousness. I have had both draft Warlock and bottled, I prefer draft. Perfectly spiced with a very satisfying mouth feel, this beer just makes you want to order another.

A - Poured vigourously into a chalice, deep infinite blackness with a creamy, caramel colored head. No light showing through, and the head leaves ludicrous lacing on the glass, this is a monster of a stout!

S - The smell knocks my nose for a loop, I get the stout first, the deep rich chocolate and coffee aromas tease my nose, then it fades into a warm burnt vanilla and some dark eartiness, until BAM! The pumpkin comes out of nowhere, a nice sweet/sour scent with some hints of nutmeg and cinammon, and a caramel thickness warms my nose. Incredible scent.

T - Incredible. Their Choklat stout was already one of my favorite beers ever, and this just takes things to a whole new level. The rich chocolate notes that Choklat hit are accentuated by the bite of the pumpkin and spices, and are brought to new heights. My favorite points of Choklat and Pumpking mixed into one beer! Deep, rich and smooth chocolate velvet greets the tongue, mouth washed over with some deep caramel and vanilla, some hints of figs maybe even black coffee to get some bitterness going. The pumpkin fades in like a warm fire starting, first some graham cracker crustiness, then the vanilla and nutmeg cinammon spice, and then some sweet pumpkin coolness. The pumpkin mixes well with the chocolate, and makes a truly unforgettable fall treat.

M - Thick and chewy, very heavy beer, but that's how a good stout should be. Warms the mouth and, you'd never guess the high ABV from taste or feel alone. Very smooth, regardless of the thickness. A great example of a stout for fall/winter.

O - I've always been a fanboy of Southern Tier's stouts, and this one is no different. Incredible flavor and texture, the chocolate and pumpkin make for a great experience, and anybody who loves dark beers, or stouts, or pumpkin beers, or beer in general should definitely try this. Southern Tier has done it again!
