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.

Aroma is dark chocolate malt, sweet port and molasses. Taste follows suit. Very much port and sugars. Finishes hoppy and somewhat roasted coffee and chocolate. Very solid and not over the top.

Sampled during Manhattan Blind IS Tasting: Very nice flavor and aroma, nice and smooth. Not syrupy but easy to drink. I wish I had more of this one to really get the full effect.

Dark black beer. Rich sweet dark malty aroma. Chocolate, cocoa, leather and rich chewy malts. Earthy and cherry fruitiness. Lovely rich brew.

Bottle. Aroma of dark fruit, chocolate and nuts. The palate is actually a little thin. The flavor is nice, mostly bitter chocolate, roasted malt and a crisp finish.

Shared with my brother who brought this back from a recent trip to Alaska. Pours an oily black with a thick brown head that proves very durable. Dark chocolate and rich roasted coffee aroma with some subtle woody notes. Full body, light carbonation, a little oiliness, and an enjoyable chewiness combine in a great mouthfeel. Nicely balanced between the dark maltiness and a softly bitter dry finish. The oak aging isn’t a major statement, but rather a subtlety that adds to the complexity. Too bad this doesn’t make it down to the lower 48 on a commercial basis. Because of that, it’s flying pretty much under the radar.

2007 Vintage. Was a really wonderful Imperial Stout my only complaint about that beer was that it smelled very alcoholic. Probably needs to sit for a year or two to smooth that out. Anyway, I really enjoyed the mellow yet bold and full flavored body. Definately a nice brew.

2007 Bomber from puzzl! Nose of chocolate, light vanilla from the BAing, and the woodiest nose of any BA beer I have had; opaque black, brown edges, with a beautiful medium cinnamon-tan head; flavor of chocolate, oak, light coffee and bready notes, Alcohol well covered with a bit of hop bitterness for the finish.

Much thanks to hopdog for sharing this beauty. 2007 version... Appears black with caramel brown edges and a dark tan head. Scattered streaks of lacing are left around the glass. Smell is of raisins, cocoa, vanilla, mocha, and oak. Taste is of the mentioned aromas with a peanut flavor that is also standing out in the complex flavors. Mouthfeel is smooth, chewy, raisiny, bourbony, and outright beautiful. This one is a winner. Seek it out.
