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.

madsneergaard (75) - Aalborg, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2013
Bottle. Dark as night with a roasted, tanned looking head. It simply smells up the room the second it’s cracked open. Coffee, chocolate, sugar. Really nicely balanced between bitter coffee notes and the sweeter components from the sugar and chocolate. Maybe some dark fruits as well. Smells great. First thing that crosses your palate is huge chocolate and coffee. The coffee lies very nicely in the background throughout the entire taste. Salty licorice, roasted/burned malts, some soy sauce and/or green coffee bean especially in the aftertaste. It totally covers your palate and mouth and has this great sticky, sugary feel on your lips. Full-bodied, however, not the biggest of the biggest. Nicely carbonated. Great, great beer from To Øl , again‼! Not the best I’ve had from these guys but definitely a job more than well done!

Niall73 (1774) - Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2013
Tap at London Craft Beer Festival. Pours a dense black/brown. A big beer to be sure. Boozy, sweet with coffee, choc and licorice and a medicinal pepto bismol edge to it. It’s a bit meaty too. Good.

sebletitje (6678) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 15, 2013
Bouteille 37.5cl, BB 10-01-2017. Brun profond, col épais crémeux moka, le tut donnant un léger doré au verre. Arôme se note dès l’ouverture qui laisse s’échapper un bouquet charge en malts et en café. Note également des notes de caramel et chocolat qui sont ponctuées par ce côté prononcé de cassonade. A cela s’ajoute une pointe discrète des houblons qui eux donnent une balance citronnée - herbacé et fleuri en rétro-nasal. Palais donne le ton de suite par un profil alcoolisé prononcé. Le tout est sec avec un torréfié certain. Le palais reste terreux et sec avec un chocolaté intense suivi par une amertume des houblons qui procure balance et pointe de citronné. L’usage du café reste agréable sans pour cela dominer, il en va de même pour le sucre cassonade. Cette bière est en effet un goliat à terminer seul.

Obviously this was delicious. And there’s plenty of it. Dunno - missing x-factor, reminding me of how I felt about Nogne-O’s Impy. Dan?
