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.

En riktigt bra l som passar utomordentligt bra till en mrk choklad, 70% eller 86%.

Serapac (210) - CZECH REPUBLIC - FEB 19, 2015
Bottle. Black, medium brown head. Aroma freshly ground coffee. Full body. Taste chocolate, malts. Somewhat hoppy finish, interesting in a stout. Very complex and nice overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cam_Dynamite (82) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 19, 2015
Bottle from mane, aged about 8 months. Harsh but fair. Pours dark as the night with a small light tan head. Aroma is chocolate, herbal, coffee. Taste is really balanced for mine, coffee, dark chocolate, cocoa, raisins, vegemite. I still prefer the barrel aged, but this a pleasantly fierce f*cker!

Maakun (1242) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2015
UPDATED: FEB 17, 2015 Bottle at home. Black with medium sized beige head. Coffee, bitter unripe fruits, nuts, palm sugar, very boozy, cocoa powder, flowery, black currant. Medium sweet with bitter coffee/vegetal finish. Full bodied with quite some alcohol. Nice stuff, slightly too alcoholic for me.

ShivanDragon (2070) - Leeuwarden, NETHERLANDS - FEB 15, 2015
schenkt zwart met schuimige plakkende bruine kraag. Aroma van werkelijk een ENORME bak koffie, suiker/zoet, vanille. Smaken zijn redelijk zoet, vanille, alcohol, zwak bitter (koffie), sterke smaken, zowel in het aroma als in de smaken is de koffie gewoonweg vl te overdreven, dit is dan voor mij ook geen bier meer... als ik zoiets wil proeven ga ik wel naar de Douwe Egberts koffie winkel.... voor mij denk ik wel de slechtste Imperial Stout die ik heb geproefd.... had ik al verteld dat je beter een bak koffie kunt nemen, is vast veel goedkoper dan deze shit.... SLECHTE stout, redelijk bakje koffie !!!!

Gurthnar (2726) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - FEB 15, 2015
Bottle. Lots of dark malt in aroma, coffee, burnt, ash. Clear very dark colour. Taste has balanced sweetness and bitterness, some caramel, but rather lots of dark notes. Also some fruitiness, dried, etc. Very good, but short of excellence.

PabloZab (390) - Wroclaw, POLAND - FEB 11, 2015
Ciemno brunatna barwa z gesta bezowa piana. Aromat kawowy, palony, lekki alkohol po ogrzaniu. Piwo tresciwe, kawowe, slodkawe, pije sie przyjemnie ale czuc moc piwa.
