Southern Tier - Warlock Imperial Pumpkin Stout

The pumpkin beers are reaching the local shelves, so it's time to stock up the Cemetery fridge and roll out the infamous "Drunken Jackos" rating system for 2014!

First up is Southern Tier's Warlock Imperial Pumpkin Stout.

This beer is no joke. It poured a thick, rich black with a nice brown head. And at 8.6% ABV, it gave just enough kick. This beer started with a really nice aroma of spicy pumpkin and nutmeg. It was almost reminiscent of their Pumking Ale. The real difference was in the taste. This beer had a rich, dry roasted malt flavor with a dash of coffee. There was a slight hint of pumpkin, but the standard stout malt was definitely the predominant flavor.

I really liked this beer and it only took one glass to get me feeling all toasty inside. I'm definitely going to pick up another bottle or two and save them for the colder days of fall. This one would be perfect for a chilly fall evening by a fire, and because of that, Southern Tier Warlock Imperial Pumpkin Stout gets 3.5 out of 5 Drunken Jackos!
