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!

Black with tan froth. Roasted aroma, coffee, hops and dark sugar. Sweet flavour, slightly sugary/syrupy. Slightly jammy. Hoppy bitterness with coffee and notes of salty licorice. Warming alcohol. Sticky and nicely balanced.

Gluepot (407) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2015
The nose features very dark fresh ground coffee with a touch of cream. The taste is highlighted by super integration. The fresh ground coffee leads the taste profile as well, with milk chocolate and a touch of molasses, which comes out as the beer warms up.

330 ml bottle. BB 05/11/19. (Alko) Tampere, Finland.
Pitch black color with a small tan head. Black coffee, dark roast and some roasted malt in the aroma. The flavor is also pure black roasted coffee... unfortunately I cant find much more. Im learning to like coffee stouts but obviously Im not there yet. Rich and thick palate.

Thick black pour with lots of foam. On the nose, heavy aromas of coffee, milk chocolate and malt. Taste is first rich milk chocolate and caramel before the coffee kicks in, resulting in a slightly bitter, but long, long aftertaste. Full body, soft carbonation. An excellent stout that I would definetely drink again.

Beerheart65 (1390) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 9, 2015
Beautifully black, ebony, 2 finger dense creamy, long brown head leaving foggy islands that last really long, sticky lacing. Herbs are 1st in aroma, roasted malt, lots of coffee, later pine, salty licorice, chocolate. Lively and nuanced aroma. Heavy, full feel, velvety soft, full bodied, long finish, nicely roasted to medium bitter, sweet. Excellent, balanced, lively, nuanced, lots of character, good aromas and flavors, looks great, highly recommended!

pours black with brown head. Beautiful beer. Aroma is roasted, delicious coffee and hints of dark chocolate. Mostly the aroma is just loads of dark roasted coffee. Flavour is coffee, heavy sweet, roasted and dark chocolate. This is a very sweet beer with loads and loads of coffee.
