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.

Frothy charred expresso/brown head. Aroma is earthy faded hops, deep plum/raisin, licorice, light tobacco, oak, and underlying sweet caramel. Taste follows the aroma with tobacco, raisin/date, licorice, molasses, and a smooth near barley wine finish. Impressive, dessert-like beer.

Pours black with maroon hues and a foamy tan head, with decent head retention. The nose is oaky bourbon, Dark fruit,molasses and roasted malts. The taste is vanilla,Oak, molasses and bourbon with a light bitter coffee finish. This is quite a complex Stout, Delicious. Creamy medium/full body. I need to start getting others from this Brewery.

Bottle. An intriguing pour -- black as the darkest night, as you’d expect. The head is surprisingly muted, but what there is is just as surprisingly dark and near-black itself. The aroma is pure sexual chocolate, making my mouth water. This drinks with an incredible array of powerful flavors, all mingled together ... licorice, whiskey, baking chocolate, prunes top my list. I have a feeling this will have me feeling warm and cozy in no time. Awesome. (#4071, 2/6/2011)

Thanks to Kan for sharing with us! A - Pours black, mocha head, some nice lacing and retention left behind after it all settled down. A very nice-looking RIS we have here. S - Chocolate, both dark and milk, slight dark fruit, oak, burnt sugars, some alcohol booze in there too and at 10.4%, it’s going to be quite hard to completely hide. T - Very similar to the nose. Chocolate, oak, caramel, burnt sugars, some booze. A good amount of complexity between the oak, sweetness, and alcohol notes. Very solid. M - Full bodied, rich, smooth, light carbonation, creamy yet dry finish. D - One glass was enough for me. A very big RIS monster. I have been looking forward to trying this and wasn’t disappointed after all was said and done. I continue to be very impressed with most MS offerings, this included.

Bottle thanks to MikeTD. Pours inky black with a tan head. Thickly coats the glass when swirled. Aromas of brown sugar, bourbon, chewy, dark fruits, wine, and caramel. Flavors of raisins, dark fruits, vinous, boozy, chewy. Light bubbles. Tasty.

Slightly smoky, very roasty nose, just a touch of dark chocolate and dark fruit. The taste is moderately sweet, lightly bitter, with lots of milk chocolate, some coffee, some licorice and lots of raisins. It’s just a bit rough and unrefined.

22 oz. bottle, split with McBerko (thanks!) Pours the expected deep black with a tan head. Aroma is chocked full of fruitcake like potency; boozy raisins, molasses, caramel, slight cocoa and a hint of pepper. Taste is much the same but with a lush and tongue sticking thickness. Alcohol is fairly evident but not amiss. Finish is lingering and warm. Well done.

Bottle - thanks brewolf! Intensely dark brown pour with a short lived brown head. Rich aroma is thick with sweetness. Molasses and oak. The maple syrup is evident at first sip and again in the tail. Sweet. More molasses and this time vanilla. Some chocolate. Smooth barrel notes compliment it all. Drank great from cellar to room temp. Excellent.

22 oz. bottle, split with manuchampions, pours black with a tan head. Aroma of raisins, molasses and a little roasted malt. Flavour reveals a sort of raisin-bread upfront, with a touch of molasses / chocolate malt and oak, and booze. Thick, syrupy, and heavy mouthful. Delicious

22oz bomber, 2008 edition, and the label states oak whiskey casks (no red wine here), also a different label with their usual sun logo cartoon. I think I got this one from JW77--thanks John! Wow--black as black can be with a small oily deep tan head. Molasses, raisins, dark chocolate and roasted grain up front in the nose, some sweet whiskey and vanilla wood behind. Lastly some anise notes work their way in. Flavor definitely has a lot more roast, as well as a little more anise. Even less whiskey noted--actually can’t hardly pick up on any at all other than some dry old woody notes. The flavor just seems like a totally different beer. There’s some salty soy notes midway through, and it’s lost the molasses and most of the rich chocolate notes. Mainly it’s a salty roasty as hell impy in the flavor. Dry finish with bitterness at a 3, some alcohol noted. Huge thick slick body with scant carbonation. If the flavor kept up what the aroma had, this would’ve been a winner.
