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.

Perfetta imperial stout! Colore nero con schiuma marrone. Al naso note di soia, caffè, cioccolato e torrefatto. In bocca corpo pieno con bilanciatura dolce-amara che nasconde il grado alcolico. Sapori liquorosi di cioccolato e caffè che ricordano il liquore "Borghetti". Finale persistente e caldo. Questa è una grande imperial stout d’autore!!!

Rich, smoky aroma has a dominate note of quality coffee and hints of unsweet chocolate and licorice, plus a touch of - anchovy? It pours a deep, rich sable with a thick tan head that leaves generous lacing. Superb flavor has a core of quality roast coffee and notes of chocolate and brown sugar plus hints of licorice and burnt hops. Smooth texture has plenty of body, but lacks fizz. This is a must for Stouties - danged near perfect.

Botela. Olor muy torrefactado, aumado y algo especiado, con un toque fresco a lúpulo verde. Sabor a café, ligeramente picante con un amargor moderado impartido por el café y el lúpulo, buena persistencia. Color marrón oscuro con brillos ambariños. Cuerpo denso pero no pastoso. Magnífica cerveza, desde mi punto de vista una de las mejores dentro de su estilo.

Truly amazing beer. By far the best Imperial Stout I’ve tasted. Gonna get me another bottle for aging. Goliat was a mighty warrior (defeated, but still), and this is a mighty beer. Appearance: before opening the bottle I was almost certain it was painted black. Really, even the texture of the glass seemed like painted. Beer itself is pitch black with a thick tan / dark tan head. Great lacing. Aroma: dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malts and some nice alcohol notes in the back. A perfect combination considering the time of year. Taste: coffee and roasted malts with the first few sips, later comes dark chocolate with alcohol again. Flavours are intense and "in your face", except the alcohol notes, those are still very pleasant and warming, but doesn’t feel like a 10,1% ABV. Mouthfeel: very low carbonation, but not flat. Medium to full bodied. Overall: Outstanding Imperial Stout, a beer you have to try.

Geez, I’m hittin on all cylinders tonight; another understated powerhouse. Poured at cellar temperature with a mammoth, tan, fluffy, frothy, thick, creamy, tan head that slowly settled, & with almost total lacing. Color is an opaque brown black. Aroma is malt, coffee, roast, cocoa, weed. Flavor’s like nose, sweet is only slightly more dominant in the sweet/bitter/carbonic tang mix. Also is a little fuit. Body is soft, but cut by perfect carbonation. Finish is like flavor, fairly long and boozy. Yummmm

Pours a deep black with a dark brown head. Massive roasty coffee aromas. Taste is similar .. This is the most coffee intense beer I’ve ever had. Anal sex in a glass... This beer is damn impressive.

Hermod (3449) - Vantaa, FINLAND - FEB 28, 2012
Tap @Mikkeller Bar. Poured almost black color with a brown head. Aroma is heavily roasted and has some great coffee aroma as well. Flavor is enormous, greek coffee, frappé, roasted malt, dark fruits, sweet malt. The finish is bitter and dry with lots of coffee. Very easy to drink despite the ABV, session IS I´d say! Mind blowing. Have to get more of this.

Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Poured dark brown in colour with a thin tan head. Roasted malts and coffee in aroma. Really intensive on the nose. Loads of coffee, dark chocolate and more coffee in flavour. Aftertaste slightly bitter and once again coffee. Nice brew, more please!
