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 "Alaskaís Most Wanted" series.

chinchill (4205) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 2, 2016
Large shared bottle. Fine looking beer that looks, and is, quite thick. Essentially black and opaque body with a decent head. Strong, rich flavor. Very full body, but not as viscous as the CCB Hunaphu I had just minutes before.

UPDATED: JUN 8, 2016 Bottle from 2012 (rating from memory). Shared with Herr Angstmann. Best at cellar temperature, so a bit colder than room temp, but I guess thatís true with most good beers. Pours thick motor oily black deliciousness. Molasses, tobacco, dulce de leche, coffee, dark chocolate and more. Alcohol is insanely well hidden considering the 13%. At the time my favorite imperial stout to date, and a few years later it is still up there. I canít wait to try this again (if I ever get the chance). Finally had it again -- really good but didnít quite live up to the memory, I must have romatacized it a little bit. An amazing beer but a bit abrasive with the tobacco taste and as a result the mouthfeel suffers a little bit.

very dark brown pour. chocolate fluff head. aroma raisins port, maple, brown sugar, milk caramel. Tastes sweet silage, oats, hay, char, iron. Great balance between sweet syrupy mouthfeel with touch of wine like dry. alcohol stands out on itís own, but is smooth and warm.

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.

Macegan75 (816) - Phoenixville, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 16, 2016
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.
