When you’re talking beer and you say “stout,” some things come immediately to mind, most notably the words “dark” and “roasty.” When you say “imperial stout,” however, you’ve just left the realm
Warlock is a jet-black, high-ABV spice beer. The rich cocoa flavors are well-balanced by the residual cinnamon and ginger notes, with complementary flavors of vanilla, nutmeg and clove.
The “double stout” in this beer’s name is not indicative of a strong beer. Actually, it’s quite low in gravity and makes a particularly good session pint. What the double means to me is that this beer literally has double the flavor of other low gravity stouts. East Kent Goldings hops lend a spicy character to the nose which blends in perfectly well with its rich, thick toasty body. The deep roast edges finish into a crisp dryness that ensures this beer’s utter drinkability. You better get this beer fast because it’s only seasonally available.
