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.

Ecpresso like aroma. The taste is a little different. Strong coffee flavour with some hints of chocolate and smoke. Dry and a little bitter finish.

330 ml bottle. Black, with a creamy brown head. Roasted malty aroma, plenty of coffee, sweetish chocolate notes. The flavour is sweetish, roasted malty, with coffee, and fruity and cocoa notes. Sweet finish of coffee, with a little alcohol warmth and moderate bitteness. Smooth and pleasant.

mgajdaczewa (1136) - Katowice, POLAND - NOV 19, 2015
W aromacie kawa, wanilia, czekolada deserowa, troszeczkę suszonych owoców, intensywnie i arcyprzyjemnie. W smaku zdominowane przez kawę wysokiej jakości, w stężeniu nadającym ponadprzeciętną kwaskowość, co obniżało wrażenie pełni, czyniło piwo gęste jak smoła bardziej pijalnym. Czekolada przykryta przez kawę, nieco nut waniliowych i suszonych. Mimo wysokiej kwaskowatości przyjemnie się sączyło, alkohol dobrze ukryty. Świetne, złożone piwo, aczkolwiek wolałbym ciut bardziej stonowane nuty kawy.

Manslow (597) - Warsaw, POLAND - NOV 5, 2015
Butelka zakupiona w Warszawie 0,5l. Kolor czarny wspaniały, gęsty tak jak i piana ciemnobrązowa zostawiająca na ściankach liczne ślady. Aromat czekolady i kawy, smak karmel, kakao i znowu dużo kawy i czekolady. Alkohol 10,1%niewyczuwalny ale daje moc. Goryczka średnia super wysycenie. Piwo genialne!

12.7 oz bottle. Euro roast malt. Very bittersweet chocolate. Not getting coffee as a featured flavor. Little to traditional russian imperial for my taste.

yourilevesque (703) - Quebec, CANADA - OCT 20, 2015
Un stout impérial digne de ce nom. La bière fut dégustée en comparaison avec son homologue vieillie en fût de bourbon. Lorsque la Goliat est chargée en café, riche, onctueuse et crémeuse, la bière vieillie en fût de bourbon est unidimensionnelle. La GIS BA ne laissant presque aucune trace sur le verre, la GIS laisse de riches et onctueux lacings derrière elle. Alors que la GIS BA semble quasiment sèche et mince, la GIS est ronde et ample. Je reçois des arômes de café sur une base malté, torréfiée, maltés à souhait et séduisante. La version BA est beaucoup plus mince, acide, étroite et impatiente. La version BA me paraît téméraire, impatiente, jeune, juvénile. La Goliat pour sa part me semble beaucoup mieux balancée par un alcool bien mieux dissimulé et une torréfaction des mieux réussies. Une comparaison des plus intéressantes!
