Bottle. Itís a thick black pour with a tan head. Still. Nice aroma with chocolate and dark fruits. Great flavor, really unique. Soft anise notes, milk/dark chocolate, and blackberry. A notable lack of bitterness, which is a good thing. Smooth, silky palate with medium body. Great beer.

Ernest (7323) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - SEP 10, 2015
Bottle (6.9%). Head is initially small, frothy, brown, mostly diminishing. Body is black (non-opaque, flashlight tested). Aroma is moderately malty (roasted grain, husks, cereal, wort), with a note of rubber. Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately acidic, moderately bitter, husky. Medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, lightly alcoholic. I honestly donít think Iíve ever had a good small beer (ditto for trying to steep tea leaves twice)...they always seem kinda weak and hollow and soulless, and that is the case here. Husky and dirty and somewhat raw (yup, even worty). Not good...a drain pour from a brewery that normally manages at least average quality, sometimes great, beer.

Damico (3144) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2015
Second runnings from a ridiculously huge and complex impy stout. Pours thick and dark black with a lighter colored beige head than the Berserker, still pretty as hell. Aroma is roasted malts, as expected but no maple syrup anymore. Body and flavors are lighter than Berserker as well, as I did them back to back. It is lightly sweet roasted malts on a decent creamy body.

mcberko (14411) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JUN 22, 2015
22 oz. bottle, pours black with a small beige head. Aroma brings out booze, oats and cocoa. Flavour is pretty simple, with cocoa, oats and loads of booze. Very simple. No where near as good as regular Berserker. Okay.

AirForceHops (6193) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 19, 2015
650ml bottle thanks going to SHIG on this one. Nice appearance, thin lasting head around the snifter. Aroma is moderate roast, dark chocolate, molasses and toffee.

Mouthfeel is nice and full for a stout under 7%. Ashy / dry and chalky texture. Flavor is spot on the aroma and feels bigger than the gravity. Very nice drinking.
