Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.70%

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.

look: 4.5 | smell: 4.75 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4.5

Great stout (and if you can get it on nitro even better) from Midnight Sun. Full body with a silky feel. This his a dark pouring stout that has a pillow head. The smell of chocolate is slight. The taste is chocolate, maple syrup and bourbon with slight smoke and a roasted nutty feel. A very strong stout at 12.7 it is s defiantly a share if drinking from the big bottle. Best had from the tap at Midnight Sun!
