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.

Acquired this beer at the 2010 Dark Lord Day in a trade for a Brooklyn Black Ops and a Captain Lawrence Liquid Gold. Let me start out by saying, best trade we ever made.

When the cap is taken off, the smell is not overwhelming. It's just right. Pours smooth and pure into a glass, leaving a small amount of caramel colored bubbles.

The smell is now hauntingly appetizing.

Taste is exceptional. Very smooth, smokey with some light saltiness. Chocolate, fig, black cherry, light molasses, angel tears, a hint of pure sinful madness, dark fruits and caramel. Finishes with a lasting, chewable single note.

A rare contender to the auspiciously created Dark Lord.

And to think I was trying to hold out for something better...I stand corrected and shamed by my lack of knowledge.
