COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Vicious and viscous, this menacing brew pours opaque black with a creamy maduro-colored head. Its aroma offers seductive whiskey, chewy red wine, dark fruit and lavish tobacco. Berserker Imperial Stout invades your taste buds with in-your-face flavor. Weighing in at almost 13% alcohol by volume, Berserker is completely out-of-control. Give it a good fight.

Also labeled under the "Alaska’s Most Wanted" series.

Chocolate. Tobacco after taste. Tasted side by side with Son of Beserker. They are quite a bit different. Beserker is thicker, sweeter, and did I mention thicker? Both are really good. Tanner head. Thx AkAndy.

First beer since 02-JAN. Pours jet black with with brown head that leaves a ring at ghe edge of the glass. Aroma is smoke, black malt, bitter sweet chocolate, anise and blended whiskey. Aroma is simar with tobacco, and slight sherry and black strap molasses. Finish is nice with a touch of maple syrup, only down side is the body, just A little thin for this ABV. Otherwise this is a great beer.

Good body. Not heavy on hops. Good light head on pour. Alch label @ 12.7% so I'm going to watch Art of the Steal ready for a good movie �� ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle from Whole Foods, Lynnwood, WA
Pitch black like no other beer that I had in recent times, with brown thin head; it pours rather viscous. Nice aroma of dark rye bread, the bourbon cask too is evident, and some alcohol. Thick body, almost oily; the roasted malt and sugars are in perfect balance, there is a good amount of dark chocolate, a hint of spices, black pepper, tobacco, and more than a trace of liquorice; the alcohol gently warms the tongue, but given the ABV the feeling is moderate; the bourbon flavor is less evident than the aroma; if there is one thing I could change here, I would remove the light sourness from the dark malts.
Great sipper.

Bottle at home, thanks Andy! Pours a dark black, dark brown head, very syrupy consistency. Aroma is bourbon, lightly sweet, faint maple, faint oak and chocolate. Taste is fruity, chocolate, light bourbon, oak, faint vanilla, faint coffee, very faint maple syrup notes. Very good. Full bodied, thick and viscous. Slightly bitter, low to medium carbonation. Fantastic imperial stout.

Vestergaard (1293) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - NOV 14, 2015
Bottle thanks to Bursprak! Pours a pitch black with a nice, dense, dark brown head. Aroma has soy, syrup, bourbon, salty savory notes, cofee, roast, molasses, tobacco, chocolate, caramel and vanilla. Taste is really roasty with unfortunately hides some of the sweeter notes from the aroma. Still tastes great and with lots of nicely balanced bourbon notes. Sticky full body and average-low carbonation. Nice one!
