Southern Tier Warlock Imperial Stout with Pumpkins


Southern Tier Warlock Imperial Pumpkin Stout. 8.6% ABV.
A left over from StoutFest Volume six. I have to take notes on this one quickly before it's gone.



Dark as sin, this one, under a vast, thick, creamy-toned head. Looks fantastic.

Aroma: there's pumpkin here, but it's a little hard to find. At first. Give it time and it starts to follow, though still held back a bit but other stout-y aromatics, like a complementary helping of cocoa and coffee. Pumpkin spice notes are here, as well.



Now, to drink. Full-bodied, plump and thick in the mouth, with the pumpkin flavor fairly spilling all over now. End dryly with a slightly bitter touch in the finish. Tasty blend of the stout and the pumpkin. Sweetness is kept at bay just by a hair, a delicious tango between scrumptious flavors.

Do I like this? Yes, I do.
