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.

12.7 oz bottle. Euro roast malt. Very bittersweet chocolate. Not getting coffee as a featured flavor. Little to traditional russian imperial for my taste.

Un stout impérial digne de ce nom. La bière fut dégustée en comparaison avec son homologue vieillie en fût de bourbon. Lorsque la Goliat est chargée en café, riche, onctueuse et crémeuse, la bière vieillie en fût de bourbon est unidimensionnelle. La GIS BA ne laissant presque aucune trace sur le verre, la GIS laisse de riches et onctueux lacings derrière elle. Alors que la GIS BA semble quasiment sèche et mince, la GIS est ronde et ample. Je reçois des arômes de café sur une base malté, torréfiée, maltés à souhait et séduisante. La version BA est beaucoup plus mince, acide, étroite et impatiente. La version BA me paraît téméraire, impatiente, jeune, juvénile. La Goliat pour sa part me semble beaucoup mieux balancée par un alcool bien mieux dissimulé et une torréfaction des mieux réussies. Une comparaison des plus intéressantes!

dfearnley (1759) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 16, 2015
Bottle to pint glass Chocolate, hazelnut, coffee, roasted malt, and coffee. It’s dark brown with a huge, frothy, 3 cm head, that reduces fairly quickly to 1cm. There’s a lot of lacing as a result. Taste is primarily coffee with chocolate, light sourness, caramel and toasted malt.

Čapované v Beer Time Nitra. Tmavá nepriehladná farba, nahnedlá pena, výrazná aróma kávy s niečím ostrejším. Nižšia rezkosť, chuť plná nasládlá, káva, káva, káva. Zážitok. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft. Black. Rich frothy creamy light brown layer of foam. Coffee. Cream. Sugar. Lots of sugar. Bigger medium body. Mild bitter. Mild to medium roast. Sweet. Coffee character is excellent. Too sweet. Hard to finish actually.

AWISLguy (2450) - Wisconsin, USA - OCT 5, 2015
500ml bomber from Beer Bazaar. A bit of a foamy pour, heavily black body with a brown head, leaving a lot of lace. Nose is like diving into a chocolate coffee bean. Caramel. Light vanilla. But luscious, big, green coffee beans. Taste has more of a chocolate cocoa lead, with espresso, some lactose and caramel solidly there. Raw and a bit rough. Full bodied with a bit of alcohol. Finishes to the roasty bitter side of bittersweet. Definite fan. 15.9

Average creamy dark brown lasting head with murky black body. Heavy malt molasses and coffee with smoke touch. Full creamy body with soft carbonation and bitter finish. Long duration flavor. Slightly sweet and heavy bitterness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DeLaChasse (1) - LUXEMBOURG - SEP 9, 2015 does not count
Coffee (and some chocolate) comes thorough nicely. Sugar does too, a little too much in the finish, but still a great beer.
