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!

Osprey87 (1186) - London via, WALES - APR 20, 2014
Bottle BB Jan 2017. Thick black pour into a snifter, small brown head. Aroma - sharp alcohol, some chocolatey coffee, orange and piney hops. Body is medium, a bit foamy in the mouth, touch of carbonation. Taste - initially very hoppy lime and mixed citrus, mint, coffee. Finishes ashy, burnt toast, slightly dry and astringent. I’ve had numerous IPAs that are less hoppy than this. There’s a lot to like about this one (particularly the finish) but I think it would have been better without bucket-loads of American hops.

Douberd (1719) - Arnhem, NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2014
Bottle 375 ml at home, poured into a snifter. ABV 10.1% Totally balck beer, with a tall dark brown hed, thick, with good retention, leaving medium kacing around the glass. Great aroma, lots of chocolate, coffee and mocha, as a fan of all things chocolate I find this very much to my liking. Great taste too, again plenty of chocolate and class A coffee, light vanilla, mocha, light alcohol, a bit of roasted malts on the finish and on the aftertaste. Medium thick body, god amount of carbonation. Wow, this was amazing, very tasty and drinkable, more please.

375 ml bottle @ home.March 29, 2014. Beer enjoyed from a large wineglass. Beer bought @ "Vinmonopolet Majorstuen", Oslo. Black in color with a thin brown head and medium carbonation. Aroma is coffee,roasted malt,dark sugar,dark chocolate and some alcohol. Tastes espresso,a bit sweet and also a bit crisp and vinous. The beer has a long lasting bitterness and the alcohol comes slowly when the beer warms up in my glass.A big beer.

HKdIPA (129) - HONG KONG - MAR 29, 2014
Pitch black pour with thin tan head and some lacing. Aroma is lots of coffee, roasty, hops, slight dark fruit. Coffee flavors, roast, then hoppy bitterness. Lingering boozy bitter coffee finish. Delicious stout with none of the soy/raisiny flavors characteristic of similar imperial stouts.

CacheManyHose (110) - HONG KONG - MAR 29, 2014
Pours an opaque inky black with a small tan head and long watery legs. Smells of strong coffee and hop. Tastes of coffee, slightly acidic but balanced by bitter hop. Very delicious stout that has a lot of coffee and hop flavour.
