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.

McWorta (1530) - LUXEMBOURG - OCT 22, 2016
Black with a deep brown hue and a tan head. Good viscous lacings. Aromas of chocolate malts, caramel and coffee predominate with subtle hints of earthy, roasted malts and some herbal note develop. Fine carbonation slick-creamy and viscous with a full body. Sweet with a light roast bitterness. Lasting finish makes you wonder to get drunk due to the abv or hyperactive due to the coffee. Eitherway good job!

MetalNHopHead (1456) - Lincoln, Nebraska, USA - SEP 25, 2016
Well, To Øl seems to have come up with the perfect name for its huge, coffee-infused Imperial Stout. Charred barley and earthy roasted coffee aromas. Despite the big espresso-like aroma, Goliat’s flavors are actually pretty approachable. There is a bitter coffee note, but it’s quickly followed by a creaminess that compares to cappuccino and chocolate. In an afternoon with several Scandinavian Imperial Stouts this was one of my favorite.

alteregoo (986) - POLAND - SEP 10, 2016
Piana sycząca, gruba, szybko opada prawie do zera. Barwa czarna, nieprzejrzysta, z minimalnym brązową poświatą na dnie szkła. Aromat przede wszystkim świeżo palona wysokiej jakości kawa, w tle kakao, praliny, sos sojowy i wosk pszczeli. W smaku słodkie, kawowe, do tego gorzka czekolada, spora paloność, likier kawowy, cukier kandyzowany. Goryczka wysoka, tytoniowo alkoholowa, idealnie kontrująca słodycz i w rezultacie sprawiająca wrażenie, że piwo jest półsłodkie. Wysycenie średnie do niskiego, treściwe, pełne, wyklejające, ale niezbyt gęste.
Dodana kawa fantastycznie wkomponowała się w stoutową całość, tworząc bardzo przyjemną kompozycję, bardzo wyrazistą i jednocześnie zbalansowaną. Piwo ma pazura, jest też nieźle pijalne, nie czuć tu aż 10,1% ABV.

Tognetta (743) - 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.
