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.

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.

Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks Tom. Pours brown black with a small beige head. Pleasant aroma of dark chocolate, coffee, mocha and roasted grains. Medium malty sweetness, more chocolate, coffee, cocoa, burnt flavors. Medium-full bodied, oily and smooth. Tasty.

rayaron (1219) - Kfar Saba, ISRAEL - MAY 28, 2016
Bottle sample at a tasting at Tom L place. Thanks Tom. Opaque black with brown head. The aroma has lots of milk chocolate, coffee, some wood and raisin. Very bitter flavor, sourish with notes of coffee, wood, some roastiness, a bit alcoholic. Oily texture, full-bodied. Nice.

Absolutely incredible beer. To the point it has got me to rate again. Big coffee flavours, sweet but also some nice added hop bitterness. An absolute must try

At a tasting, thanks, smallish bubbly brown head, very dark brown color, aromatic coffee aroma with chocolate wood and toasted bread. Intense chocolate flavor, some metalic notes. Highly enjoyable beer to linger on.

ianwelby (987) - SCOTLAND - MAY 14, 2016
Black beer, thin head, rich chocolatey malt aroma. Flavour is sweet but not sickly. Rich chocolate, tangy fruit, a dash of coffee. It’s rich and goes down far, far too easily for its strength. I could go a bit more bitterness but it’s still a great beer.

Drank 11-5-16 while writing in my diary (after squashing with Marijn and terrache chellings after the last ’Applied Ethics’ lecture). Very rich stout. Thick, lots of taste. Complex. A bit metally heavy alcohol smell, but taste is well-balanced, also chocolate.
