Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: BeerAdvocate on 12-13-2005

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.

Got complexity?

Why, yes...yes, it does.

Roasted malt, maple syrup, Raisinettes™, 60% cacao, merlot/cabernet, bourbon, over-ripe black cherries, toasted coconut, figs, dates, prunes, plums, kiwis, mandarin oranges, tangerines,persimmons, kumquats, brandy, vanilla, sandalwood/cedar shavings, cinnamon, caramel, toffee, coffee, marmalade, brown sugar, strawberries, molasses, leather, tobacco, grape skins,fudge, char, wet earth, ash, honey, licorice, mocha, sweet vermouth, and smoke are all discernible in this brazen masterpiece.

My absolute favorit RIS (and overall beer of any style, for that matter).
