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.

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.

Bottle @ Papsø. Tasted blind. Pours pitch black with a creamy brown head and lacings. Sweet and roasted nose with coffee and chocolate. Smooth and full bodied. Vinous and quite ashy with a woody note. Lovely coffee profile. Nice

22 oz. bottle- Pours pitch black with a perfect thick dark frothy tan head, lacing is mediocre, the aroma is coffee and bourbon. The flavor is outstanding, deep robust chocolate and coffee, mild Bourbon burn, and a sweet thick sweet syrupy flavor. This beer has an unmatched complexity that the other Midnight Sun beers were lacking. I didn’t think much of this brewery until this, one word-excellent.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 27, 2010
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!
