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!

Pours black, thin but solid beige head, flavors of dark chocolate, black currant, roasted bread, thick taste of chocolate malts but with a touch of freshness given by the hops, bitter finish. Very good beer, although the alcohol taste is not as well masked as Id have liked it to be. Pairs perfectly with dark chocolate 85% cocoa!

Interesting coffee stout. Big mix of coffee, cherries, chocolate and sweetness. Hard to drink a lot of this one. Finished dry and sweet. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Alphadelic (1925) - Portland, Oregon, USA - APR 16, 2015
You see,Oregon thinks its good at imperial stouts. But this,THIS, is what its all about.heady, drinkable but so deep and long lasting. The rich but smooth chocolate and malt flavors are the star. This is one great imperial stout.

Saeglopur (1053) - Vienna Woods, AUSTRIA - MAR 27, 2015
375 ml botle at home, bought about a year ago.
Black body, with a beautiful, big, dense, coffee colored head, that isnt very stable though.
Delicious aroma of coffee, wood, chocolate, vanilla, toffee, some ash, alcohol.
Tastes of coffee, wood, ash, dark chocolate, dark fruits, liquorice, some toffee, booze.
Full, creamy mouthfeel, with a soft carbonation.
Finishes alcohol warming, roasty-bitter, quite dry, but still smooth, with coffee, liquorice, smoky wood.

Delicious! Bone dry coffee notes combined with massive, roasty and sweet malts. The nose is almost perfect, while the taste is also great, but not entirely on par with the nose in my opinion. Overall a very enjoyable Coffee Stout, how I love it.
