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.

Aroma is sugar and coffee. Black beer with a weak head. Taste is heavy cloying sweetness, lightly bitter. Palate is full body, sticky, soft carbonation, long finish with a bit of alcohol burn and a long cloying sweetness. The flavour combinations in this are just right for me.

Dark black. Distinct smell. Sweet coffee. Thick. Lots of tan lacing. I havent tasted anything like this. Creamy. Toffee. Tastes like candy made out of coffee. I’d buy that candy if it existed.

375ml bottle from Brewdog Online Shop. Pours jet black with a thick tan head. Strong coffee and dark malt aromas. Taste is more strong coffee, sweet dark chocolate. Long roasted bitter finish. Easy drinking for the strength.

375 mL bottle shared with ebone1988. The pour is a lighter black color with a large off khaki head and a decent bit of soapy lace. The aroma is bitter up front. There is a lot of earthy hops and a lingering roasty bitterness. The chocolate falls off and this thing is just bitter. The flavor is really complex. There are three different, distinct levels of bitter. The roasted malt is first, backed up by the coffee, and then wrapped up with the chocolate. There is a light sweet mocha that's detectable before the bitter chocolate takes over. The mouth feel is excellent. There is a thick viscosity and a wonderful creamy carbonation. The aftertaste is lingeringly bitter chocolate and light coffee. Really complex and well done. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Biroholik (215) - Sosnowiec, Poland, POLAND - JAN 17, 2016
Kolor: Czarny jak biblijna otchłań. Czarna zbroja Goliata nie przepuszcza najmniejszych przebłysków.
Piana: Ciemna, beżowa średnioziarnista, gęsta jak budyń, ubita na sztywno. Bardzo długo się utrzymuje, można ją zjadać łyżkami. Lacing książkowy.
Zapach: OH MY GOD! Poezja dla moich receptorów węchowych. Magiczna płynna doskonałość! Olbrzymia doza słodyczy w postaci toffi, płynnej czekolady, wanilii oraz ciasta piernikowego. Cała słodycz okraszona jest olbrzymią palonością z kawową nutą na koniec. Leciutki alkohol wibruje po przelaniu do szkła.
Smak: Gęste jak olej silnikowy. Przy pierwszym kontakcie wydaje się bardzo słodkie, czekoladowe. Po kilku chwilach już musują na języku owocowe akordy składające się z ciemnych owoców. Potem znowu słodycz w postaci pierników i orzechów. Na finiszu mrożona kawa z wytrawnym kakaowym posmakiem. Alkohol perfekcyjnie grzeje w przełyku, jest słodko rozpalający. Oczywiście nie ma mowy o jego wychodzeniu przed szereg! Goryczka kawowa, mocna, torpedująca. Piwo jest bardzo ułożone, doskonale zbalansowane i wielowymiarowe.
Wysycenie: Niskie.
Podsumowanie: Piwo wypite z okazji 600 lajków na blogu Biroholik.
Goliat jest czarny jak zbroja tego olbrzyma, gęsty i oleisty. Jego piana jest trwała, wysoka i mocna jak jego pięści. Zapach jest obłędny. Jest wielowarstwowy i ciągle odnajduje w nim coś nowego. Przede wszystkim : czekolada, ciemne owoce, wanilia, prażone ziarna kawy i ciasto piernikowe. W smaku palone ziarna kawy, gęsta słodka czekolada, wanilia i cukier trzcinowy. Doskonała goryczka, alkohol ułożony. Pijalność świetna jak na takiego mocarza. Jeden z najlepszych RIS-ów jakie piłem!
