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.

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.

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

brenn79 (1725) - Idaho, USA - MAR 27, 2010
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.
