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.

wavers1 (909) - Notown, California, USA - APR 3, 2010
bottle courtesy of shawn213, thanks! pours an insane opaque black with a very, very dense and very dark brown head, which is unfortunately short lived. aroma has plenty of subtle heat, which combined with the swwetness and oak almost smells like a bourbon profile in it. the taste is great, very hearty and dense. heavy smoke, burnt malts and chocolately notes are balanced by the sweet, vanilla, maple and molasses notes throughout. great palate and after taste. super, super full body, very creamy, not too dry, not too sweet. great stuff, the heat is perfectly acceptable in this monstrosity, the name is very fitting.

JCB (3999) - Durham, North Carolina, USA - MAR 29, 2010
22oz from RiversideAK - thanks, Alex! Super oily pour but somehow graceful, even elegant looking. Deep and ominous black but more like silk than the void. Huge nose of molasses and roasted malts, absolutely inviting. Super abundant and full mouthfeel, very smooth and creamy, with just a hint of dry and chalky qualities in the pleasant finish. Taste is superb, nothing too over the top about the roasts. In fact, chocolate, butterscotch, and a bit of smoke come through as it lingers. And unbelievably drinkable given the ABV. Outstanding.

Bottle. Pitch black with a creamy brown head. The aroma is roast, cocoa, bourbon, tobacco and soy. The flavour is whisky, roast, light peat, chocolate and caramel. Creamy palate. This great beer ends up with a vinous roasty finish. Lovely.

Awesome bottle thanks to Rick with a major assist by Eric. Pours a picture of beauty; pure oil can blackness, a small dark brown head. The aroma is sweet cocoa, rich molasses, smoke. The taste is complex; peat, light barrel, tobacco for sure, rich toffee, light fruit, bitter coffee, massive licorice and molasses. A bit too much molasses and maple syrup for me, but very well made and a tasty treat. I’d like to try it again.
