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.

22oz bottle. Pours aa deep dark black. Aroma of cherries, vanilla, coconut, and hints of bourbon. Flavor of whiskey, vanilla, chocolate. A very complex profile to this beer. What an amazing bottle.

This beer is one of the absolute best takes on this style currently in the trade at this time. I love it, and am looking forward to the release of Berserker so I can try them side by side. Deep, dark and dense, with just a hint of brown head on top, just a dollop. Sweet fruity aroma, with some chocolate covered cherries, wood and vanilla. Soft creamy mouthfeel, with loads of chocolate and cocoa, and a bit of a cola like finish. Really nice stuff.

22. Wow. Thanks, SuzyGreenberg! Black. Dense, creamy tan head. Mild lace up the sides. Humongous chocolate nose. Sweet, roasty, delectable. Rich, creamy body. Soft carb. Chocolatey, roasty, liquoricey mid-palate. Slightly ashy. Gently and sweetly and beautifully delicious. Mild sweet finish. Wonderful stuff.

pantanap (3366) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - APR 27, 2008
22oz bottle from a previous trade. had in celebration of monica’s completion of the boston marathon..... pours as close to black as it can get with a moderate and withstanding frothy tan head that really never seemed to subside..... nose was of rich chocolate, light roasted malt and a little alcohol..... flavors of chocolate, yeast, somewhat boozy, roasted malt. a velvety smooth texture, somewhat chalky, bitter ash in the finish without much bite....pretty nice overall.

MaxxDaddy (415) - Hoboken, New Jersey, USA - APR 9, 2008
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.

goldtwins (4320) - Nesconset, New York, USA - APR 7, 2008
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 (12942) - 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.

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
