COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Bottle shared by puzzl. Pours black with a ring of tan head. Aroma is milk chocolatey and roasted malts. Taste is similarly sweet chocolate. Very tasty stuff with a sticky mouthfeel and more chocolate in the finish. I felt sinful drinking this bad boy. Another winner from Midnight Sun.

Huge thanks to puzzl. Poured an opaque brown color with a thin tan head and tan legs. The aroma was of coffee and milk chocolate with a hint of ash. The flavor had a fair amount of milk chocolate. The roast was very smooth as was the mouthfeel. Medium to full bodied with a great warmth in the chest. No noticable taste or aroma of alcohol.

Ratman197 (9536) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - MAR 28, 2008
Bomber ( thanks to robertburns for sharing) poured a translucent black with a small lingering ring of brown foam. Aromas of frfuittiness, carmel, toffee, light roastiness and a hint of brown sugar. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of roastiness, fruitiness, milk chocolate and light vanilla with a smooth lingering semi sweet finish.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - MAR 21, 2008
Bottle thanks to timmcd64, sampled on 2/1/08: Pours an oily opaque with a dense, frothy, creamy brown head. Sweet dark caramel and chocolatey nose has some doughy bready notes and a touch of raisins and molasses. Body starts rich and caramely sweet with nice dark fruity complexity drying out somewhat toward a lingering bittersweet dark chocolate finish. Very rich and enjoyable and should age well. A nice imperial stout with a mild Belgian yeasty presence.

pours deep black with a dark brown fizzy head. smells heavily of roasted malts with some spice. taste starts thick and chocolatey, with a little coffee. the finish starts out with a little hop, then becomes a sweet toffee flavor

Stine (1488) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 8, 2008
UPDATED: MAR 9, 2008 Poured from a 22 oz. bottle, thanks to Tim. Slightly glassy when poured, and opaque black when sitting. Aroma brings a quiet and rich presentation of toasted vanilla, rock candy, chocolate milk, and sweetened coffee. Flavor gives some dark toffee, black pepper, whiskey; a bold chocolate and vegetal hop flavor of broccoli and steamed carrot. Tinny bourbon and molasses sweetness with black cherry skins; seeming quite acrid at first, but developing a burly citrus hop and malt sweetness. Palate if full and aggressive; pomegrantate tartness and some sweet alcohol of a rum extraction in the finish. Still a bit abrasive, but pleasant for the most part.

tyler_mn (1475) - SLP, Minnesota, USA - MAR 8, 2008
750ml bottle with a big thanks to stine. Big Impy aroma of roasted malt and charred vanilla bean. Light coffee aroma, some wet wood, dark chocolate and charred caramel. Pours a thick, dark brown, nearly black with a thick khaki head. Unique take on the Impy style for sure. There’s a different yeast component to this beer that’s not found in other US Impy’s. A slight tartness behind the chocolate, charred caramel, vanilla and roasted malt. Bordering on full bodied bodied with a little more carbonation than I prefer in my impy’s. A nice take on the style, though. Thanks Eben!

hellomynameis (874) - Mayer, Minnesota, USA - MAR 8, 2008
Dark black with a very large brown head. Nice aroma with a bit of chocolate and maybe a tad bit of coffee. Big palate, very chewy. Flavour is good with chocolate coffee, some astringent malts with a bit of pine hop.

   AROMA 8/10   APPEARANCE 4/5   TASTE 8/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 18/20
jsquire (3400) - St. Marys, Ohio, USA - MAR 8, 2008
Dark beer with an attactive bubble cascade out of the bottle. The cascade generated a foamy brown head that hung around in whisps and drifts. Nose of chocolate, coffee and cereal grains. Think mouthfeel. Tons of chocolate, coffee, dark fruit and a pleasan alcohol warmth. Really thick, chewy imperial stout.

ChainGangGuy (4351) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - MAR 4, 2008
Appearance: Pours an onyx black body topped by a tall, dark tan head. Smell: Aroma heavy on the roast, and boozey, too. Notes of burnt wood, dark caramel, chocolate, a puff of smoke and, once allowed to warm a bit, a medley of dried fruits. Taste: There’s an intense charred, smokey roastiness upfront followed by a sweet dark chocolate taste to make it bearable. Tastes of caramel syrup, fire-scorced marshmallows, and a bit of fruit. Mild oak character. Medium earthy bitterness that recedes as you approach the finish. A touch of oak and yeast (and booze) for the finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium carbonation. Drinkability: This stout is top notch, Midnight Sun!
