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.

375ml bottle in a snifter. Pours black with a lacy, tan head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, hints of smokiness and dark chocolate, some dough, and floral hops. Flavor the same, with a weird coffee note at the end. Thicker texture. A good beer, but I am not sure the coffee really adds to this beer.

Bottle from Belmont Station, Portland. Pours very dark, little bit of head. Aroma stone fruit, coffee, lacto. Body slightly tart, with some roasted coffee notes as well. Decent bitter roasted character to finish. Good but definitely oxidized.

nimbleprop (5226) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - DEC 26, 2014
375ml bottle pours a very murky, opaque black with some creamy, beige head. Nose has fresh coffee bean, reminded me a bit of the fruity beans that come out of barrels, some wet earth, licorice, mild booze, some cola, some raisin, but mostly just nice/approachable coffee bean. Flavor has some more complexity, molasses, licorice, some distinct char, roasted malt, coffee beans, cola, some barbeque sauce, some plum, a little duck sauce, a little black cherry. Interestingly, a lot of the flavors can also be found in high end coffee bean. Full bodied, lightly hot finish.

Beerenberger (1538) - Fischer, Texas, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Nose of coffee, chocolate, and pine. A thick brownish-black pour with a lasting large rocky cappincino hued head and loads of lacing. The taste is overall bitter - coffee, dark chocolate, hints of molasses and piney finish. Full body and medium carbonation. Bitter but rounded mouthfeel. In conclusion, this is a robust well crafted beer that was enjoyed after an evening meal.
