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!

One of my favourite coffee stouts out there, since I am a big coffee drinker. This is the beer that most resembles drinking an actual coffee. Medium body (a bit lighter than was expected) and with roasted malts and dark chocolate in the background, but coffee coffee coffee is all you can feel.

Unde (786) - Helsinki, FINLAND - DEC 24, 2015
Beer dark as night, really bold beige head which lingers for a long time. Lacing sticks after the head has diminished. Aroma has espresso coffee, licorice, dry roasted notes and dark chocolate. Taste has sweet chocolate, roasted dry malts and espresso coffee. Full oily body and low carbonation. Excellent coffee stout.

Bulk_Carrier (3419) - Lake Champlain, Vermont, USA - DEC 23, 2015
This was poured into a snifter. The appearance was a dark brown close to black color with a thin off white to tan foamy head. Stringy lacing running here and there on the glass. The smell started off with a sweet to roasty cocoa to dried coffee bean. Light vanilla slides in for the balance. The taste was mainly sweet with a moderately roasty to robust dried coffee flavor combining into the cocoa. There’s a dry coffee aftertaste and finish. On the palate, this one sat about a medium on the body with a nice sipping quality about it. Carbonation felt nice and somewhat low. Overall, as an Imperial Stout, it’s nicely done and I could definitely see myself coming back to this.

Sehr interessantes Piwo mit viel Liebe gemacht, das nicht nur von seiner Stärke lebt sonder wirklich Substanz zu bieten hat. Leicht zuckrig mit angenehmer Würze, etwas Milch und Kaffee. Befriedigend und entspannend. Feine Geschichte.

Toomio (453) - Joensuu, FINLAND - DEC 19, 2015
Yllättävän yllättävä. Kahvinen ja paahteinen. Erittäin paksu. Ei kuitenkaan yhtään maistu viinalle. Parhaita oluita pitkään aikaan.

McTapps (6350) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - DEC 18, 2015
Bottle from Rudat in Dortmund. The beer has got a dark black colour with a smooth body and steady head. Aroma of intense coffee, chocolate, malt. Taste of fresh grounded coffee, cappuccino, milk, malt, chocolate, woods, plums and dark cherries. Finishes off with rum and barrles. Wonderful delicious.

martin00sr (2389) - Haderslev, DENMARK - DEC 18, 2015
Black with tan froth. Roasted aroma, coffee, hops and dark sugar. Sweet flavour, slightly sugary/syrupy. Slightly jammy. Hoppy bitterness with coffee and notes of salty licorice. Warming alcohol. Sticky and nicely balanced.

Gluepot (359) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 13, 2015
The nose features very dark fresh ground coffee with a touch of cream. The taste is highlighted by super integration. The fresh ground coffee leads the taste profile as well, with milk chocolate and a touch of molasses, which comes out as the beer warms up.

rosenbergh (9796) - Tampere, FINLAND - DEC 13, 2015
330 ml bottle. BB 05/11/19. (Alko) Tampere, Finland.
Pitch black color with a small tan head. Black coffee, dark roast and some roasted malt in the aroma. The flavor is also pure black roasted coffee... unfortunately I can’t find much more. I’m learning to like coffee stouts but obviously I’m not there yet. Rich and thick palate.
