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.

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.

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.

MMJL (359) - Gliwice, POLAND - MAR 17, 2016
W zapachu z butelki kawa, sos sojowy. Piana wysoka, drobna, jasnobrązowa. W barwie piwo czarne, całkowicie nieprzejrzyste. W aromacie ze szkła intensywna świeżo parzona kawa, paloność, rodzynki, śliwka suszona, sos sojowy, maggi. W smaku paloność, słodycz, rodzynki, kawowa kwaskowość. Intensywna goryczka - i chmielowa i palona. Długi posmak. W odczuciu pełne, ciężkie. Lekki alkohol - grzejący, miły.

Iznogud (1943) - CROATIA - MAR 19, 2016
Bottle, 375 ml from Svijet Piva. Shared with Miro and JFK10000. Pours black with medium brown head. Roasted, burnt coffee, loads of it. Roasted malts, chocolate, some dark fruit notes, but all overwhelmed with coffee. Sweet with some sourish notes. Not balanced and bit extreme on the coffee side, but I like it that way.

Descomunal imperial stout, con un delicioso olor a café. Sin embargo es sedosa y muy bebible. Una de las grandes de una marca que nunca defrauda.
