Their specs says it's sweeter than Pumking.Just saying.
Has anyone tried making a black and tan out of Pumking and Warlock? Would probably taste pretty good.
As some have said, I found this to be remarkably similar to Pumking. It's a good beer, but it's obvious that they were just trying to do a variation of Pumking. We review it here.... http://eriebetterbeer.com/2013/09/1...ock-imperial-sweet-stout-with-pumpkin-spices/
Like Morey said above- it's incredibly similar to Pumking, and wouldn't really work as a blend. Whatever roasty qualities it has on the finish (which is surprisingly not all that much) would be erased by the blend, and you may as well drink unblended Pumking at that point.
For some reason, I used to think Pumking was an Imperial Stout brewed with pumpkins until my friend sent me my first bottle last week. I think I might like the new Warlock beer more.
Anyone seen this in the greater Boston area?
It seemed like it took a while for Plum Noir to hit to I'm guessing it might be a while before we see Warlock as well.
Uinta's oak jacked was the finest pumpkin beer i've ever tasted. Really impressed.
I agree with those saying it's too similar to Pumking.. but I guess that's not really a bad thing, imo.. I just wish their were more chocolate notes, but it's still outstanding stuff..
Tastes amazing, my buddy was able to get a few bottles in NJ last week. He gave me a bottle to take home.... will be drinking it this weekend!
None in philly yet from what i hear, Roger Wilco in NJ has/had it as of last week
As of yesterday, the brewery said "Shipping to PA in the next month to six weeks".
That was probably 3 months ago..
since youre stuck in 2007 can you tell my old self to not bet on the Pats in the 08 super bowl?
I'm also pleased with your ability to read and enjoy sarcasm.
we are all out there!
You'll have to take a ride to Connecticut, seems the only place they shipped to in the tristate area at least according to their website. I snatched up three of em, happy to part with one, I'm in the city mon - fri if your interested let me know!
Thanks for the kindness. However, I had to work a few hours in Norwalk, CT today and scooped some up for myself!
In stock at Shangy's in Emmaus, PA. Saw 2 other cases sell while I was there getting mine. Also, first had this from Collier's in Cape May, NJ in the first week of September. Really enjoy it...the aroma is incredibel
Haven't seen it in town yet but most of the liquor stores across the bridge have it.
anyone see it around chicago? keep me posted, thx.
this is all over nj - inbox me br0 shelfturds 4 shelfturds
and yes it is reallllllllllllllly delicious
Any NH sightings?
Has anyone found this in GA/Atlanta area?
anyone find it around the detroit area?
It's not in our distro, so I'm looking forward to when I get my hands on one. I thought Pumking was a stout until a few weeks ago, when my friend sent me a bottle. So, this is right up my alley in terms of pumpkin beer wants.
Is this good? We got in a case at my liquor store and were putting it out for $7.99 a bottle, no one has bought it yet though. Have a few stashed away, just wanted to know if its worth saving some for myself.
I always thght the "Kinger" was one of if not The best Pumpkin brew out there. I think Warlock is even Better. It is Smooth & Roasty, full of Flavor w/ the Lovely aftertaste of King.
- It's perfectly balanced.
I dont really do the pumpkins & Okty's much nowdays, but this one is Simply Amazing.
If you like Pumking...when you taste Warlock, the first words out of your mouth will be :
"Holy shi*"! -- trust me.
Johnson city and Kingsport will have some next week!!
Personally I liked Warlock quite a bit more than Pumking, but stouts are my jam. I take care of the beer/wine/liquor inventory at a resort, but my desk is right next to the beer, wine, and liquor manager of the corresponding market. I heard the sales rep saying that he was going to put some Warlock in an empty spot on the shelves and my ears perked up. I bought it the day he put it out. It doesn't look like anyone else has touched it, so I may have to stock up a little bit.
i whole-heatedly agree.
I'm sure it's been mentioned, but it's began to populate the Raleigh area since last week. I picked up one bottle, tried it and fell in love. I went back and bout 5 more. It's really good.
I actually hate pumking, but I recently had Warlock on tap this weekend and found it to be less sweet than pumking. Very enjoyable, but still, a 9oz pour was all I needed.
I agree. I read it was sweeter, but I guess my interpretation of "sweet" is different than most. The full bomber of Warlock was good for me; I had to share the Pumking with my wife because the flavor was a bit too overpowering to me.
I just got a bottle yesterday at the liquor store in Kenmore. Give it a go! They also have a pretty good selection of local beer if you're interested.
Anyone know if this will be hitting portland or? I'm assuming so since we get all the other stuff but always late to the party.
Love Southern Tier, as those who saw my Southern Tier thread before it was inexplicably deleted a few weeks ago can attest. But good lord, I could barely choke this beer down. Just awful.
I like it, but it tastes very similar to Pumking until the finish, where it picks up a more roasty note.
Even the color isn't as dark as I was expecting. It's more like a dark ruby, mahogany color than black. Definitely not as 'stout' as the other Blackwater stouts..
I think I actually like it better than Pumking fresh because eventually the sweetness of the King weighs on my mouth too much. I like my Pumking a few months later when some of the nutmeg and that settles and it isn't as sugary, especially in the aftertaste. Warlock has the initial Pumking sweetness but then settles into roasty notes so it's much more diverse. Take all of that as you will.
