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.

jc1762 (230) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 7, 2015
Poured into a teku glass showing pitch black with half a finger of coffee foam that also lines the glass as I swirl. Abundant aromas of cacao and fresh roasted coffee beans with hints of caramel and toffee. Faint notes of molasses. Medium bodied, smooth, and evenly carbonated. The first impression shows cacao nibs or chocolate shavings. Then a mid palate of slight alcohol burn followed by a moderately strong coffee bitterness. The bitterness seems to be balanced out by the casconade sugar as it doesnt overwhelm. More importantly, the sugar still keeps this big stout dry and clean - there is no excessive bitterness. As such, no note is out of place and plays a wonderful number on the palate.

Procent (312) - POLAND - FEB 7, 2015
W aromacie głwnie kawa, poza tym nuty likierowe, nieco czekolady. Aromat jest dość intensywny, ale nie ostry, raczej zbalansowany. Barwa ciemnobrązowa, prawie czarna, piana średnia jak na RISa, ciemnobeżowa, ładna. W smaku palone, kawowe, gorzka czekolada. Bardzo aksamitne, zbalansowane, nie ma za dużo słodyczy, goryczka wysoka, ale mimo wszystko w tle jest bogato, dużo ciała, wysycenie średnie. Bardzo dobre.

SinH4 (1089) - Garching, Bavaria, GERMANY - JAN 27, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 21, 2015 Black color with a small beige head. Coffee, chocolate, vanilla, a bit boozy. Taste is more coffee, chocolate, vanilla as expected, with a very pleasant alcohol burn. Thick mouthfeel, but not overwhelming. Rich warming chocolate finish. Nice oatmeal feeling. Really good. Just like an Imperial Stout should be, this is a good reference.

Bottle shared at a tasting at Maxs place. Black with a nice brown head. Lovely biog roasty aroma with lots of coffee, some dark chocolate and an alcohol note. Slightly sweetish and slightly acidic flavor, burnt, with lots of coffee and a bitter finish. Thick full body. Great stuff.

Swaroga (1761) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 13, 2015
Butelka 375ml. Średnio intensywny aromat. W ustach aksamitne co sprawie, że Goliat jest łatwy w piciu. W posmaku czai się dość intensywna nuta tytoniu i popielniczki. Istotnie wpływa na kolejne łyki czyniąc to piwo cierpkim, ziemistym i coraz mniej przyjemnym. Pomimo to jest to świetny trunek.
