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.

Shared with friends this weekend. I remember saying that this one would be a good companion to a lumberjack’s breakfast. So engaging in the nose, brown sugar, molassas, maraschino cherries, chocalate, bacon grease, just so out of the ord. Viscous and layers of depth to this, oily on the back. light brown clouds and a dark brown, almost black appearance, and again, I say, eggs and Bacon on the side.

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

blklab2007 (2015) - Connecticut, USA - DEC 9, 2014
Bottle poured like motor oil with a dark brown color and no head at all. Aroma has huge malts, molasses, bourbon, and heat. Mouth feel is so heavy and thick with sugars and very low carbonation. Flavor gets so aggressive with the malts, heavy molasses, bourbon, bits of maple sap, and plenty of heat on the finish. This is so big it is chewy just lingering with so much sweetness.

Draft sampled at Torst with Brendan and Maggi. Pours a deep brownish black body with thick brown lacing. Aroma is chocolate, maple, sweet caramel candies and light oak. Mouthfeel is thick and luscious with notes of dark chocolate, caramel, butterscotch, maple, light oak, some red wine and light tobacco. This was drinking pretty nice!

Nice blend of flavors. Bourbon is integrated smoothly into rest of beer. Bursting with nice roastiness, dark fruit, and slight spicy bitterness. Don't really get much in the way of maple but there is enough going on here that it doesn't matter. Oily mouthfeel and a touch too much carbonation. Fun and good. Smooth for the abv.

This beer pours a beautiful black color with a reddish brown tinted head. Aroma of bourbon and molasses. It has a slightly sweet flavor and a tiny bite especially considering it is over twelve percent. One of my favorites for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours very thick looking black with a small beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, some bourbon and oak and light vanilla, molasses, chocolate, and some light dough. Flavor the same with a nice blend. Thick texture. A really good beer.

Bottle (22oz $16): Black with brown head. Smells of bourbon and chocolate. Tastes like roasted chocolate and bourbon. Finishes sweet but other flavors are to strong for me to taste maple.
