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.

JanLaursen (3159) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2012
Draught sample at Toft Vin, Copenhagen: Pours black with a huge, creamy tan head. Roasted malty coffee and chocolate aroma. Taste is sweet, creamy, roasted and bitter. Lots of sweet coffe orasted coffee flavor with hints of chocolate and grafruit, probably from the hops. Full body, creamy smooth texture, sweetish bitter roasted coffee finish. I was told by one of the brewers that the coffee is much more powerfull and overwhelming in the bottled version. Bought a bottle. I’m looking forward to drinkin’ it.

phredrik (1010) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - MAY 12, 2012
Tap @ CBC. Black pour with a nice light brown head. Aroma is full of coffee, like fresh grounded beans, fruity like coffee berries, lots of citrusy hops. Some nice maltiness with chocolate, figs, tar. A hint of earthines and a nice sweet vanilla component. Taste is thick and sweet at first with s lot of chocolate, caramel and dark berries. Then a good shot of fruity coffee af loads os bitterness, both from the coffee and from the buckets of hops that went in here. Nice vanilla note in the back, ending in earthy coffee and bitter grapefruit. This us exactly as good as I was hoping it would be. Nice job Tobias and Tore!

Draft at CBC. Pours black with a beige head. Massive chocolate, roasted aroma with some chocolate and coffee. The coffee comes out more in the flavour along with the other aspects of the aroma and some vanilla. Medium bodied with soft carbonation and an oily mouthfeel. Great beer!

UPDATED: MAR 1, 2013 Deep black body with a healthy creamy tan head. Rich coffee espresso and chocolate head. Flavor is even more profound with bitter coffee and dark chocolate complementing creamy milk chocolate and caramel notes. Full bodied with appropriate carbonation. Semi-dry finish. Impressive.
