Sloth is the avoidance of physical or spiritual work. SLOTH Belgian-style Imperial Stout is deliberately dark as hell. The pour is slow and sluggish. Its head is menacing, becoming torn and tattered Belgian lace on the sides of the glass as you cautiously consume this brew—sip by insidious sip. The aroma is sweet from heavy malt and big alcohol with notes of vanilla, coconut and whiskey from the oak. The depth & breadth of roasted malt flavors loiters on the palate while the robust finish lingers, well, forever. SLOTH...Just add couch.

Bomber from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours very dark brn/blk with a slight dark tan head. Aroma is dark chocolaty treacle with bourbon/vanilla. Whiskey even. It is full + bodied. Flavor is really dark treacle, bourbon in significant amount, alcohol/whiskey to be included, and maybe a slight touch of smoke. The flavors are complex and amazing. It is extremely tasty. Incredible.

RRistow12 (720) - Lewis Center, Ohio, USA - OCT 8, 2016
Tasted from bottle. Pours black with thick khaki head. Aroma is bourbon, cocoa, caramel. Taste is mildly bitter with moderate sweetness. Flavors of bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits, caramel, toffee. Really don't get much if any of the Belgian yeast notes. Overall very well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Big vanilla whiskey coconut treacle marshamallow. Almost all about the barrel, but as the abv is under control - that’s not a bad thing. Smooth, warming - a treat.

Alengrin (4594) - BELGIUM - JUN 28, 2016
Bottle shared by Trevor at Belgium Chimipalooza, cheers. ’Belgian style imperial stout’ from Alaska. Lightly lacing, pale brownish beige, creamy head over a black beer with chestnut edges. Aroma of chocolate sauce, baked banana, fig, coffee liqueur and slight coffee grounds, vanilla, dates, whisky, raisin, leather. Sweet onset, some banana, raisin, date but balanced with a beefy umami accent and a softly sourish undercurrent, softish carbo, thick, oily and slick caramelly malt body quickly turning deeply chocolatey, some yeasty spiciness here and there, toasted bittering ending along with peppery hops and warming, bourbon-like alcohol. Along the same lines as Weyerbacher’s Tiny but ’cleaner’ and more chocolatey.
