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.

DuffMan (8051) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 30, 2015
Bottle. Viscous near black with a finely bubbled tan head. Bitter roast and raw coffee, undertones of capsicum and caramel, lots of residual sugars, very sweet with a bitter finish. Not as grand as Id expected-- a bit simple; sweet without complexity.

10.1% ABV. Imperial coffee stout. Poured out of bottle 40SRM, a thick syrupy black brown nectar. Beautiful. Nose is full of understated, cocoa like flavors. There are some clean and neatly roasty flavors. Some nice sweet dates or like a fresh date pudding. Beautifully balanced carbonation which for something like in an imperial stout is an infrequent enough thing. If you thought the nose was date pudding, the palate is lightly fruity then roasted oats, barley toast, coffee, dark chocolate, cotton candy. Cleanest finish of any of the imperial stouts. Homer big time!!! Goes on favorites list!!

Cool_Bond (2039) - KUNG_AV_OL @ Instagram, SWEDEN - AUG 11, 2015
Incredibly much aroma of coffee. The palate is liquorice, dark coffee, dark chocolate, which I like a lot. Very heavy bitterness in the aftertaste that fills the mouth forever. Im just enjoying this beer. Truly a taste sensation! Follow me @ Kung av l @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

jahshuwuh (497) - USA - AUG 10, 2015
Pitch black with plenty of dark tan head. Smells of strong black roasted coffee, and chocolate dominate. Taste is a roasted chocolate coffee, mocha, roasted hop bitter, ash. Smooth and easy to drink for the high abv, creamy. A sweetness and earthy hop bitter to finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

willisread (937) - Tokyo, JAPAN - AUG 9, 2015
Bottle from Stone in Asagaya. Pours a dark, deep brown with a huge brown head that leaves a nice rim around the glass and gorgeous lacing. Big aromas of milk chocolate syrup, cacao, roasted espresso with some light wood character as well. Taste lives up to the nose, with a little bit of fruity sourness that rears its head as well (prune?). Nice bittersweet and roasty flavor but overall well-balanced.

Garrold (2691) - Sheffield, South Yorkshire, ENGLAND - AUG 8, 2015
Bottle. Beer Central, Sheffield. Clear, deep chestnut brown. Film of tan head. Leggy and viscous. Aroma is earthy, old coffee bean. Woody cocoa. An espresso with three sugars. Taste is tooth rot sweet. Some earthy bitterness. Vinous tang. Silky palate. Finishes big sweet, with a long, tangy bitter close. Way too sweet for me.

reebtogi (4891) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - AUG 7, 2015
375ml bottle pours black in color with a 2 finger light brown head that leaves some decent lacing on the glass. Aroma is chocolate and roasted grains with hints of coffee. Taste is a roasted grain and coffee bitterness with a bold chocolate malty sweetness. Medium bodied with decent carbonation. Alcohol is well hidden. Overall, a well balanced and tasty Imperial stout that I highly recommend to others. Much better than I can describe here.
