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

Bottle at bar. Served way too cold. Poured a clear dark brown with a brown head. Nose has nuts, roasted coffee, licorice, Turkish pepper. Tastes medium sweet (dark sugar?) and medium bitter with a coffee mouth feel. Solid non-watery, very drinkable. Wish I had time to get it to the right temperature before enjoying.

Bottle poured into a brandy snifter. The beer is a dark brown to black with a huge khaki head of foam. It took quite awhile to pour this beer. The aroma has a tone of fresh ground coffee and some chocolate sweetness. Mostly coffee bitterness in the taste, but some sweetness in there as well. Finishes bitter and roasty. Thick mouthfeel and plenty of body. Moderate carbonation. Really quite good.

Black with lasting brown head. Aroma of espresso, which dominates the taste as well. Very smooth almost creamy. The bitterness of the coffee and the roasted malts stays consistent until a glorious bitter finish. Fantastic beer.

From old notes. First time I had this was from tap at Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2012. I had it again some times from tap and from bottle. Black color with brown head. Roasted malty aroma, lot of coffee, some chocolate, light dark fruits. Sweet and bitter taste like aroma, with vanilla and mocha notes. Full creamy body with soft carbonation.

Butelka, warka do 26/06/18. Bardzo ladne piwo - geste juz przy nalewaniu, z drobna piana drobnopecherzykowa, ktora niestety dosc szybko redukuje sie do obraczki. Aromaty faktycznie glownie kawowe, ale tez palone, sliwkowe, czekoladowe, lekki alkohol. W smaku slodycz, kwaskowatosc, alkohol, to co w aromacie jest. Gesty, tresciwy, nisko wysycony, przyjemnie rozgrzewajacy. posmaki jakies takie tytoniowe, goryczka wcale nie niska, choc moze to polaczenie z alkoholem. Bardzo dobre sumarycznie, a nawet lepiej, ale zarazem bez efektu wow tzn łał ;)
