American Double / Imperial Stout |  12.70% ABV

Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
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. Berserker Imperial Stout was aged in both red wine and whiskey barrels.

Original release of Berserker was at 10.4%, subsequent vintages have gone upwards of 12.7%. When reviewing, please list beer vintage and that vintage's specific ABV.

12.7% ABV - not sure the vintage but probably recent (2014)
One of the most beautiful pours I have ever seen, black as the darkest night, relatively no head - just a slight red foams at the very top.
Smell is not strong, sweet whiskey notes are there but the brew is so dark and covered you know all the flavors are inside.
Taste is awesome, super viscous, just like the label says, you could pour this over pancakes
Feel is even better, similar to BCBS, the molasses is perfect
Overall this is a fantastic beer, I wish I had more than just one.
