COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The great warrior of Gath. The mighty champion of the Philistines. Embedded in ancient folklore and religion. Coming from the World of Old. His size and stature is not human. He is bigger. The armor of Goliat is black. Creamy black lacings. Stands with a towering height. He can grab elements from both earth and heaven. Earthy, roasted, notes from the earth. Warming, pungent, sweet notes from the skies. His heart is beating slowly, almost endlessly slow. This man is thought to be invincible!

Ingredients: Water, barley malt, roasted barley, dark cassonade sugar, flaked oats, hops, gourmet coffee and yeast.

Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Poured dark brown in colour with a thin tan head. Roasted malts and coffee in aroma. Really intensive on the nose. Loads of coffee, dark chocolate and more coffee in flavour. Aftertaste slightly bitter and once again coffee. Nice brew, more please!

Jashiu (77) - Gdañsk, POLAND - JUL 18, 2016
Tap @Pulapka Gdansk. Aroma of coffee (straight from the coffee filter) and dark chocolate, roasted malt, carmelized sugar. Pours black with a thick, small and short in time, beige head. Tastes of coffee and dark chocolate, pretty sweet. Very full and oily. Warming alcohol feeling. Very nice, would like to see how it ages.

Flaska. Svart öl med ett beigt skum. Dofter och smaker av kaffe, rostad malt, choklad och torkad frukt. Lätt oljig munkänsla. Fyller ut kroppen väl.

Svart öl med ljusbrunt skum. Doft och smak av choklad, kaffe och mörka bär. En bra imperial Stout som döljer alkoholen väl.

Słodka czarna kawa, czekoladowa, ale nie przeszłodzona. Doskonała odskocznia podczas degustacji w czasie Wrocławskiego Festiwalu Ddobrego Piwa 2016.

Freshly ground coffee in aroma. Solid, thick, lasting head. Non-transparent black colour. Full-bodied, dominated by sweetness with some coffee components and coffee aftertaste. The taste reminded me of well-sugared coffee.
