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

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.

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.

BrewDad (5004) - 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,

Damn, thatís a HUUUGE small beer! Draft at the brewery. Black. Itís freaking black. Still. Nice clean (weird descriptor but it is) 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.

On tap at the source... Pours a silky solid stout black hue, pretty thorough throughout and topped with a creamy khaki head... Light roast and cocoa aroma, slight tints of yeastiness. Black licorice. Pretty straightforward ... Milky, smooth chocolate and mild roast flavors upfront. Light bitterness in the backend. Touch of chalk and light smoke coming through late and through the finish. A touch of darken fruitiness also surfaces.

TimE (3261) - Tokyo, JAPAN - DEC 20, 2013
Pitch black color, dark brown color. Tons of bourbon, molasses, maple syrup. The mouth is very full, sweet, rich maple, molasses, truffles, bourbon, tounge numbing, dark fruit in te mouth. Really warming finish, with lingering truffles, molasses and maple finish. Big beer, very complex.

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.
