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.

Koelschtrinker (16443) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - FEB 18, 2015
Vanille und Kaffee im weichen Antrunk, vollmundig, massiv malzig. Die Bourbonnoten sind gegen das massive Malz nur nebensächlich, insgesamt daher rund. Weiterhin Kaffee, geringe Alkoholigkeit. Etwas trocken zum Ende, Kakao. 10/11/8/11/9/11

Bottle in my hotel room. Pours opaque black with a small, fizzy brown head, medium retention with spare lacing. Aroma is roast and chocolate malt, figs, prunes, maple syrup, oak notes, earthy and spicy hops with light bourbon notes. Flavor is sweet and rich dark malt and fruits, dark chocolate, lightly bitter, light earthy hops and bitterness, bourbon notes, faint maple syrup and a sweet finish. Full body and medium carbonation. A substantial beer and a bit sweet for my liking.

Clownoisseur (418) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - FEB 11, 2015
Bottle pours a dark brown, copper hues. Small tan head fades to a ring. Aromas of dark berries, molasses, syrup, oak and vanilla. Taste is pretty sweet upfront with loads of molasses and syrup....almost a bit much before the oak, bourbon and vanilla come in...nice mellow alcohol warmth into the finish. Solid stuff.

Pliny_SR (42) - California, USA - FEB 5, 2015
Draft @ City Beer Store on 2/3/15. Pours black as night with minimal brown head and some lacing. Aroma is bourbon, molasses, vanilla, chocolate, coffee, roasted malt, and dark fruit. Full bodied beer, but smooth as velvet. Palate is a luscious blend of molasses, bourbon, roasted malt, with hints of vanilla, chocolate, coffee and dark fruits. This beer should be enjoyed often, but slowly and in small quantities. The alcohol content is fairly hight, but well hidden in the flavor palate.

maxwelldeux (4325) - Snohomish, Washington, USA - JAN 31, 2015
Bottle. Pours a near-black color with a moderate darker brown head on there (with a fairly aggressive pour). Nose is quite roasty with some wood elements poking through along with dark fruit and hints of licorice. Taste is smooth and chocolatey with some roasty and whiskey elements to it. Really interesting beer.

julesjis (256) - Oregon, USA - JAN 13, 2015
Poured from a 22. Aroma is chocolatey and boozy. Aroma is boozy with a sweet-ish chocolate finish. The flavor is a bit too boozy for me but the chocolatey finish is pretty great!

Alphadelic (2134) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 1, 2015
The most absurdly thick beer I have ever poured. The nose is rich and chocolatey with a tiny twinge of metal. In the mouth it leans almost in a too-rare meat direction but saves itself with some nice brandy and chocolate flavor. Not as heavy as it looks. Very good, not perfect.

Warped_Silver (124) - Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 10, 2014
Pours jet black and thick as motor oil. Thin brown head. Aroma of raisin, bourbon, vanilla, coffee, bitter chocolate. Mouthfeel is thick and viscous - yum! Taste is booze and raisin upfront finishes bitter chocolate and EtOH dryness. Overall very good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
