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.

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.

(Sample Date: 4/12/2010 Source:BrewEngineer) Bottle at Butters Slutfest. Chocolate with wood roast and molasses and a hint of vanilla. Black with small dark tan head lots of dark fruit then roast then wood then chocolate. Wow. Dry astringent finish with moderate bitterness. Fantastic.

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 !

Butters (4020) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - APR 12, 2010
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.

wavers1 (916) - 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.
