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!

Bottle .375 @ w-k/freda. Black, tan head. Heavy dried & roasted coffee beans on nose, dry licorice, sweet molasses. A bit of milky oaky vanilla. Body is full, smooth, quite easy going. A bit fluffy, some chocolate milkshake- like characters. Flavourful, but not oily or too heavy though. Dry, long, finish.

madsneergaard (75) - Aalborg, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2013
Bottle. Dark as night with a roasted, tanned looking head. It simply smells up the room the second its cracked open. Coffee, chocolate, sugar. Really nicely balanced between bitter coffee notes and the sweeter components from the sugar and chocolate. Maybe some dark fruits as well. Smells great. First thing that crosses your palate is huge chocolate and coffee. The coffee lies very nicely in the background throughout the entire taste. Salty licorice, roasted/burned malts, some soy sauce and/or green coffee bean especially in the aftertaste. It totally covers your palate and mouth and has this great sticky, sugary feel on your lips. Full-bodied, however, not the biggest of the biggest. Nicely carbonated. Great, great beer from To l , again‼! Not the best Ive had from these guys but definitely a job more than well done!

DarkSideOfBeer (47) - Padova, ITALY - JAN 8, 2014
Unimponente imperial stout in cui pi sapori si scontrano uscendone in modo elegante, carbonata al punto giusto prevale una punta di liquirizia e lascia il palato alla ricerca dei vari sapori che la compongono,grado alcolico percettibile ma senza esagerare poich le spezie camuffano i 10,1 gradi alcolici..che ricorderete alla fine del bicchiere!
