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.

JulienHuxley (3016) - 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 (1155) - 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 (10576) - 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.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - OCT 18, 2013
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.

Amfo (18) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 17, 2013
On tap 10.17.2013. Nose is bourbon boozy with hints of chocolate and toffee. Pitch black with just a hint of of head. Hearty enough body to hold up to all the flavor, just a bit "chewy". Surprisingly not that hot for 12.7%. Big bourbon flavor. Complimented by dark chocolate, sweetness of toffee and vanilla. Some light spicing. Just a great brew. Big and yet balanced.

DrSilverworm (6305) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - OCT 17, 2013
22oz bottle, shared by alexsdad06. Pitch black color. Little light brown head. Awesome bigger body, with a nice chewy texture. Lighter, crisp carbonation. Big roasty chocolaty flavor, light coffee. Hint of dark fruit. Bigger bitter taste, light heat in the finish. Little sweet. Good, big imperial stout. Gets better as I go. Smoother, more velvety. Very enjoyable big imperial stout to sip on. Perfect amount of alcohol warmth, for me.

Smurf2055 (1399) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Pours black, minimal tan head. Smell sweet boozy licorice, toffee and vanilla. Taste super strong vanilla, very stick, caramel and molasses. Thick and complex, very rich. Heavy, but very good.

b3shine (5335) - Indiana, USA - OCT 10, 2013
Bomber to taster (shared by alexsdad06). Looks good; an opaque dark cola with thin beige head that steadily dissipates into lacing. Smells good too; dark malt, molasses, maple syrup, and mild bourbon. Tastes like it smells with a solid albeit slightly thin mouthfeel. Good beer!

CampesinoTino (757) - Seattle, Washington, USA - OCT 5, 2013
Bomber of 2013 Vintage. Motor oil pour with dark mocha foam. Strong notes of bittersweet chocolate, whiskey, dark sugars and maple syrup in the aroma. Taste starts with a heavy dose of dark chocolate, molasses and bourbon along with some black cherry, espresso, licorice and charred roasted malt in the finish. Mouthfeel is thick, syrupy and full-bodied with medium carbonation. Overall, a top notch Imperial Stout much enhanced by the barrel-aging.
