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.

Freshly ground coffee in aroma. Solid, thick, lasting head. Non-transparent black colour. Full-bodied, dominated by sweetness with some coffee components and coffee aftertaste. The taste reminded me of well-sugared coffee.

Samtzu (87) - Palmerston North, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 16, 2016
375ml bottle. Huge aroma full of fruit and coffee. Superb beer with a monstrous taste of malts, chocolate, fruits, and general stouty goodness.

bierkoning (12100) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUN 14, 2016
Bottle. Black. Fresh grinded coffee in the aroma. Malty very sweet flavor with caramel, coffee and roast. The aroma is very promising, but the overwhelming sweetness spoils the fun a bit.

Black with a dark brown head - Roasted malt and some hints of coffee in the aroma - Gentle roasted malt body with some coffee and some bitter tones in the back along with some alcohol heat - The roasted malt goes into the finish with some bitterness and alcohol warmth - This was good, but i expected better

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.

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.
