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.

Amazing beer. Had on tap at Jester king and this killed all of their offerings. Aroma is blend of coffee Imp stout and hint of old ale in stone fruits and vinous-ness. Appearance is BLACK with a nice tan big head which really brings the aromas right to your nasal doorstep. Taste is nose but the coffee bitterness swaps places with the old ale influences making it a kind of old ale Imp stout with hints of coffee. Palate is thick and wonderful. A great beer.

HammerTroll (742) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 26, 2015
Pitch black color, small tan head. Aroma of coffee, chocolate, roasted malt and wood. Taste is just too great. Wonderful coffee, even more cocoa, a liquid 99% of cocoa chocolate. Extremely long and extremely cocoa bitter finish, just delightful. Full body, soft carbonation, creamy texture. Im in love!

Crispy34 (442) - Texas, USA - MAY 24, 2015
Bottle. Aroma is sweet and dry black malt with some coffee roast. Appearance is black with a tan head. Taste is coffee off the bat that leads into sweetness with hint of dark roast that takes over after the sweetness is gone. The roast flavor is not overpowering like most stouts. Very well done beer. Palate is dark with an almost creamy mouthfeel. Overall, this is the best coffee stout I can ever remember trying. Buy it if you see it. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

King_Alex_II (442) - SWITZERLAND - MAY 24, 2015
Pitch black color with milk coffee colored foam. The smell is dominated by more coffee and a little chocolate afterwards. The taste is super smooth, foamy carbonated, has coffee, chocolate and caramel and basically keep screaming "Im the imperial stout benchmark". Dry and satisfying aftertaste that rounds up the beer. I dont like coffee, but this is a pretty great beer, even though I had coffee heavy stouts that I liked more.

domienS (213) - Oostakker, BELGIUM - MAY 23, 2015
Pours a black beer with a big beige head. Smells of coffee, chocolate, black malts. Tastes malt bitter, lactose, with a sweet hint from the cassonade sugar. Mouthfeel is big, alcoholic. Aftertaste is malty bitter and finishes with a sweet touch. Great beer for big stout lovers!

marthares (51) - - MAY 7, 2015
Pours black, thin but solid beige head, flavors of dark chocolate, black currant, roasted bread, thick taste of chocolate malts but with a touch of freshness given by the hops, bitter finish. Very good beer, although the alcohol taste is not as well masked as Id have liked it to be. Pairs perfectly with dark chocolate 85% cocoa!

Interesting coffee stout. Big mix of coffee, cherries, chocolate and sweetness. Hard to drink a lot of this one. Finished dry and sweet. Not bad. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
