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.

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 (2146) - 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 (3919) - 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 (5460) - 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.

Niby wszystko na swoim miejscu, ale jednak coś w tym piwie powoduje, że nie gra .... o wiem brak mu ciała. To Ol potrafi robić piwa z masą a to się pije trochę jak sweet stouta (oczywiscie przesadzam)

mateuszk (1584) - Poznań, POLAND - JUL 16, 2015
Pitch black, beige head. Aroma of roasted malt, chocolate, licorice, some dried fruits. In taste similar, could be a bit more roasted. Medium sweet, full bodied, silky and oily on the palate. Very solid imperial stout, though little coffee for coffee stout.
