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.

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.

Tasted at the Carolina Crew gathering, Greenville - thanks to AKBelgianBeast for the trade! A huge thick head sits atop a rich, inky black pour. Strong roasted notes and creamy chocolate aromas emerge quickly. Prickly carbonation is a bit surprising, but it doesn’t do anything more than deliver the massive chocolatey goodness of this beer even more effectively. Complex, scrumptious, very good.

Tried from bottle with Atlanta ratebeer crew at 5 Seasons North tasting. Another awesome rare treat I’m very thankful to try. Black. Sweet malty taste. Creamy mouthfeel. Low carbonation. A hint of alcohol is noticable. A bit musty. Lots of bitterness and flavor.

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.

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.
