Southern Tier Warlock Review

Warlock is prime contentment. It’s listening to the raw sounds of a street performer playing the saxophone. It’s a pumpkin beer without the cloyingly sweet flavors no one really liked in the first place. There’s a Cheerios smell as well as taste, with big bitter notes to round it out. Toasted malt plays the lead in both color of the beer, aroma (along with chocolate), and taste. There's some heavily lifting done by the high alcohol percentage, and there's a present but not overwhelming flavor of pumpkin spices like nutmeg and cinnamon. I don’t know how Warlock hasn’t cast a spell and made all of Southern Tier’s other pumpkin beers disappear yet.
