COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This exotic stout is a relative of Chocolate Sombrero, with the Mexican spices replaced by the flavors of chai tea: ginger, caramom, cinnamon and vanilla. Dear head banging craft beer drinkers, please remember, "Our love for you is like a truck... BERSERKER!"

Brewdog Shepherds Bush. Bottle share with Jackie, Simon and David. Opaque dark brown - black beer. Small pale tan head. A nose of potpourri and those nibbles you get waiting for your Indian restaurant takeaway. Palate is soft and airy with superfine carbonation. Smooth dark malts, little cream. Mild spicy floral flavours that follow the nose. Finishes light and soft. A pleasantly mellow spiced Impy that is also light on it’s toes. Nice.

Overall a really solid but really weird brew. Tons of ginger and cardamom in the nose and taste. Some vanilla and roast coffee coming through. Worth a purchase if you see it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle. Smallish tan head atop cola dark brown body. Aroma is moderately sweet, bittersweet chocolate, cinnamon/hot pepper, light roast, coffee. Taste is sweet, bittersweet chocolate, some vanilla, ginger, light roast, milk chocolate. Medium-full body, some stickiness. A bit too sweet for my tastes.

Excelente cerveza, cabeza color avellana, profundo color oscuro, aromas intenso a cacao, licor de cafe, como si mordieras un biscocho de chocolate envinado, sensacional paladar robusto de cuerpo, y gran sedosidad, muy recomendable.

IrishBoy (3803) - Bakersfield, California, USA - MAY 16, 2014
Bomber from Imbibe Wine. Nose is light chocolate,heavy ginger, cinnamon, and a hint of vanilla. Black with a medium, lightly lacing cinnamon tan head. Flavor is spicy, chocolatey, and a mild bitterness. Very spicy

Bottle, 22oz. It pours a small, dense, firm dark beige head over a next to black body. The aroma has lots of coffee escaping the glass at first, soon getting company by molasses, woody notes and a pleasant spiced touch which somehow leads my thoughs to cloves. Ginger too is pretty easy to spot. Some chocolate as well, but that’s more evident in the flavor. Spices, coffee and molasses are the dominating flavors, both bitterness and alcohol are subdued. It’s full bodied and soft on the palate, very low on warmth considering the ABV. Lasting sweet coffee, molasses and spice finish. A very tasteful one, with a clever use of spices, but I’d say a 12oz bottle would be sufficient. 140514

Cybercat (3198) - Georgia, USA - MAY 12, 2014
"Pours a deep sable with a thick, if not too persistent, chocolate-tan head. Roast malt aroma has an overtone of horehound plus notes of caramel and chocolate, plus a hint of yeast. Flavor has bold coffee, roast malt and semi-sweet chocolate notes with underpinnings of caramel and licorice, plus a hint of woody hops. Texture is viscous and smooth, though fizz leaves a bit to be desired. Go berserk in Bombay - or Atlanta, or Detroit, or Toronto, or wherever you are!"

Bottled. Pours dark brown with tan head. Ginger, cinnamon, spices. Chocolate finish. Intriguing.

jbruner (2136) - Athens, Georgia, USA - MAY 4, 2014
Pours an opaque black from the bottle with thin ring of lacy tan brown head that leaves light lace. Aroma has nice spicy notes with earthy tea and an underlying roasty chocolate. Taste follows, more on the curry spice and less of the chocolate, nice bitter coffee notes. The tea comes out more as it warms, was expecting a bit more, but not bad.

On tap at Joe Canals West Deptford.
Appearance: Pitch black body with very little head, just tan foamy bubbles.
Aroma: Ginger is huge with a dash of cinnamon and chai tea notes. Odd aroma, but not awful.
Taste: Ginger is big with some chocolate, vanilla and hints of cinnamon. Not as pungent with the ginger as in the aroma, but not very appealing.
Palate: Medium to full-bodied, little carbonation.
Overall: I get what they’re going for, but I couldn’t enjoy more than a sip or two. This is just too much.
