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.

Zlotta (2083) - Hagen, GERMANY - MAY 5, 2016
0.375 l bottle from ’Saveur Bière’, best before November 2019. Pitch black with a medium large, creamy, almost stable, light brown head. Sweetish-malty, roasty and slightly fruity aroma of coffee powder, dark chocolate, cocoa and red berries. Sweet, malty, slightly roasty and a little fruity taste of milk coffee, milk chocolate, cocoa, some vanilla and hints of red berries, followed by a medium long, medium roasty-bitter finish. Full body, very creamy and viscid mouthfeel, soft carbonation. Great dessert beer!

On tap at Kaschk, Berlin. Black with thin tanned head. Coffee, espresso, bitter chocolate, vanilla (?) and roasted malt. Big toasted body with light warming alcohol. The bitter coffee almost gets a sour touch. Dry with medium bitterness and low carbonation. Nice!

Descomunal imperial stout, con un delicioso olor a café. Sin embargo es sedosa y muy bebible. Una de las grandes de una marca que nunca defrauda.

nickd717 (4160) - San Francisco, California, USA - APR 21, 2016
500ml bottle from 100 Beers. Black in color with a small tan head. The aroma is sweet coffee, roast, dark chocolate, toffee, and molasses. Sweet flavor, very roasty bitter coffee notes. Bitter on the finish. Hides the booze pretty well. Medium-full body with a dry, sharp mouthfeel yet some sugary slickness. Classic well-done Euro imperial coffee stout.

Kosmokrator (849) - ITALY - APR 20, 2016
Nera ed impenetrabile con pannoso velo di schiuma marroncina. Una stout bella compatta, piena di caffè, 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.
