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.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2009 So rich and smooth and excellent on the palate. Nice and full body and toasty and delcious. A little alcohol present too but really smooth. Having this again made me realize that it is freakin awesome. So incredibly rich and the alcohol has faded a bit. Chocolaty goodness, creamy, candy in a glass. Loads of complexity with vanilla and toffee with just the right level of roast. Amazing.

AmEricanbrew (5840) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - MAR 23, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2009 Diesel oil black with a fleeting brown head. Heavenly aromas of roasty malts with oak vanilla, licorice. Rich, hearty flavor is a fantastic mix of dry roasty malts with sweet molasses, rich chocolate and vanilla. The barrel aging effect is damn near perfect here, nice oak wood notes. One of the best B -aged stouts I’ve had. Awesome. 9/4/9/4/18.............................. May 2009 update. Had this from a cellared keg at the new MS location. Lots of black malt and astringent tobacco flavors with some vanilla sweetness and sour wood also had some metalic notes in the flavor. 8/4/8/4/15

Courtesy Beerlando. Black. Small brown head. At first sniff I thought somebody put some Bell’s 7K in the bottle. A ton of malt complexity- roasty, bittersweet, earthy, lightly smokey, a touch of peated malt?, dark dried fruits, and cookie complimented very nicely by some barrel elements of charred oak, vanilla, and just a touch of whiskey- either the beer is bold enough to overpower the whiskey or the barrels were not first re-use- whichever it is it works, very well. Any Belgian elements are masked by the malt and the barrel, some hop bitterness helps dry out the end a bit. Huge beer, very full body, balanced carbonation. Awesome imperial stout.

hopscotch (9161) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - MAR 16, 2009
UPDATED: MAR 17, 2009 Bottle…Pre-Chunk & Patriot’s Lick-Yo-Face-Off Throwdown!... This beer rocks!... Pours pitch black with a very small, creamy, light brown head. The woodsy, chocolaty aroma provides a swirl of oak, sourmash, tobacco, coconut and espresso. Full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Sweet dark-chocolate, bourbon and gobs of sticky burnt-marshmallow layered upon lesser notes of bitter espresso and charcoal. Burnt, chocolaty, woodsy, warming finish. Thanks to Beerlando for providing the bottle of this world class imperial stout!

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2010 Pitch black at the center, with glints of crimson tinged mahogany at the far edge, the body is topped with a creamy, smooth, mocha colored head that lasts. Thin, sheety lacing forms in broken slotches and sticks strongly to the glass. The nose is fantastic. A rich and creamy, dark Belgian chocolate base is kissed with subtle, soft, oaky vanilla and the perfect amount of bourbon. Indiscernible dark fruit lends a lightly sweet, sort of earthy feel, while hints of smoked peat and caramel malt lend further depth. Subtle anise lends just a bit of bite. Flavors are equally fantastic. Belgian yeast lends a unique twist to the rich, hefty choco-caramel. Bourbon is perfectly introduced, not too strong, but substantial enough to let you know it means business. The smokiness really lends a deep, earthy layer, and the vanilla from the oak just pulls everything together nicely. Smooth, creamy, almost velvety in the mouth, a bit more viscosity would make for a perfect palate. Just a fantastic beer from start to finish. Belgian brewers take note, these guys in Alaska are beating you at your own game.

Bottle shared at redlight redlight. I am not sure who brought it. Miketd? Wow. This beer was one of my favorites and I definitely want more. Very sweet and fruity. Roasted malts, caramel and vanilla. Everything was so well blended and alcohol ridiculously well hidden. Yum!

riversideAK (5625) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - FEB 13, 2009
Black beer with a nice tan head. The aroma is of belgian yeast, chocolate, and some coffee, but it is more interesting than it actually sounds, believe me. Flavors of chocolate, dark fruit, light yeasty spice. Full bodied, creamy, almost syrupy in a sense. The yeasty spice really adds a lot to this.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - DEC 8, 2008
Bottle shared at pauls. Pours a black body with a thin white lacing. A big aroma of fruity esters, malt, and alcohol. Light roasty coffee, maple, vanilla, licorice, and coco. Peat and light smokiness.
