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. Jet black with a 2 finger mocha colored head. Aroma is chocolate, molasses, roasted malt and a hint of vanilla. Not picking up any coffee there. Coffee comes to the forefront in the taste, supported by chocolate, roasted malt and a solid alcoholic burn. Rich, oily, chewy palate. This is awesome.

Bottle. Black body with a small brown head. Strong roasty aroma with dark sugar and flowery hops. Massive espresso and chocolate taste, clean, mild alcohol, robust bitterness, strong warm roasted aftertaste with faint earthy hops. A nice no-nonsense IS.

vanelst (142) - AUSTRIA - SEP 4, 2014
Aroma of coffee (duh), dark chocolate, dark fruits and roasted malts. Taste is sweet (brown sugarish, vanilla) with a bitter and long lasting ending (hops and coffee). An Imperial to cherish.
