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.

Bottle share at local BA gathering. Poured black color with an average creamy light brown head that mostly lasted with good lacing. Heavy toasted chocolate, wood with a small alcohol aroma. Median to full body with a creamy texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy toasted sweet chocolate malt flavor with a heavy bittersweet finish of long duration. This is a standout beer.

bottle at Ft Wayne tasting from Jsquire - Pours near black with a tan head and a big dark roast chocolate malt aroma. This full bodied brew is heavy on the dark roast malt, has some chocolate notes, and has a bit more bubbly feel than the usual imperial stout. Its a very rich, enjoyable brew.

This bottled brew from a rating party poured a small sized head of foamy finely sized brown colored bubbles that were long lasting and left behind a opaque dark black colored body. The aroma was roasted malt coffee and dark malt. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish. The flavor contained notes of toasted malt roasted malt and dark malt. Delicious and one I would certainly like to have again.

The Dan Journal #271. Tasted 7/2/09. 22oz Bomber. Opaque brown with a dark khaki head. Mild nose with hints of cocoa dust and faint coffee. Full bodied with a smooth palate and a good amount of flavors. Mild chocolate and fudge. Cinnamon and graham crackers. Mild citrus notes in the finish. Bright effervescence. Good beer! More so Imperial Stout, less Belgian. Dry, earthy malts with a sticky finish. Slight burn and very nice!

22 oz bottle. Ebony with a tan haze and a ring. Nose is rich dark chocolate, espresso, coconut and grass. Silky with a full mouthfeel dissolving with an airy sparkle. Taste is Belgian chocolate, caramel, orange peel and dark roast. Hints of sassafras. Perfectly bittersweet with marvelous complexity.

6/19/2009: Finally, something really worth trying! Midnight Sun Sloth has a great aroma thats like chocolate cake paired with malt whisky along with some charred woody notes. It is almost port-like in both the aroma and flavor. There is a lot of deep caramelization in this beer and the flavor contains smooth Belgian chocolate, charred wood, and mocha with a vanilla finish to it. It is smooth, full-bodied, and creamy. Overall it is really complex and VERY good!

Draught (6 fl. oz. sample) at the Midnight Sun Brewing Company Loft in Anchorage, Alaska. Rating #70 for this beer.

22 oz bottle from a large Midnight Sun delivery from my brother. Deep, dark color with a whisp of amber head. Nose of bourbon and chocolate. Tastes of coffee, chocolate, bourbon, smoky. A bit dry on the palate. Flavor develops as it warms. Delicious.

Wow! I was excitied to see this on tap for the Grand Opening of the new location this weekend. A very dark pour black with a tan/brown fluffy head. Leaves a nice lace. Roasted notes with hints of chocolate and whiskey. Taste is the same. A nice drink, full bodied and creamy. Awesome brew!
