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.

Hopped_Silly (418) - California, USA - NOV 8, 2013
Serious stuff. Straight coffee, chocolate, vanilla cream and bourbon on the nose and palate. Rich, creamy, full bodied goodness. Very balanced. High alcohol is present, though nearly hidden by intense flavors. Flavors linger for minutes. Awesome stuff. --- tasted while on a long journey to understand the world around me...

Prufrockstar (959) - Seattle, Washington, USA - NOV 7, 2013
Bottle, 2013. appearance: Motor oil, viscous legs, no head, deep and dark (not black); aroma/taste: brown sugar, molasses, oak (like, wood); syrup? Fudge. Cardboard oxidation. Pretty sweet, muted roasty finish. Almost buttery. palate: Slick, thick, full body, soft carb; only slightly boozy. Overall: good and decadent; do I taste rye? Definitely not a favorite, though.

Pours black in the glass. Wonderful coffee and cocoa liqueur aroma. Flavor is just like the aroma, coffee, cream, cocoa liqueur. Overall, very awesome and very tasty. Thanks as always to BarZigKin for his generosity.

Full bodied. Medium carbonation. Slightly winey. Rich and luscious. Sweet without being cloying. Vinous. Really complex. Loved it.

JulienHuxley (3076) - Hilversum, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2013
Bottle. Opaque black with nice brown foam. Aroma is chocolaty, boozy, light spiciness, lots of winey notes, hint of maple. Taste of red wine, dark boozy fruits and a really roasty finish. Palate is rich without being cloying, good carb, easy sipper, very good.

mikedR (1214) - Gilbert, Arizona, USA - OCT 24, 2013
Exquisite Big Beer. Viscous roasted malt base. Impeccably balanced sweetness, presumably from the maple syrup and molasses. ABV of 12.7% is just barely perceptible. Strong bourbon infusion, perhaps a hair too much. A- ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tmoney99 (10660) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 19, 2013
Bottle shared by alexsdad06. Poured a black color with an average frothy brown head that lasted with good lacing. Moderate to heavy toasted chocolate, caramel, and alcohol aroma. Medium to heavy bourbon sweet toasted dark chocolate malt flavor with a medium to heavy dark sweet and small alcohol bite finish of moderate to long duration. Medium to abundant body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.

Black with beige head. Aroma is barrel with strong whisky note. Very malty flavor, fruit, Cape red, and malt and more malt. Alcohol burn is cancelled by a malty finish.
