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.

3fourths (7859) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2008
UPDATED: JUL 25, 2012 Rich dark black body with a creamy brown head, mostly composed of medium to large sized bubbles. Settles out into a brown ring with a patch of foam in the center, but otherwise it settles down to the top of the liquid. Rich mocha chocolate cocoa powder nose. Hugely rich dry cocoa powder up front, heavily dry, parched, somewhat prickly over the back. Coconut and vanilla noticed, very tasty, dry, rich and powdery.... the dryness from the oak is remarkable, it dances with the cocoa powder quality very well. Thanks TAR!

Crosling (1863) - Loveland, Colorado, USA - AUG 30, 2008
Red tinged black colored beer with a full tan head. Really nice aromas, with deep dark fruits, brandy and roasted malt and chocolate notes. Delightfully crafted malt character, with notes of peanut butter, chocolate, espresso roast and dark fruits. Incredible 30-second + finish lasts and lasts. Amazing ale.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2009 Draft at brewery, deep tan head, coffee aroma, deep brown color. Wow, this was a Great beer. The previous review was dead on, the combination of chocolate, coffee and fruit was perfect.

UPDATED: OCT 28, 2008 Bomber shared w/ J-nizz...This blew me away...I would buy a new couch everyday if I could sip on this. Ah yes, couch. Big and bold, loaded with roast but also ripened fruit notes and sweet vanilla. Really an intruiging stout as it incorporates many different flavor nuances. Really wish I had more of this. Nothing more to say than, SLOTHEEENNNNYYYYY!

MaltOMeal (1090) - Land of Sugar, Texas, USA - AUG 5, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 6, 2008 bomber thanks to brewboone. Pours black as ink with a brown head which lingered and produced some lacing. Nose is of coffee and oak. Taste was chocolate, coffee and dark fruit. Delicious! Mouthfeel was medium and creamy with right amount of sweetness. Very complex. This was one fantastic brew. Was sad when it was finished.

kmweaver (3206) - Petaluma, California, USA - AUG 4, 2008
22oz bottle, courtesy of TomDecapolis, Saturday at BCTC. Thanks, Tom! Pours an oily, pitty brown color; medium tan head with patchy lacing. Intense, chewy nougat, dark chocolate, and dried dark fruits in the aroma; oily, lightly toasted, gorgeous and viscous. Full mouthfeel: oily, heavy on the palate, with loads of nougat, chewy dried dark fruits, complex yeastiness, and a touch of pitty dark fruits and raspberries; really nice, complex, oily feel. Excellent. Lengthy finish: dried dark fruits, caramel, and toasty malts; nice and dry end. A very pleasant, unique take on the imperial stout style.

hapjydeuce (924) - San Diego, California, USA - JUL 27, 2008
Bottle generously shared by jarspag for the 7/18 D-Metal at his pad in OC. Thanks again for this rarity bro! This one was sampled before and after the QUAZZ! This is a seriously thick, viscous and tasty Belgian imperial Stout! Pours pitch black, and fairly still with some minimal traces of lace. Aroma is loaded with sugary vanilla, blackened malt and bourbon alcohol warmth. All-around a fantastic flavor; big, robust chocolate malts with sweet anise, licorice and coffee. Awesomely chewy palate. The "Just add couch" is perfect for this beer, considering that’s all we did for this session.

emacgee (3957) - Chapel Hill, North Carolina, USA - JUL 21, 2008
Thanks a TON to JCB for bring this to the tasting for me. Pours a dark black with a really nice creamy chestnut brown head. The nose is dark and roasty, milk chocolate, sweet fruit, coffee. The flavor is roasty, fruity, chocolate, coffee, very smooth. Nice smooth and rich palate that is lightly warming.
