4.2 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from deliriumfest on BA. Shared at my 2nd annual birthday celebration beer fest.
Black with a small fading dark brown head. The head is damned dark on this one. Leaves a murky black liquid after it’s gone. This one is thick and has some legs on it.
Aroma is molasses, roast, anise, and chocolate. Some oak barrel and bourbon poke through. This one lets you know from the get-go that it’s not going to mess around.
Flavor is just crazy. Bourbon and oak, dark chocolate, red wine, lots of molasses, maple syrup, dark fruit, tobacco, and anise all noticeable. So much going on here. A little sweet with a very mild tart note that I’m assuming came from the wine barrels. This is intense and very complex.
Full body with low carbonation. A little boozy and syrupy.
Overall, this is great, but it’s hard to drink a lot of it. This one will really kill you. Make sure you open this with enough people to share it.

4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bottle shared by JCB. Thanks, Jason. I think this was aged about 2 years. Pours thick as dark as night... every bit as oily as one might expect from a nearly 13% beer called "Berserker." Nose of molasses, vanilla, mild wood, and tobacco. Even some mild smoke. I love the earthier qualities of this beer as opposed to the typical chocolate/coffee/roast flavors of many imperial stouts. Quite good.

22oz bottle shared by glouglou
Appearance : Dark black, small creamy head.
Aroma : Mellow roasted malt with what smells like oatmeal. Some resinous hops. Feels oily.
Taste : Very mellow roasted malt with some bitterness. Resinous hops. Finish nice roasted malt with some hops. Some molasses.
Overall : Very well balanced, alcohol well hidden. One of the best stouts I’ve had. Made me think of the Olde Rabbit Foot. Same balance and molasses sweetness. Awesome beer. Thanks Dany !

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Sampled at the Slutfest. Last beer of the night, and damn, what a finish. Pours black with dark brown head ring. Definitely woody. The red wine quality, I assume comes from the barrel, as well as the chocolately bourbon. Very nice.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
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.
