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.

Bottle 65 cl. Courtesy of daknole. Pours an opaque black with a neat light brown head. Hard roasted malt in the nose and quite some alcohol. Solid body, hard roasted malt, a little wood and a vague smoky note. Some hard roasted malts in the finish, but not overly bitter. A very well balanced Imperial Stout. Neat. 270310

22oz bottle. Pours black with a quickly dissipating brown head. Aroma is of dark fruit, roasted malt, chocolate, syrup, bourbon, and wood. Taste starts off very chocalately. Has a big bourbon character, with lots of wood. Backbone of roasted malt. There is also caramel, dark fruit, and some tobacco. Very thick, heavy mouthfeel. Has a very dry lingering chocolate taste. Very boozy, but easy to drink given how heavy it is. Gets even boozier as it warms. I definitely enjoyed this one.

22oz bomber- thanks to JCB for sharing! Whoa. Pours ink black- insanely dark with a small, deep brown head. Aroma is massive butterscotch, maple, dried meats, old world tar, molasses. Taste is smokey, roasty, bitter, black licorice, butterscotch. Very bitter aftertaste. Super full-bodied. Oily, coating mouthfeel. Just killed it!

Bottle trade with writerljberg. Thanks Luke! Color is jet black with a thick, beefy brown head. Nose is full of molasses, sweet tea, coffee, chocolate, and maybe some mild raisin. Flavor is huge with dark chocolate lined with malty molasses. Very lasting flavor with no dropoff in the finish. Smooth for 13%. This house makes good beer.

bottle thanks to zinister who shared it at the January RB tasting. Pours black with brown bubbles instead of head. Nose is of chocolate and roast malts. Taste is of chocolate candy and a bit medicinal. Mouthfeel is medium and dry.

Thanks to Levi for sharing this one. Unusual aroma of alcohol and beef jerky. Teriyaki in the flavor, with malt. Black beer, and even though I can smell the alcohol, there isn’t much of it in the flavor or the palate. Quite smooth.

22 fl oz bottle. Pours dark brown with a small tan head. Aroma is dark malty and light butterish. Roasted base. Sweet and dark malty flavoured. Dry and hard roasted towards coffeeish. Acidic and hard roasted finish.

(bottle shared by MatSciGuy, thanks!) Been wanting to try this one for awhile now. Pours a thick black with no head whatsoever. Aroma is pretty standard and unexpectedly low-key, with some chocolate, roasted malt, faint oak, and a lot of booze. The taste follows with some chocolate, smoke, charcoal, oak, and faint raisin. Mouthfeel is full and chewy, with chocolate pudding showing up in the finish. An alright beer, but it didn’t stand out like I would’ve expected it to.
