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!

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.

Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Nose of coffee, chocolate, and pine. A thick brownish-black pour with a lasting large rocky cappincino hued head and loads of lacing. The taste is overall bitter - coffee, dark chocolate, hints of molasses and piney finish. Full body and medium carbonation. Bitter but rounded mouthfeel. In conclusion, this is a robust well crafted beer that was enjoyed after an evening meal.

Ferris (4959) - Burnaby, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 3, 2014
Bottle - Dark roast coffee, roast malts, licorice and more roast coffee. Jet black with a rich brown head. Huge roast and espresso bean. A light sweetness along with the roast evens it out a bit.

CapFlu (4608) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 22, 2014
Pours a lasting beige frothy head atop an opaque body. Nose of coffee with a peach background. Very sweet, figs, soya sauce, cocoa powder and alcoholic cider. Bizarre. Purchased a Metro Liquor in Saanich.

flemmingwillum (1033) - Nysted, DENMARK - NOV 15, 2014
Rating #1021, flaske fra Toft Vin. Sort øl med flot brunt skum. Ond duft med masser af ristet malt og kaffegrums. Let humle, citrongræs og alkohol. Voldsom smag af sød chokolade, kaffe, let alkohol og nogen citrus. Eftersmag med alkohol, kaffegrums meget bitterhumle... Lækkert. Tyk og cremet.

Sjohnh (240) - Coventry, West Midlands, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2014
Deep and dark with a small beige head. Big coffee smell with fruits sitting just behind it. Thick and creamy. Flavours include coffee, dark chocolate, vanilla, dark fruits, sour cherry, liquorice. Oats then come through, and a sharp bite that comes across like chilli but may be just the alcohol. Superb.

GlasgowTAD (126) - Glasgow/Aberdeen, SCOTLAND - NOV 13, 2014
Pours black with a foamy browny head that promptly dissipates. Aroma is brown sugar, espresso and light dates. Taste sweet, coffee, slight liquorice with a medium sugary coffee finish. Quite sweet like an Oatmeal stout, as the ingredients list would have you believe.A touch of alcohol warmth makes this damn tasty. Good body, not too watery not too thick.

Vestergaard (452) - Aarhus C, DENMARK - NOV 12, 2014
Bottle. Pours black with a small, tan head. Aroma has burned sugar, chocolate, roasted coffee and salmiak licorice. Taste is fairly sweet and sugary up fronts, but turns over to a dark, roasted bitterness with coffee and licorice. Full body and medium low carbonation. Slight oatmeal. Delicious!

Fantastic. Does the job with style. Expertly brewed and tastes like heaven. Come to the dark side.
