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.

Cavie (4042) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - DEC 21, 2009
Bottle courtesy of thirdeye11. Very dark pour. Black color but very little head. Smells of roasted malts and oak flavoring. Taste has woody notes with a slight edge of whisky. Roasted finish.

ucusty (2691) - raleigh, North Carolina, USA - DEC 14, 2009
Rating 1900. Thanks to UncleJedi for sharing! Thick inky black pour with a frothy beige head and drippy lace. Aroma is dominated by molasses, oak and coffee. Sweet upfront with hints molasses, oak, vanilla and chocolate. Finish is dry with hints of maple syrup and dark fruit

boFNjackson (4191) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 13, 2009
Bottle (thanks to Angeloregon for sharing)... Poured black with a thin -- almost little-to-none -- brown head. Aroma of vanilla and roasted, toasted grains and almost as extreme as a little bit of cheese and greasy meat. Smooth palate, lightly carbonated that hugged my tongue and allowed for easy quaffing. Oaky, vanilla and subtly smoked with that "lavish tobacco" (as described on the bottle) base coming through. Insanely boozy with a sweet chocolate and creme brulee-like finish.

alagnak (467) - Littleton, Colorado, USA - DEC 3, 2009
Bottle from bvc that was a nice "celebrator glass" in an Eastern Colorado pheasant field. Deep dark woodiness in the nose, also bourbon and plums, just a light bitterness. Taste is earthy bittersweet molasses to start, with a roasted meat and black pepper jerky thing (in a good way) as it warms a bit. Great toasty bitterness to finish and scary drinkable for nearly 13% abv. Thanks, Brandon. Really nice one.

luttonm (3266) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 30, 2009
Courtesy Trevor211. Tasty, upper limit thickness. Darkest pour with bubbly thick head. Creamy chocolate, cream, lactic. Milkshake like up front. Ends stiff, light coffee. No bourbon at all. Molasses, rich but not entirely lux. well rounded for a big beer.

riversideAK (5738) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - NOV 26, 2009
Dark fruit, figs, bourbon, cacao, red wine barrel notes on the nose. Black, creamy, and oily appearance. Dark brown head. Figs, dark fruit, chocolate, molasses, bourbon, and light red wine notes make up the flavor profile. Extremely complex and giant beer. Vanilla and brown sugar show up as well. Soft but sharp carbonation. Lingering dry roasted bitterness and a hint of barrel and alcohol in the finish. Solid.

MrBendo (1064) - Swedesboro, New Jersey, USA - NOV 17, 2009
Pours near black with a small head. Aroma of molasses, roasted malt, chocolate, dark fruits, licorice and wood. Syrupy sweet and somewhat boozy. But it’s complex and roasty and oh so good as a sipper.
