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.

Deep black body, large dark chocolaty brown head, spotty lacing. Nose is complex with bourbon, vanilla, oak, molasses, chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, and tobacco. Flavor is similarly deep...impressively so. An abundance of semi-sweet malts: chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, and molasses. And plenty of pleasant bourbon barrel note. Full bodied, smooth carbonation, slick on the tongue, surprisingly mellow heat. I was not expecting this to be this good.

22 oz bottle poured, to celebrate Bengals 2016 touchdown #3. 1 year of age on this bottle. Gio. Pours midnight black with no head to speak of. Huge Bourbon aroma with a maple constant. Flavor is a rich chocolate, strong oak, maple, and potent bourbon. Has a slight doughy element. Slightly smokey. Overall a fun imperial, but not too memorable.

Aromas of dark chocolate, toffee, raisins, plums, figs, dark fruits, cherries, aged malts, oak, and barrel wood. Pours black with a very thin foam and intense alcohol legs. Taste brings harsh charred malts, campfire ash, dark bitter chocolate, cacao nibs, aged dark malts, oak, maple syrup, slick malt syrup, slick molasses, caramel, nougat and leather. Finishes intensely boozy with massive bourbon and oak. Overall, a very complex and dark with tons of flavors. Very heavy on the booze.
