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.

On tap @ the brewery, they broke out 5 gallons of this to help break in the new place. Aroma is huge and filled with chocolate, coffee, oak, alcohol and vanilla. Black with just the slightest bit of color around the edges, dense brown head leaving a lot of lace. Flavor is sweet with a very light amount of bitter and sour. Full bodied, thick oily mouth feel, soft carbonation and a long sweet finish. This is an amazing beer, imagine a world class Imp Stout brewed with a Belgian yeast that just adds to the complexity, taste and aroma.

AgentSteve (1647) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - APR 24, 2009
Poured deep an viscous brown with a dark tan finger thick head. The nose is big an complex with coffee, chocolate, vanilla and oak. The flavor is extremely smooth with the same influences from the nose with a touch of vinous influence along with a hint of coconut. No hint of alcohol until I was most of the way into my glass. Creamy smooth mouthfeel.

UPDATED: AUG 31, 2009 So rich and smooth and excellent on the palate. Nice and full body and toasty and delcious. A little alcohol present too but really smooth. Having this again made me realize that it is freakin awesome. So incredibly rich and the alcohol has faded a bit. Chocolaty goodness, creamy, candy in a glass. Loads of complexity with vanilla and toffee with just the right level of roast. Amazing.

AmEricanbrew (6878) - Same Trailer, Different Park, Louisiana, USA - MAR 23, 2009
UPDATED: JUN 10, 2009 Diesel oil black with a fleeting brown head. Heavenly aromas of roasty malts with oak vanilla, licorice. Rich, hearty flavor is a fantastic mix of dry roasty malts with sweet molasses, rich chocolate and vanilla. The barrel aging effect is damn near perfect here, nice oak wood notes. One of the best B -aged stouts Ive had. Awesome. 9/4/9/4/18.............................. May 2009 update. Had this from a cellared keg at the new MS location. Lots of black malt and astringent tobacco flavors with some vanilla sweetness and sour wood also had some metalic notes in the flavor. 8/4/8/4/15

Courtesy Beerlando. Black. Small brown head. At first sniff I thought somebody put some Bells 7K in the bottle. A ton of malt complexity- roasty, bittersweet, earthy, lightly smokey, a touch of peated malt?, dark dried fruits, and cookie complimented very nicely by some barrel elements of charred oak, vanilla, and just a touch of whiskey- either the beer is bold enough to overpower the whiskey or the barrels were not first re-use- whichever it is it works, very well. Any Belgian elements are masked by the malt and the barrel, some hop bitterness helps dry out the end a bit. Huge beer, very full body, balanced carbonation. Awesome imperial stout.

UPDATED: MAR 17, 2009 BottlePre-Chunk & Patriots Lick-Yo-Face-Off Throwdown!... This beer rocks!... Pours pitch black with a very small, creamy, light brown head. The woodsy, chocolaty aroma provides a swirl of oak, sourmash, tobacco, coconut and espresso. Full-bodied with a silky mouthfeel and soft carbonation. Sweet dark-chocolate, bourbon and gobs of sticky burnt-marshmallow layered upon lesser notes of bitter espresso and charcoal. Burnt, chocolaty, woodsy, warming finish. Thanks to Beerlando for providing the bottle of this world class imperial stout!

Beerlando (3342) - Orlando, Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2009
UPDATED: AUG 4, 2010 Pitch black at the center, with glints of crimson tinged mahogany at the far edge, the body is topped with a creamy, smooth, mocha colored head that lasts. Thin, sheety lacing forms in broken slotches and sticks strongly to the glass. The nose is fantastic. A rich and creamy, dark Belgian chocolate base is kissed with subtle, soft, oaky vanilla and the perfect amount of bourbon. Indiscernible dark fruit lends a lightly sweet, sort of earthy feel, while hints of smoked peat and caramel malt lend further depth. Subtle anise lends just a bit of bite. Flavors are equally fantastic. Belgian yeast lends a unique twist to the rich, hefty choco-caramel. Bourbon is perfectly introduced, not too strong, but substantial enough to let you know it means business. The smokiness really lends a deep, earthy layer, and the vanilla from the oak just pulls everything together nicely. Smooth, creamy, almost velvety in the mouth, a bit more viscosity would make for a perfect palate. Just a fantastic beer from start to finish. Belgian brewers take note, these guys in Alaska are beating you at your own game.
