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.

(Bottle). Another unique find from QuezXLV. Very rich coffee, roasted malt flavor with hop balance and warming alcohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tognetta (702) - São Paulo, BRAZIL - AUG 19, 2016
Totalmente negra, opaca, espuma marrom de formação em efeito cascata, bonito de ver, boa formação e persistência. Primeira impressão é de café verde, álcool perceptível, um expresso com vodka. No paladar dulçor intenso e medio amargor torrado. Corpo licoroso e baixa carbonatação. Final de longa persistência, leve acidez de folha de café, álcool continua evidente, não se inseriu bem no geral.

Chmielarnia. Czarne, niska beżowa piana szybko znikająca. Konsystencja oleista. Aromat intensywny kawy, lekka czekolada, praliny lekka paloność. W smaku kawa. Trochę jednowymiarowe. Wysycenie średnie. Delikatne posmaki. Pomimo zawartości alkoholu bardzo pijalne, gładki. Słodycz kontrowana palonością (niestety, troszkę za mało). Z uwagi, że legenda nie sprostała swojej wielkości ocena troszkę niższa.

Bottle from Alko. Pitch black with medium tan head. Coffee, smoke and chocolate. Very sweet with coffee and roast malt. Very smooth palate and a long, sweet finish. Perhaps a bit too sweet for my taste but a great dessert stout nevertheless.

crimson75 (190) - Gdańsk, POLAND - AUG 3, 2016
Lane, @Pułapka Aromat bardzo wyraźny, choć prawde pisząc, spodziewałem się że będzie jeszcze potężniejszy. Totalna dominacja kawy, w mniejszym stopniu praliny i czekolada, nieco paloności. Dużo więcej dzieje się w smaku, piwo jest piekielnine gęste, chyba najgestsze z jakim miałem okazję się zetknąć, przez co bardzo treściwe i ... wymagające naprawde powolnego sączenia. Jak dla mnie odrobinę zbyt słodkie, przez pod koniec byłbym daleki od nazwania go wysoce pijalnym. Nie zmienia to bardzo wysokiej oceny jako całości

eduardovl (1353) - SWITZERLAND - AUG 1, 2016
375ml bottle served in a snifter glass. A: Pours a deep oily black color forming a big, creamy and molasses brown head with very good retention forming tons of thin lingering lacings in the glass. S: Nose is amazing. Strong notes of coffee beans, dark chocolate and roasted malts. Notes of dark dry fruity, nuts, licorice and earth. Grassy hops. Hints of alcohol. T: Sweet upfront. Strong notes of coffee, dark chocolate, molasses, roasted malts, licorice, dry dark fruits, nuts and earth. Finish is dry and bitter. Grassy and herby hops profile. Maybe a bit too sweet to have a perfect bittersweet balance. M: Full and creamy body. Thick and molasses. Medium to low carbonation. Coffee, molasses and grassy aftertaste. Persistent bitterness. O: Good drinkability. Excellent Imperial Stout.

Jashiu (107) - Gdañsk, POLAND - JUL 18, 2016
Tap @Pulapka Gdansk. Aroma of coffee (straight from the coffee filter) and dark chocolate, roasted malt, carmelized sugar. Pours black with a thick, small and short in time, beige head. Tastes of coffee and dark chocolate, pretty sweet. Very full and oily. Warming alcohol feeling. Very nice, would like to see how it ages.

Flaska. Svart öl med ett beigt skum. Dofter och smaker av kaffe, rostad malt, choklad och torkad frukt. Lätt oljig munkänsla. Fyller ut kroppen väl.
