(Anchorage, AK) – Midnight Sun Brewing just released Berserker Bourbon Barrel-aged Imperial Stout at the brewery in Alaska. The beer hasn’t been shipped out to the market in two years though that will change soon.
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.
This version of Berserker Imperial Stout was aged in both red wine and whiskey barrels. The entire batch was brought back together before being packaged in kegs and 22-oz bottles.
A company rep posted on Beer Advocate in July that the beer would be shipped to the following markets: AK, So. Cal (and Bay Area), WA, OR and NYC. In 2010, only 22 oz. bottles were shipped out of the state though there is no word on whether other states will receive kegs this time around.
