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.

Overwhelmingly intense coffee stout. True espresso in the aftertaste. Well balanced and nice scidity which makes it quite easily drinkable. Hides the 10% very well. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours black, thick. Big brown head, slowly sinking. Aruma of roasted malts, coffe, nuts chocolate. Smells balanced. Not oversweet. Taste: Nice! Perfectly well balanced between the roasted barley, the coffe, the chocolate. Not too sweet. Can understand why To Øl is rated best brewery in Scandinavia. Perfect thickness. Want more. Nice beer.

UPDATED: FEB 6, 2016 ,,, 28-02-2014 pinta (primer día de pinchado ) y botella a la vez en el lúpulo. Intensos sabores y aromas a café y maltas tostadas. Sensación alcohólica bastante intensa pero equilibrada gracias al gran sabor de las maltas. Ligeros amargos después de todo el café y tostados que persisten en boca un tiempo. Cuerpo intenso con 10.1 vol maravillosos. Color negro intenso con espuma bastante oscura que desaparece hacia la mitad. Muy muy buena. --Grifo-- sabores y aromas bastante intensos a café y tostados y maltosos todo ello bastante bien conjuntado y equilibrado. --Botella-- sabores y aromas mas contenidos y frescos al principio en frío pero con mayor sensación alcohólica y mayor amargor seco final que perdura en boca un buen rato. Sensación de licor un poco mas acentuada y paso por boca mas ligero. Final-- muy parecidas las dos al calentar, mas fina y alcohólica la botella, mas ""tosca"" y con mas sabores de cebadas la caña.Las dos son grandes e increíbles, me quedo con la botella, pero por un pelo.,,, 08-03-2014de nuevo con ella, pierde algo de sabores tostados y quemados y gana en sensación alcohólica bastante. Sigue estando muy buena pero un poco mas por debajo de la botella.,,, 12-03-2014 La sensación alcohólica ha bajado y aumentado los sabores quemados, tostados y sobretodo de café y mas café. Muy muy buena. ,,, 18-03-2014 Se acabo... muy concentrada con gran sensación alcohólica. El café disminuye y prácticamente es tostados muy alcohólicos. ............ Pinta en Cimmeria 06..02..2016 de nuevo nos vemos.... 2 día de pinchado. Negro intenso con espuma fina oscura y persistente. Gran sabor a maltas tostadas, algo quemadas con una sobredosis de café y achicorias acabando con amargo final ligeramente seco y duradero. Perfecta combinación de sabores muy equilibrados y con un cuerpo pastoso fino y sedoso, todo ello aderezado con una buena sensación alcohólica de principio a fin de 10.1 vol. Inmensa....

Black pour with a thickish brown head.Roasty, burnt brown sugar, coffee, cocoa. Sweet up front, then a beefy, roasty kick, cocoa, raisin, coffee. Finishes dry, slight coffee bitterness. Awesome.

Poured into a teku glass showing pitch black with half a finger of coffee foam that also lines the glass as I swirl. Abundant aromas of cacao and fresh roasted coffee beans with hints of caramel and toffee. Faint notes of molasses. Medium bodied, smooth, and evenly carbonated. The first impression shows cacao nibs or chocolate shavings. Then a mid palate of slight alcohol burn followed by a moderately strong coffee bitterness. The bitterness seems to be balanced out by the casconade sugar as it doesn’t overwhelm. More importantly, the sugar still keeps this big stout dry and clean - there is no excessive bitterness. As such, no note is out of place and plays a wonderful number on the palate.

Bottle. Black, medium brown head. Aroma freshly ground coffee. Full body. Taste chocolate, malts. Somewhat hoppy finish, interesting in a stout. Very complex and nice overall. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
