New Beer Blog Southern Tier Warlock Imperial Stout (2014)


In this fall beer blog, we are going to get into another fall beer in this season of 2014.  The next is Southern Tier Warlock Imperial Pumpkin Stout. If you read my earlier beer blog posts, you know the history of this  New York craft brewery.  If you have not, please, read them to get to know Southern Tier Brewery.  Let us get into this pumpkin stout.

This fall seasonal has a jet black color with an off white color head.  The smell is pretty complex.  The aroma has a cinnamon to nutmeg notes with an almost chocolate ginger bread notes. The taste has a chocolate cinnamon to ginger bread notes with a chocolate nutmeg dry slight bitter finish for aftertaste.  It is a sipping beer.

Here is a description from the beer bottle:

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.

Master Of The Underworld

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.

Closing, I was pretty impressed with this brew.  I am not a fan at all of their Pumking.  I just feel it is too full of cinnamon and nutmeg.  There is really no balance with that pumpkin beer.  This stout part has kind of overpower the rest of the beer.  It has a little bit more of a balance than Pumking.  I love the combine of the chocolate and cinnamon to nutmeg notes.  This is a great beer and this fall seasonal beer releases have been great this year.  This one is at the top of the list.  This is a great beer and I might have another bottle before the end of the season.  Go get some!  Drink it!  Enjoy it!  Metal it!  \m/
