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.

2008 vintage bottle, old label, pours dark brown and black, with small tan head, light lace, smell of oak barrels, whiskey , chocolate and coffee, low carbonation, taste is whiskey and oak, as beer warms get more chocolate, coffee and more of oak not to much. Do get sweetness on some sips and if you let it sit in mouth red wine flavor with whiskey, very smooth, perfect beer start to finish!!!

Dr_MedievAle (201) - Alabama, USA - JUL 9, 2016
Smells of malted milk balls (Whoppers) and slightly of sour milk. Tastes like it smells. Mouthfeel is thin to oily with a medium body. Maybe this bottle went bad or was somehow infected, because I’d heard praise of this beer that does not comport with my experience.

chinchill (4204) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 2, 2016
Large shared bottle. Fine looking beer that looks, and is, quite thick. Essentially black and opaque body with a decent head. Strong, rich flavor. Very full body, but not as viscous as the CCB Hunaphu I had just minutes before.
