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 black into a snifter with one finger of a light tan head. Fairly prominent lacing. Aromas of roasted malts, coffee, milk chocolate. Sweet, roasted malts and coffee, almost too sweet at times but not quite. Faint bitter presence which is nice to balance out the sweetness. Coffee comes through really nicely. Mouthfeel is thick and smooth, almost like an oatmeal stout. Pretty close to the mouthfeel I look for in a stout. Really good. Wish it came in a bigger bottle. Norway knows their stoots.

Bottle @ Nieuwjaarsborrel 2014, courtesy of me!! Pours a pitch black beer with a small beige head on top. Aroma of coffee, obviously, caramel and caramel. Flavor is very sweet, like coffee with loads of sugar Long lasting, sweet aftertaste. Some bitter flavors are present in the very aftertaste. Light cloying mouthfeel. Nice beer.

It is an almost black beer with a very nice light brown head. In the nose a great smell of coffee, roasted malts, and lot of hops. It is full bodied beer, with a low carbonation. Taste is well balanced and full, a lot of citrus from the hops and a dominant coffee taste. Medium bitterness and quite sweet, as an imperial stout should be. Overall a very good hoppy stout, love it! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours an average creamy light brown head that mostly diminishes. Body is black. Aroma contains moderate malts (dark bread, cookie, roasted and burnt malts, dark chocolate and strong coffee), light hops (flowers, lemon), light yeasts (earth, horse blanket, broth) and alcohol, grape, raisin, licorice, pepper, pineapple, apple, vanilla, cassis and cola. Flavor is light acidic, then sweet and finally bitter. Body is full with syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Great beer, subtle and complex.

ogreface (1331) - Budapest, HUNGARY - JAN 20, 2014
Csak a jó sör, Budapest. Teljesen fekete, ehhez nem fér kétség. Habja mogyoróbarna, vastag, sűrű, krémes és meglepően kitartó. Illata igen csokoládés, pörkölt magvas, vaníliás, malátás, kissé fás és kávés. Ízében sokkal jobban érezni a kávét, mint az illatában, de itt is ott a fekete csoki, sok pörköltmaláta, fás fanyarság, vanília, pirított rozskenyér és a komlógyantát is rendesen érezni benne, igen szárazan, keserűen. Sűrű, testes, moderáltan szénsavas. Utóíze keserédes, aztán átúszik keserűbe és rendkívül szárazba, kissé kormosba. Figyelemreméltó ital! Végül egy figyelmeztetés: senki ne igya meg úgy, ahogy én, lefekvés előtt, mert mindent fog az éjszaka csinálni, csak aludni nem! Nooormális?

stoutnick (378) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 20, 2014
Black and oily. Aroma is malt and coffee. Taste is dark malt and coffee syrup. Palate is sticky. Overall, bit too sweet for me, and not overly complex, but still a good drinker.
