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.

Clownoisseur (453) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - MAY 23, 2017
Bottle via trade, thanks Kevin! Pours an oily dark brown, near black. Foamy head, large bubbles that fade to a half ring. Oily in appearance, slightly translucent hues of brown. Aromas of dark fruits, licorice, light oak/bourbon, light Belgian esters with banana and coriander. Taste follows the nose with a chocolate covered cherry note. Plums, raisins, licorice, hint of soy. Oak/bourbon is light, non-abrasive. Light roast, light smoke and light vanilla. Definitely on the sweet side. Solid beer, but not one I would come back to probably. Personal taste.

BOLTZ7555 (3027) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - MAY 20, 2017
Midnight sun pour with a tightly packed latte head. Small, medium, and large bubbles percolating and then exploding at the surface. Dark roasted chocolate, vanilla, and bourbon. A bit of raisin, oak, toasted coconut, hint of soy and black licorice, vanilla, and cocoa. Can only imagine what a game changer this was in 2007. Still delicious today. Wow!

Bottle 0.65l from Harrys Hofbrau Redwood City: pours oily black, opaque with stable light brown creamy head, which transforms itself to a ring around a glass. Aroma-flavors: roasted grain, dark malts, wirh notes of coffe, cacao dark chocolate, vanilla, molasses, vanillin, red wine, port wine, bourbon, dark fruits esters... Slightly astringent dry finish, full body, smooth texture, low carbonation. When it warms up it become truly world-class beer.

Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - NOV 7, 2016
UPDATED: NOV 7, 2016 Courtesy of 5000 via trade Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate dark chocolate, light vanilla, coconut, dark fruits, roast, bourbon, and a touch of anise. It pours a dark brown, virtually black, with no transparency and a one finger tan head that fades to a thin film outlined by a thicker ring. There is some thin webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate chocolate and light roasted malt. There are some light dark fruits in the middle. The finish has light-moderate espresso, light brunt notes, coconut, and mild bourbon. It?s full bodied with light-moderate carbonation.

Bomber from Capitol Beer in Sacramento, CA. Pours very dark brn/blk with a slight dark tan head. Aroma is dark chocolaty treacle with bourbon/vanilla. Whiskey even. It is full + bodied. Flavor is really dark treacle, bourbon in significant amount, alcohol/whiskey to be included, and maybe a slight touch of smoke. The flavors are complex and amazing. It is extremely tasty. Incredible.

Tasted from bottle. Pours black with thick khaki head. Aroma is bourbon, cocoa, caramel. Taste is mildly bitter with moderate sweetness. Flavors of bourbon, chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits, caramel, toffee. Really don't get much if any of the Belgian yeast notes. Overall very well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
