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.

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.

July 1st Sunday. This series was before my time, but jrob21 let me know this these were kind of a big deal back in 2007. Either way was just a hint of oxidation, this really held up nicely. Huge chocolate, malt balls, hint of char and soy, dark ripe fruits. Big, bold, thick.

Never thought I would see this but thank god I did. Whiskey vanilla aromas. Touch, light of soy sauce flavors. Very smooth and balanced flavor between the barrel and the malt. Roasted malt, milk chocolate rich flavors. So smooth, so nice. Still a really tasty beer.

Rated on 9-25-2009 at Fort Wayne, IN Gathering. This bottled beer courtesy of jsquire pours a small smooth light brown head with a long retention, opaque body, spotty amounts of lacing, and no carbonation. The Aroma is roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla, and alcohol. The Taste is roasted malt, chocolate, and alcohol. The Palate is tingly and this beer is medium-full bodied. Overall, this beer is very tasty as the flavors come together very well. I recommend trying this beer and it is a beer that I would drink again.

Bottle shared by Thoroe429. Thanks Mike! The beer is near black and appears viscous and oily. Minimal beige head. The aroma brings roast, oak, lightly sweet. Mild smoke in the aroma with a delicate warming alcohol finish. Relatively full bodied and palate coating. An outstanding example of the style. Serving type: bottle Reviewed on: 07-07-2012

Epic tasting beer coming back on the ratings, looking forward to trying a new batch as this is a bit old although was pretty solid, don’t give up much for this batch, but cool to try

Bottle at epic STL tasting, thanks boys! Pour is deep black with small tan head. Aroma and flavor is full of musty and earthy with hints of cocoa, light alcohol, and notes of faint fruit. Flavor is smooth chocolate and cocoa powder with hints of chocolate and faint coffee. Very nice.

Huge thanks to AgentZero for making this happen. Served in a Midnight Sun goblet. Pours near-black with a short off-white head and not much in the way of lacing. The nose has a pretty heavy amount of roast with some light barrel character. Some chocolate and just a bit of vanilla in the background. Not getting much from the Belgian yeast at this point. Flavor is similar and fairly muted. Seems a bit oxidized. Heavy malt character with roast and chocolate. A bit undercarbonated. Nice, but just seems to fall flat like it’s well past its prime, unfortunately. Still, very fun to try.

Draft at Tap Root Beer and Mead Social: Poured a thick black sludge with a light brown head. Aroma was complex with dark malts, hints of fruit and woodsy. Taste is a blast of roasted malts, dark fermented fruit, and nice warming booziness finish. Very smooth overall but complex if that makes sense. This beer has held up well and was a pleasure to get a sample of.

6oz pour at the brewpub. Bit surprized that this was on tap, I had asked for Oakage TREAT but that was out and this was on. Glad to have tried this excellent brew. . Pours rich dark brown, with huge milkshake thick head. Great nose of dark fruit and chocolate. I get tastes of chocolate, coffee, earth, plums, roasted barley, and vanilla. Great palate and slight boozy finish. Wonderful.
