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.

Bawelt (815) - Lyon, FRANCE - FEB 22, 2017
Nez : du café mais très doux, beaucoup de fruits (cassis, prune), un peu éthylique mais rien d’agressif. En bouche : très sucrée ! On trouve une jolie amertume qui coupe avec le sucre, le côté fruité. Assez complexe. Petit côté vert qui donne un faux air black IPA. Dans tous les cas, la longueur repart sur le sucre. En général : super bonne et vraiment particulière. Trop de sucre, ce qui la rend un rien écoeurante.

Tap@ Kivi, Tartu. Pours almost black with brown head. Aroma: bitterish, roasted, chilly, dark chocolate, coffee, woody. Taste: medium bitter with some balancing sweetness, roasted coffee beans, dark chocolate with some milk chocolate. Full body. Bitter finish with some upcoming sweetness. Well balanced. Nice one.

Szulo (60) - P³ock, POLAND - FEB 17, 2017
Cudowny zapach kawy tuż po otwarciu butelki. Po przelaniu do szkła formuje się całkiem trwała, średnio pęcherzykowa piana barwy beżowej natomiast samo piwo jest nieprzejrzyste, smoliste. Aromat zdecydowanie zdominowany przez kawę, w tle delikatna paloność. W smaku podobnie jak poprzednio- kawa. Gęste, wyklejające i dosyć słodkie. Pije się naprawdę przyjemnie, nie czuć w ogóle tych 10%.

PowY (499) - AUSTRIA - FEB 10, 2017
375 ml bottle. Pours a jet black with a creamy light brown head and some large floating particles. Intense aroma of strongly roasted malt, black coffee, dark chocolate, some caramel, pretty tart and very decent. Full creamy body with a very low carbonation. The taste is heavily sweet, which is a little surprising after the smell, and lightly bitter. Flavors of caramel, brown sugar, overripe dark fruits, soy sauce, hints of alcohol, some coffee in the end.

Scrumpy369 (673) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 4, 2017
Bottle shared at csakajo. Pitch black colour, good brown head, with medium retention. Nose is coffee with some strange pickled notes. Taste is low sweetness, low bitterness. Strange sourness. Dunno bug or feature, but strange nontheless.

abirres (117) - Salamanca, SPAIN - FEB 2, 2017
Negra y totalmente opaca, espuma cremosa color marrón oscuro y media retención, cierto encaje. En nariz muy intensa, enseguida aparecen las maltas torrefactas con notas a café y cacao, lúpulo agresivo de carácter herbal y pináceo, ahumada y tabaco, licorosa. En boca aún más intensa que en nariz, de cuerpo casi pleno y carbónico propio del estilo, se intensifican los sabores torrefactos a café, ésteres frutales a ciruelas negras y un lúpulo resinoso que se lleva el protagonismo, de final seco y largo con notas a tabaco y ahumados. Se nota el alcohol aunque está bien integrado. Para mi gusto, un lúpulo muy agresivo y resinoso sobretodo en sabor que enmascara las maltas.

ALIBALI (1551) - Kiel, GERMANY - JAN 21, 2017
The BIG Brother. Sweet as hell und von samtiger Natur. In der Nase erstaunlicher Weise noch relativ sanft. Kaffee, Röst und Maggiaromen umsäuseln das Näschen. Das große Aha- Erlebnis dann beim EXTREM süßen Antrunk. Wow, viel zu süß ist der erste Gedanke, den man kurze Zeit später allerdings revidiert. Der erdig würzige Hopfen macht’s möglich. Very british. TAP. GUTENBERG KIEL. 4,90/0,3.
