Pretty close to black...on 2nd runnings? Wow. Milk chocolate, and Malted milk aroma. Sweet, malted milk, touch of chocolate and sweet finish.

Tap at Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours black with a creamy dark tan head. Aroma seems chocolate and dark treacle. Med + body. Flavor is some chocolate and some dark malt that might have treacle (or dark fruit with something sweet?) Really tasty.

Draught @ TÝrst, Brooklyn, NY
Pours black with a tan head. Aroma has notes of roasted malt, chocolate, caramel, coffee, cocoa and hint of cooked vegetables. Taste is medium sweet and light to medium bitter with a long roasted, chocolate, coffee, caramel and cocoa. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft.

mcberko (9333) - 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.

[2/15/15] Draught at City Beer in San Francisco. As Midnight Sun Son Of A Berserker. Black with a brown head. Aroma of roast and coffee. Bittersweet roasty flavor with coffee and some dark chocolate. Medium to full-bodied.

marcus (7551) - Sacramento, California, USA - NOV 7, 2014
On tap at Capitol Beer & Tap Room. Pours Dark brown with a rich tan head and a chocolate aroma. There is a smooth chocolate and dark molasses flavor with a dry finish. Very tasty, especially for a "small" beer.

slowrunner77 (7088) - Reno, Nevada, USA - NOV 12, 2014
Nice. Nitro at Capitol Tap Room. Still has the chocolate and molasses and light barrel going on. Less sweet and obviously less body and abv, but VERY nice for a small beer. Super smooth and tasty.

after4ever (6687) - Brier, Washington, USA - MAY 14, 2015
Draft at Uber for the Midnight Sun cigar pairing event. Pours jet black with a dense and creamy dark tan head of mousse that settles to nice creamy suds. Big roasty nose, lots of dark chocolate, almost a peppery rye note, toasty crusts of black bread. Creamy thick heavy body. In no way does this begin to suggest a small beer or second runnings at all. Itís a big bad glass of suds all on its own. Lots of dark chocolate, toasty black bread crusts, and an even more pronounced rye-like note on the mid palate. Complex and interesting. Long earthy toasty finish. Worth many repeats.

Growler to oversized snifter (thanks mikem409). Looks good; pitch black with thin white lacing. Smells good too; roasty and molasses. Tastes solid; much like it smells, but a bit thin. Average on the palate. Good.
