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!

caesar (4895) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2013
Tap @ Beer Temple. Dark color, medium brown head. Aroma of loads of coffee, roasted malt, chocolat. Nice spicy coffee which blends very nicely with the roasted malts from the base beer, the coffee is quite present but never overpowers the base beer. Soft bitter taste, medium sweetness. Full bodied. Very nice stuff.

Shared 375 ml bottle, thanks to Ole Anders. Pitch black colour, moderate tan head. Strong roasty aroma of coffee and wood, a hint of ashes. Even more distinct roasty and coffee notes in the flavour, quite dry, woody and ashy.
