COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Strong Dark Belgian
Here comes the monster GOLIATHON! Fermented with a friendly yeast from Inglemunster in Belgium, along with our house yeast from Rochefort, Goliathon is a roasty, malty beer with fruit forward overtones. German Carafa and British roast barley were added late in the mash tun to provide rich color without an excessive amount of roast bitterness.

This beer is my favorite beer of the OBF. Strong and rich, there is no way one tastes the 11% ABV. Very balanced flavor with no one element taking the spotlight. It's a truly spectacular beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tap at OBF. Pours dark brown with beige bubbles. Aromas of dark fruit and Belgian yeast/spice. Full bodied. Flavor is dark fruit, lighter fruity esters, treacle and arguably kandi. Theres no heat. Its high on sweet but theres lots of other things countering that. Sort of a baltic porter that went Belgian. Very tasty.

Rusty brown with a thin white head. Aroma of caramelized sugar and yeast. Taste is surprisingly less sweet, more fruit than refined sugar.

Draft at uber. Pours an opaque dark brown with a loose and creamy tan head. Big sweet caramel, dates, and vanilla nose. Creamy medium body with soft carb. Caramel date and vanilla mid palate. Not a lot of complexity to the flavor, especially given the abv.

On tap at Uber Tavern, pours a cloudy reddish dark brown with a big beige head. Aroma of brown sugar, Belgian yeast and hops. Flavour of sweet candied sugar, Belgian yeast, and caramel malt, with almost a peppery note in there. A bit cloyingly sweet, but quite good.
