BrewDad (5003) - Olympia, Washington, USA - APR 1, 2012
Dark black in color, clear with a thin head. Huge dark roast malt and light hops aroma. Nice flavor and smooth taste. This comes in at a light 8% but it is terrific. Being a second run this was a very tasty warm brew,

Had this on tap at Midnight Sun about a year ago and forgot to rate it. Colour... essentially black with a thin tan head. Nose...dark chocolate, anise and vanillin. Palate...whoa! This is one velvety beer! Thick and creamy with plenty of roasty goodness, burnt caramel, wet earth, anise extract, maduro cigar and plenty of booze on the finish, esp. for only 8% ABV. This is a small beer?? Iíd say that this is a GIANT among small beers!

On tap at the brewery. I saw Berker was on and got really excited, until I read more closely... Pours a roasted black color with a hearty brown head. Loaded with soy sauce -- almost overwhelmingly so -- along with notes of maple and dark fruit in the aroma and flavor.

Draft at Midnight Sun. Pours black with a thick tan head. Aroma of roasted malts and some tart cherry notes. Flavor is mostly roasted malts with some lactic notes and an ever-so-slight tartness. Pretty good for second runnings.

growler to go from the brewery. Black with big tan/brown head. Full body and very smooth flavor with lots of roast malt and milk chocolate. Only a hint of bitterness in the finish. Seems a little sweeter than the original berserker. They should be bottling this stuff.

SuzyGreenberg (1603) - Seattle, Washington, USA - FEB 19, 2010
Draft @ Midnight Sun; dense black with thick tan head along the edges; creamy chocolate, vanilla, creamy nuts; light, smooth and roasty; creamy mouthfeel and light flavor profile, yet has a depth to it usually not found in lower ABV stouts; light chocolate and coffee with bone dry nutty finish; almost chewy; good stuff

UPDATED: MAY 11, 2009 On tap @ the brewery. This is the second running from the new 2009 Berserker that should be coming out soon (itís on oak right now Apr09). From what the guy at the brewery said the new 2009 Berserker is 14% abv. Aroma is sweet roasted malt with chocolate, caramel. Deep brown with a small tan head. The flavor is sweet with just a slight bitterness. Velvety smooth, with a perfectly mild carbonation. Anywhere else this would be a supreme Imperial Stout, but for the excellent brewers at MS this is just a second running of what should turn out to be an epic Berserker Imperial Stout.

The MS brewery had this on tap a couple months back in December and January. It was the second runnings of 2008 Berserker and then some...Pours black with a light brown head. Good roasty malt aroma with chocolate and molasses. Medium body with the MS house chewy yeastiness. Rich, roasty flavors at first with dry blackened malts, then a milky semi sweet chocolate taste to finish. Another great stout from these guys.
