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.

Kosmokrator (803) - ITALY - APR 20, 2016
Nera ed impenetrabile con pannoso velo di schiuma marroncina. Una stout bella compatta, piena di caff, cioccolato fondente, zucchero di canna e liquirizia (soprattutto sul finale), delicatamente pungente e liquorosa che pecca un po nelle fasi centrali dove emerge un dolciastro lievissimamente acre che non mi fa impazzire. In ogni caso, una stout avvolgente e possente.

PapaVillum (826) - Valby, DENMARK - APR 14, 2016
"Sort olie"-lignende Imperial Stout med flot moccafarvet skumkrone, som langsomt svinder til kant og overflade. Rolig og ufiltreret. Ypperlig aroma af kaffe og ristet malt. Senere fremkommer noter af kage, vanille og kiks. Lidt kælderaroma. Ganske sødlig indledning, men ligeså kraftfuld og rig smag af ristet malt. Lidt for meget til den søde tand IMO uden at have en dessert at nyde den til. Ekstrem blød mundfølelse qua et veltilpasset CO2 indhold. Stor fyldig krop med cremet konsistens. Afslutningen er bitter og kort. Overall: Var meget imponeret ved første flaske nogle år siden, men nu finder jeg den for ubalanceret som "enkeltnydelse" og alene. Håndværksmæssigt OK. 37.5 cl, flaske, 10.1 % ABV, BB: 01/07/19, gave fra kollegerne i Børnehuset på Tuborgvej - tak! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle (375 ml) at home. Dark brown - almost black - with a large very dark brown head leaving good lacing. Flavors of perfumy coffee mostly but also burnt caramel, anise, brown sugar, mineral notes, boozy notes and grapes. Taste is rather sweet with a mild coffee acidity, boozy notes and mild coffee bitterness. Full body. Medium carbonation. Oily mouthfeel. Grapey and burnt caramel finish with lingering coffee presence. Im not a fan of the coffee they used for this one - or at least of the way it shows up in that beer - and I find the grapey sweetness to be a bit cloying. Otherwise, its a flavorful and rather complex coffee RIS.

Just one of the best Imperial Stouts I have ever had! Sweet smell and taste with great coffee notes. Thick mouthfeel and boozy aftertaste. I liket this version over the barrel aged by far.

lotnik23 (19) - POLAND - APR 9, 2016
Aromat kawowy, palony, intensywny. Czarne nieprzejrzysta. Piana koloru beżowego pozostawiająca ładną koronkę. W smaku słodkie, gęste dobrze skontrowane goryczką. Dominuje kawa. Nagazowanie słabe idealnie pasujące do piwa.

allanmb (101) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 9, 2016
Pours black with good tan head. Aroma of coffee, vanilla and chocolate. Quite sweet on the nose. Taste of molasses, cherry and Berry fruits before the coffee takes over hugely. Quite high carbonation for the style. Finish is quite sweet and mild bitter with a touch of smoke

Tap at world of beer sugar land. Black black black with a big frothy brown head that laces heavily. Aroma of coffee, molasses, chocolate milk, and far fruits. Taste is huge and rich; sweet and roasty and bitter. Medium-full bodied and creamy. Amazing good.
