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.

Poured an opaque black color with a medium sized, tan head, that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of vanilla, dried dark fruits, roasted malts, chocolate, and some alcohol as well. Taste of more vanilla, bourbon, chocolate, roasted malts, with smoke, and moderate alcohol as well. Chalky, creamy smooth mouthfeel, thanks Steve!

This is a jet black pour with a brown head. The flavor is complex: bittersweet chocolate, anise, vanilla, and whiskey, it’s pretty darn nice.

Bottle. 2005 vintage. Pitch black with a mocha-brown small head. Leafy aroma including some caramel, toffee, coffee, and vegetal doughiness. Chewy, viscous flavour - lots of coffee, some alcohol, and plenty of hop stickiness. Quite sweet though balanced in many respects.

Thanks Puzzl for sharing this one at this CL RB gathering. Black in color with a medium to dark brown head. Aroma jumps out at you, tons of chocolate, moderate roast, caramel, molasses. Taste is also, alot of chocolate, roast, caramel, with a very full thick body, bittersweet. Finishes roasty and bitter. Excellent beer.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - MAY 6, 2007
Bottle: Thanks puzzl (Andy) for this beauty:Huge beer.Pours an opaque black with a thick cloying body and a deep brown head. The aroma has evident wood, boozeyness, peat, black licorice/anisette. The flavor has a huge malt profile with lots of dark chocolate, boozy notes, lots of licorice-like saltyness. The finish leans more toward a rich roastyness with coffee characteristics and some hop resins are evident. A big, rich and somewhat dry Imperial Stout.

[270-20070413] 22floz (c/o HogTownHarry, w/ him, blankboy, jerc, mds, tupalev). Marshmallow apple banana sauce with a caramel toasted sugar delay -- like a caramel-drizzled banana sundae special! Dark black brown with a medium-lasting creamy tan head. Very sweet malted roasty sugar-coated banana, very noticeable alcohol, nice aftertaste. Full body, quite smooth. Couldn’t have a lot but wow it’s gooood, and boozy smooth.

Bottle (650ml) shared with HogTownHarry, jerc, mabel, mds & tupalev -- courtesy of HogTownHarry. Vintage 2005. Pours a very dark ruby-brown with an average size light-brown head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, brown sugar and alcohol -- surprisingly sweet. Flavour of lightly roasted malt, hops, a hint of chocolate, dark fruit and some alcohol -- a little sweet too, like tupalev below, it kind of reminds me of a stronger Baltic Porter. Nice medium to full body. Well done, very enjoyable.

Bottle shared with Blankboy, Hogtown Harry, Jerc, Mds, and Mabel, Harry’s bottle. Strong sweet baltic porter like aroma - sweet and very nice. Pitch black, no head. Taste is decadent: silky body, sweet malt, sharp hops and lots of alcohol. Like a very strong baltic porter. A treat.
