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.

RexTalionis (2958) - FINLAND - OCT 5, 2012
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!

1FastSTi (3343) - Glendale, Wisconsin, USA - MAY 11, 2013
Pours to a pitch black body with a long lasting creamy tan head. Awesome spotty lacing. Aroma is chocolate and heavy delicate coffee. Some brownie and caramel. Rich and decadent. The flavor is pretty identical in descriptors to the aroma. Very balanced and complex. The palate is rich and creamy. Thick but not sticky. Amazing!

3 am coffee beer treat. Aromas of condensed coffee syrup. Black as night. Rich smoked chocolates and coffee liquor. Aftertaste is one of the best parts: rich molasses sticky.

Grzesiek79 (3412) - Radom, POLAND - OCT 4, 2014
Niesamowity RIS. Czarny, ze srednia brazowa pianka ale utrzymujaca sie do konca degustacji. Piwo jest ciezkie i mocne, palone i bardzo kawowe. Rozgrzewajace ale akohol ukryty. Wytrawne i gozkie na koncu. Na poczatku slodowe i jakby szarlotka w tle i powidla. Niesamowite w smaku bardzo dlugo utrzymujacy sie gozkawy i kawowy posmak w ustach.

Bottle from Rehills, Newcastle. This inky black beer has ruby red highlights and pours with a thin tan head. It has rich dark chocolate, liquorice and oak flavours, chilli notes (without the heat), tart red fruit and Arabica coffee on the finish. Excellent!
