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.

Swaroga (1544) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JAN 13, 2015
Butelka 375ml. Średnio intensywny aromat. W ustach aksamitne co sprawie, że Goliat jest łatwy w piciu. W posmaku czai się dość intensywna nuta tytoniu i popielniczki. Istotnie wpływa na kolejne łyki czyniąc to piwo cierpkim, ziemistym i coraz mniej przyjemnym. Pomimo to jest to świetny trunek.

Pours like motor oil. Well, motor oil with a dense beige head. Dark roast coffee with a bit of chocolate and char. Mighty tasty.

Goliat pours a solid black with minimal head. It smells just like iced coffee and has a giant coffee taste. It is very strong and tastes good. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft: This is a big beer.... big, thick and in your face. The coffee sits nicely among everything else if you can manage to fight your way through. Wonderful.

A seriously rich and bitter stout. You can really smell and taste the powerful notes of raw coffee!
