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 brewsip 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.

Thanks to jw77 for sharing this one at RBWG. Pours dark brown with a tan head. Nose is roast, dark fruit, yeast, chocolate, earth, and some smoke. Flavor is similar with earth, roast, and yeast prominent. Similar flavors in background. Finish lingers with roast and chocolate.

Bottle. Huge massive thanks to JW77 for sharing at RBWG. Small sample but it looked to be almost black with a small head. But again very small sample. Nose was big roasted malt but terrific melding of bourbon. rich chocolate, raisin and dark caramel. Nose is incredibly intense. Flavor is just as intense. Up front chocolate covered raisins with a terrific cherry pit character. Roast character is low as this is on the sweeter side but by no means is it sticky. Its quite dry and finishes with wood bourbon and even a little smoke. This thing is so complex I could drink it for an hour and still come up with different characteristics. Truly an exceptional beer.

RBWG10 cheers to JW77 for this one. Pours deep oily black, mocha head. Aroma lots of chocolate malts, grainy. Flavors, roasted malts, possibly some dark berries, dark roast and cocoa nibs, touch of coffee and mocha, silky chocolate palate with nice coffee finish. This is a lot of yum.

Wow, huge thanks to ipa247 on BA for sharing this extreme rarity that I thought Id never get a chance to try. Jeff somehow pulls some insanely ridiculous beers. This one really blew me away and exceeded even the high expectations I had set for it. Excellent appearance, jet black in color with a fluffy brown head and great lacing. Some legs on this beer as well. Absolutely incredible aroma. Roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, coconut, oak, anise, and whiskey. Flavor is also really complex and amazing. You can definitely tell that this has some Belgian notes in it, and they meld with the rest of the flavor seamlessly. Gentle roast and rich chocolate flavors, as well as toffee and maybe even some candi sugar, vanilla, coconut, molasses, licorice, oak, and yeast. Extremely complex and well-balanced, never overpowering. The drinkability is insanely high. Overall, just a phenomenal beer, and instantly one of my favorite examples of my favorite style. Wish they would brew this one again.

Tmoney99 (11084) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JAN 24, 2010
Bottle share at local BA gathering. Poured black color with an average creamy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Heavy toasted chocolate, wood with a small alcohol aroma. Median to full body with a creamy texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet chocolate malt flavor with a heavy bittersweet finish of long duration. This is a standout beer.

bottle at Ft Wayne tasting from Jsquire - Pours near black with a tan head and a big dark roast chocolate malt aroma. This full bodied brew is heavy on the dark roast malt, has some chocolate notes, and has a bit more bubbly feel than the usual imperial stout. Its a very rich, enjoyable brew.
