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.

Pours like motor oil. Well, motor oil with a dense beige head. Dark roast coffee with a bit of chocolate and char. Mighty tasty.

Goliat pours a solid black with minimal head. It smells just like iced coffee and has a giant coffee taste. It is very strong and tastes good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft: This is a big beer.... big, thick and in your face. The coffee sits nicely among everything else if you can manage to fight your way through. Wonderful.

Svesse (6634) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - JAN 2, 2015
(Bottle, Stockholm Beer Festival, 27 Sep 2014) Black colour with frothy, brown head. Malty, roasted nose with sweet espresso, dark chocolate and muscovado sugar. Malty, roasted taste with notes of strong sweet coffee, dark chocolate, a touch of soy sauce, dark fruit and a fairly sweet finish with a generous coffee bitterness. Full body, oily mouthfeel, with a certain sweetness. Quite powerful, with lots of black coffee. Excellent beer!

The bottle one more minimalist and feels very eternal. Beer is very oily in appearance, taste of caramel, with the aftertaste of coffee and bitters. Good beer, but nevertheless does not outweigh their prices (in comparison with some a few cheaper American imperial stouts).

ericdevin (961) - Eugene, Oregon, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Bottle from Belmont Station, Portland. Pours very dark, little bit of head. Aroma stone fruit, coffee, lacto. Body slightly tart, with some roasted coffee notes as well. Decent bitter roasted character to finish. Good but definitely oxidized.

nimbleprop (5317) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 26, 2014
375ml bottle pours a very murky, opaque black with some creamy, beige head. Nose has fresh coffee bean, reminded me a bit of the fruity beans that come out of barrels, some wet earth, licorice, mild booze, some cola, some raisin, but mostly just nice/approachable coffee bean. Flavor has some more complexity, molasses, licorice, some distinct char, roasted malt, coffee beans, cola, some barbeque sauce, some plum, a little duck sauce, a little black cherry. Interestingly, a lot of the flavors can also be found in high end coffee bean. Full bodied, lightly hot finish.
