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 brewsip 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.

Alengrin (4826) - BELGIUM - JUN 28, 2016
Bottle shared by Trevor at Belgium Chimipalooza, cheers. Belgian style imperial stout from Alaska. Lightly lacing, pale brownish beige, creamy head over a black beer with chestnut edges. Aroma of chocolate sauce, baked banana, fig, coffee liqueur and slight coffee grounds, vanilla, dates, whisky, raisin, leather. Sweet onset, some banana, raisin, date but balanced with a beefy umami accent and a softly sourish undercurrent, softish carbo, thick, oily and slick caramelly malt body quickly turning deeply chocolatey, some yeasty spiciness here and there, toasted bittering ending along with peppery hops and warming, bourbon-like alcohol. Along the same lines as Weyerbachers Tiny but cleaner and more chocolatey.

Prufrockstar (2040) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 18, 2016
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 (4377) - 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 (1047) - 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.
