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.

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.

BeerRenter76 (834) - Texas, USA - JUL 13, 2015
Originally rated on 12/21/14. A dark brown pour yields a 1+ finger, bubbly, dark tan head with good retention. Black body with lower levels of carbonation. Aromas of roasted grain, dark chocolate, coffee, sweet cream and caramel, some oats as well. Flavors of roasted notes, coffee and oats up front. Lots of flavor for sure. Big finish of roasted grain, roasted coffee beans, oats, sweet cream and bitter dark chocolate. Good oats and roasted bitterness here, with coffee and dark chocolate rounding it out. Nice. Medium body and medium levels of carbonation.Overall this is really good, well worth checking out, recommended.

mgajdaczewa (1723) - Katowice, POLAND - NOV 19, 2015
W aromacie kawa, wanilia, czekolada deserowa, troszeczkę suszonych owoców, intensywnie i arcyprzyjemnie. W smaku zdominowane przez kawę wysokiej jakości, w stężeniu nadającym ponadprzeciętną kwaskowość, co obniżało wrażenie pełni, czyniło piwo gęste jak smoła bardziej pijalnym. Czekolada przykryta przez kawę, nieco nut waniliowych i suszonych. Mimo wysokiej kwaskowatości przyjemnie się sączyło, alkohol dobrze ukryty. Świetne, złożone piwo, aczkolwiek wolałbym ciut bardziej stonowane nuty kawy.

pours black with brown head. Beautiful beer. Aroma is roasted, delicious coffee and hints of dark chocolate. Mostly the aroma is just loads of dark roasted coffee. Flavour is coffee, heavy sweet, roasted and dark chocolate. This is a very sweet beer with loads and loads of coffee.

Kingi (625) - - FEB 6, 2016
Aroma is sugar and coffee. Black beer with a weak head. Taste is heavy cloying sweetness, lightly bitter. Palate is full body, sticky, soft carbonation, long finish with a bit of alcohol burn and a long cloying sweetness. The flavour combinations in this are just right for me.
