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.

coachd (582) - Missouri, USA - MAR 11, 2016
Good roasty coffee aroma with some lactose sweetness and booze. Jet black color with a huge fluffy head of brown foam. Cappuccino coffee flavor with plenty of sweetness to cut the bitterness. Very well balanced and drinkable. The palate is silky and just thick enough. This is a great offering from a Brewer that I need to try more from. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma of roasted coffee, vanilla, sweet chocolate, syrup. Pours pitch black with thick brown head, Really sweet but with an underlying coffee bitterness. Full body, creamy texture, soft carbonation and long sweet, almost syrup-like finish with coffee blended in. This is good.

1600Eman (13) - Dundee, SCOTLAND - FEB 26, 2016
Aroma- not nice, perfume hops, no coffee, sweet chemical smell. Looks great, thats where it ends. Taste follows smell, no coffee, far too hoppy for a stout, nasty cloying sweetness, no alcohol evident. great mouthfeel doesn’t make up for the taste. not a nice stout

Świetny złożony ris, troszke przeszkadzajacy alkohol i lekko za słodki(brak kontry goryczki).
