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 an opaque inky black with a small tan head and long watery legs. Smells of strong coffee and hop. Tastes of coffee, slightly acidic but balanced by bitter hop. Very delicious stout that has a lot of coffee and hop flavour.

22.03.2014. 0,375l Bottle. Vinmonopolet Kvadrat, Sandnes. Black colour with dark brown head. The head looks like foam from a nespresso machine. Aroma is black dark malts with strong roasted aromas. Very bitter with strong flavours of bitter hops. There is also some malt sweetness hidden back there. And alcohol. Lots of alcohol.

Wonderful roast of coffee and chocolate alongside some dark fruits. Perfectly balanced in sweetness, bitterness and carbonation. The smidt sensation of smokiness and roasted chocolate keeps tingling your nose long after you've emptied your glass. - with thirst, Niklas

,,, 28-02-2014 pinta (primer día de pinchado ) y botella a la vez en el lúpulo. Intensos sabores y aromas a café y maltas tostadas. Sensación alcohólica bastante intensa pero equilibrada gracias al gran sabor de las maltas. Ligeros amargos después de todo el café y tostados que persisten en boca un tiempo. Cuerpo intenso con 10.1 vol maravillosos. Color negro intenso con espuma bastante oscura que desaparece hacia la mitad. Muy muy buena. --Grifo-- sabores y aromas bastante intensos a café y tostados y maltosos todo ello bastante bien conjuntado y equilibrado. --Botella-- sabores y aromas mas contenidos y frescos al principio en frío pero con mayor sensación alcohólica y mayor amargor seco final que perdura en boca un buen rato. Sensación de licor un poco mas acentuada y paso por boca mas ligero. Final-- muy parecidas las dos al calentar, mas fina y alcohólica la botella, mas ""tosca"" y con mas sabores de cebadas la caña. Las dos son grandes e increíbles, me quedo con la botella, pero por un pelo. ,,, 08-03-2014de nuevo con ella, pierde algo de sabores tostados y quemados y gana en sensación alcohólica bastante. Sigue estando muy buena pero un poco mas por debajo de la botella. ,,, 12-03-2014 La sensación alcohólica ha bajado y aumentado los sabores quemados, tostados y sobretodo de café y mas café. Muy muy buena. ,,, 18-03-2014 Se acabo... muy concentrada con gran sensación alcohólica. El café disminuye y prácticamente es tostados muy alcohólicos.

Pitch black colour with a preatty big creamy head. Smells of heavy coffee chockolate and when i open it (at about 10º) i get som liqorice too. As it heats up more alcohol turns up. This follows in the taste but the liqorice dissapear a bit. Quite bitter too.

Beer4000 (4440) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 3, 2014
375 ml bottle @ Cardinal. Pitch black body with a small, brown head. Strong aroma of dark medium roasted malt, coffee and dark chocolate. Flavor is sweet, roasted malt, coffee, chocolate and quite bitter. Fine body and long lasting aftertaste. A nice one for sure, more balanced and expected for an imperial stout of this caliber.
