Notes & Commercial Description:

"Small" Imperial Stout. This is a malt-centric beer so hops are not the feature. This is "Son of Berserker" - second runnings, usually called "small beer", of Berserker Imperial Stout. So at 8% ABV, "small" is relative--literally, as this little guy is the son of a great beer. No oak aging. But taste iT. This beer is completely incredible.

This is surprisingly good! Incredible aroma with coffee and roasted malts. The taste is light, but the mouthfeel is sticky-sweet anise and cocoa-chocolate. This is an imperial stout through and through. But "only" 6.9%!

hadn't heard about this, but thus must've just hit town...grabbed a bottle earlier in the day, enjoyed from a midnight sun snifter. bottle was a black label with silver metallic writing that said SOB...look to the description to see it is son of a berserker brewed from the 2nd runnings of berserker.

a - deep, lush, black as sin...like all midnight sun stouts...oil. the head was a bit softer though with more of an off white instead of the deep tan brown one might expect.

s - nose is fairly char, but you definitely get the berserker. smells like an alaskan winter.

t/m/o - berserker lite. no barrel aging, and amp up the roast and amp up the char. soft...winter. light, almost porter-like. all the lush flavors of bersker but in a sessionable? format. good beer, but ill stick to berserker.
