Thirsty Thursday Beer Painting #58, February 4, 2016, Sloth Belgian-Style Imperial Stout by Midnight Sun Brewing Co.

Originally part of the 7 Deadly Sins series of 2007, Sloth Belgian-Style Imperial Stout is one of the finest beers brewed by Midnight Sun Brewing here in Anchorage, Alaska.  There is a reason Midnight Sun claims this is one of Alaska’s Most Wanted beers on the label.  It is really good!  A sloth is a cute, but slow creature moving so slowly that algae grows in its fur.  I recommend drinking this beer as if you were a sloth, sipping it slowly like you have all the time in the world.  Sloths are tan and develop a green tinge as the algae grows in their fur.  The beer is as dark as night, and has a serious punch in its flavor.  It smells sweet from the extensive malt backbone, and Belgian yeast, and the booze is there, but for a 10% beer it tastes mild due to the Bourbon barrel aging.  I recommend buying a case of this amazing brew, as it is one that will hang out and cellar well.  Don’t delay, the last time it was brewed was 10 years ago!  Cheers to the Sloth in all of us.  Hey, it might be a deadly sin, but it is dreadfully delicious as a beer!
