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.

Another long time want provided by Mike. I can’t think of another stout that I’ve wanted to try more than this. In typical Midnight Sun fashion, Sloth pours pitch black with a small amount of cocoa colored head. Nose is a balance of chocolate and tannins. A good amount of red wine still comes through actually. Flavor is cocoa, red wine, and oak. Mouthfeel is thick and slightly oily, a little thin for MS, light carbonation, and a long finish. Reminds me a lot of Bar Fly actually. It doesn’t have much of the Belgian character I thought it would, but that doesn’t detract from the beer. Solid imperial stout.

4oz draft at Brouwers. Thick black pour with thick brown head; decent retention and lacing. Aroma: alcohol, chocolate, roast, old hops / light oxidation; pie filling. Tastes pretty good - raisins join the party, lovely sweet chocolate, moderate roast. Mildly astringent, assertively roasty bitter finish. Full body, slick oily texture. Overall: intense, well worth drinking.

jbruner (3783) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - FEB 28, 2016
Bottle thanks to trade with AkAndy! Pours an opaque black from the bomber with thin lacy brown head that leaves light lace. Aroma of big bourbon barrel notes, vanilla and chocolate sweetness. Taste is a bit more smoky and spicy bit still really big on the bourbon notes. Thick and viscous, soft carbonation, solid.

furthur (762) - Eagle River, Alaska, USA - JAN 20, 2016
Draft at brewery, black beer, skiff of walnut colored foam. Aroma molasses and cookies, vanilla, faint dark fruit. Taste molasses and cookies, vanilla, bourbon, roasty toasted barley, oak, hint of coffee. Finish is lingeringly, almost saccharine bittersweet, not in a bad way, just has hang time. Palate is rich and smooth, carbonation moderate.

Bomber format into a midnight sun globe glass Black with hints of brown and ruby. Lots of dark brown residue on the sides of the glass. Thin dark brown head. Dark Belgian chocolate nose with roast, oak, and lots of dark fruits. Cherry and raspberry for the most part. Taste is dry Belgian chocolate, dry roast, whiskey, tar, tobacco and dark cherry and raspberry. Lots of red wine and grape in the mouth. Lots of tannins. Masterpiece beer. Well balanced. No oxidation in this at all. Full bodied, light carbonation. Complex and just brilliant.

22 oz. bottle sampled at a local ba tasting notes. Pours dark brown to black in color with a small beige head. The aroma and flavor had roasted malts, Belgian chocolate, molasses, oak, some whiskey character, dark fruits, vanilla, coconut and caramel. Was probably the best one of the set at the time.
