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.

Nera con riflessi caramello, schiuma nocciola di buona persistenza. Aroma prevalente di caffè, zucchero di canna, cappuccino, note legnose. Al palato dolce ma non stucchevole, sempre caffè e cappuccino, zucchero di canna, finale legnoso e tostato, lievissime note di cacao. Corpo pieno, ben carbonata, texture oleosa.

Iznogud (2048) - CROATIA - MAR 19, 2016
Bottle, 375 ml from Svijet Piva. Shared with Miro and JFK10000. Pours black with medium brown head. Roasted, burnt coffee, loads of it. Roasted malts, chocolate, some dark fruit notes, but all overwhelmed with coffee. Sweet with some sourish notes. Not balanced and bit extreme on the coffee side, but I like it that way.

Lambister (425) - FINLAND - MAR 19, 2016
Bottle from our lovely monopoly. A pitch black beer with dark brown head. Nose has fresh coffee beans, roasted malt, and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of alcohol, wood, coffee, and roasted malt, leading to a bitter, roasted coffee finish. Really delicious and balanced.

gEUS (1685) - Linden, BELGIUM - MAR 18, 2016
Vottle at home. Incredible aroma of sweet coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, green paprica. Sticky sweet and creamy body, a tad over the top. Flavour is that typical Proef Stout backbone, with additional coffee.

AirForceHops (5860) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 18, 2016
Draft at The Happy Raven, Lincoln, Nebraska. The coffee is bold lingering for days. Deep dark chocolate, deep ash. The body is full and creamy with a smooth Velvet mouthfeel. Very nice construction of this imperial stout.

Batavi (326) - Waalwijk, NETHERLANDS - MAR 18, 2016
Fles gekocht bij Vinotake in Waalwijk, uitgeschonken in een To Øl teku glas. Zwart van kleur, met een compacte stevige bruine schuimkraag. Het aroma heeft zeer veel tonen van koffie, vers gebrande koffiebonen, aangevuld met notities van donkere chocolade, karamel, donker fruit, geroosterde mout, verder ook verassende licht zurige en aardachtige tonen. Het smaakpallet is zoet, zuur en bitter en wordt grotendeels gedragen door de koffie, aardachtige, licht zurige en bittere tonen van koffie, in de vorm van vers gebrande koffiebonen, cappuccino, espresso en koffielikeur. Verder chocolade, karamel en zurige aardachtige tonen. Het mondgevoel is romig met een zachte carbonatie. Ook deze Goliat is een prachtig bier van To Øl de iets zurige tonen voorkomen een hogere score voor mij, Ik ben ook benieuwd naar de bourbon BA Goliat, die ik ook nog heb staan. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

MMJL (376) - Gliwice, POLAND - MAR 17, 2016
W zapachu z butelki kawa, sos sojowy. Piana wysoka, drobna, jasnobrązowa. W barwie piwo czarne, całkowicie nieprzejrzyste. W aromacie ze szkła intensywna świeżo parzona kawa, paloność, rodzynki, śliwka suszona, sos sojowy, maggi. W smaku paloność, słodycz, rodzynki, kawowa kwaskowość. Intensywna goryczka - i chmielowa i palona. Długi posmak. W odczuciu pełne, ciężkie. Lekki alkohol - grzejący, miły.

KoNrRiI (1093) - Århus, DENMARK - MAR 15, 2016
0.375 bottle. Black in color with a small, thick, creamy, tanned head. Strong aroma of coffee, roasted malts, hints of lactose, some earthy tones, toffee, and vanilla - an amazing combination. Taste is obviously strongly marked by coffee but it does not entirely dominate the sensation like in most beers with this adjunct. The taste is replete with dark fruits, chocolate, some gingerbread, a bit of nuts too. A full body, a thick texture, and an almost flat carbonation. Finish is long, fruitier than the rest and definitely sweet. Overall, the beer is marvelous, its richness and complexity stand out from the crowd of imperial stouts whose brewers thought that dumping a bag of coffee into the tank would somehow be beneficial. Instead, although noticeable, coffee does not necessarily play the first fiddle here and a few other players come to the fore.

jamestulloch (3201) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 13, 2016
Keg at Usher’s. Black body with a dense tan head. Excellent lacing. Aroma of espresso, raisins and dark chocolate. Flavour of chocolate ice-cream, nuts, roasted malt and coffee. Medium body with a powdery mouthfeel. Soft fizz. Sumptuous.
