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!

fonefan (35220) - VestJylland, DENMARK - MAY 7, 2012

Draught @ Mikkeller Bar, Viktoriagade 8BC, kld., DK-1655 Copenhagen, Denmark.

Clear dark black brown colour with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly diminishing, beige head. Aroma is moderate to heavy malty, strong coffee, roasted, dusty coffee, and some coffee. Flavour is heavy sweet and moderate bitter with a long to average duration, syrupy sweet. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. To sweet and boozy for me ! [20120320]

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2012
On tap. Pours black and opaque with a brownish head. Plenty of coffee in the nose combined with hard roast. Quite full-bodied, sweet hard roasted malts - almost sticky. Tons of unfermented sugars and again plenty of coffee. Bitter and boozy finish. I like my Stouts sweet, but this to be honest is a bit much. 170312

Opaque dark brown beer, good tan head. Palate is soft and dry. Rich earthy coffee with a tangy fruitiness. A little malt cream. Dry finish. Tasty but could do with having something else going on other than just coffee.
