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.

Amazing beer. Had on tap at Jester king and this killed all of their offerings. Aroma is blend of coffee Imp stout and hint of old ale in stone fruits and vinous-ness. Appearance is BLACK with a nice tan big head which really brings the aromas right to your nasal doorstep. Taste is nose but the coffee bitterness swaps places with the old ale influences making it a kind of old ale Imp stout with hints of coffee. Palate is thick and wonderful. A great beer.

Cask at Brewdog Nottingham. A black colour with a thin tan head. Aroma of coffee beans, wood, some roasted malts, smoke, slight oats, bready malts, a little dark chocolate and subtle caramel. Taste of dark chocolate, coffee, roasted malts, some rolled oats, slight wood, smoke, a little brown sugar, a hint of dark fruits and subtle caramel. Full bodied and soft carbonation. A long, sweetish, woody, chocolatey finish. Complex as expected, lots of liquid dark chocolate, coffee, caramel and some woody smokiness. Quite smooth too in texture even if you can taste a little alcohol. Nice.

Keg at the bottle shop druid Street during the tap takeover. An opaque jet black coloured pour with a lasting thin tan head. Aroma is liquorice black malts, spicy woody coffee, raw coffee bean, little veg pepper, milky sweet. Flavour is composed of semi sweet lactose, spicy coffee, earthy, liquorice, marshmallow, hint of wood, tangy finish. Palate is rounded, medium full bodied lactose, lowish carbonation. Good.

Kiedyś miałem więcej serca do tego piwa - teraz nazbyt syropowe się wydaje, o smaku bardzo przesłodzonej kawy, przynajmniej alkohol schowany

Black, outstanding headL brown, heavy, longlasting. Aroma: coffee beans, toffee, vanilla. Heavy cloying sweetness, full body, low bitterness. Lots of coffee against even more sweetness. Very sticky, dense. Nice, but its hard to drink; condensed sweet coffee. Alcohol of course hidden behind sweetness.

Wow. What a beer. Pours black with almost no head. Aroma is sweet and extremely coffee centered. Some hops, surprisingly refreshing and dark malts. Medium to heavy body, thick mouthfeel, very sweet and rich. Dark malts, hops and especially loads of coffee. What a brilliant Imperial stout!

Wonderful appearance, havent seen such a foam yet. Aroma is mostly coffe. Taste is quite interesting as it is very hoppy. I think this is the most hoppy RIS I have tried and its really good. It can be summarized in 2 words: coffe and hops.

anstei (2169) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - MAY 6, 2017
Tap at Erzbierschof Bern. Pours pitch black with a soft brown foam. Aroma is sugar, marzipan, light chocolate, coffee, but really mostly candy and sugar. Body is heavy and extremely sweet. Soft carbonation, sticky, sugar and candy flavours. Lightly boozy towards the long sweet palate. This beer is diabetes, rather too much for me.

Butelka 37,5cl z datą ważności do 1.07.2017 BARWA: czarne, nie przejrzyste. PIANA: średnia, brązowa, drobno pęcherzykowa, trwała, pozostawia ładny lacing. AROMAT: głęboka likierowa słodowość, delikatne estry - śliwkowe + słodka czekolada , jak się ogrzało pojawiły się nuty kakaowo-orzechowe, naprawdę przyjemny złożony aromat w ktrym dominuje słodycz nad palonością, ktrej tak naprawdę jest bardzo mało i coś dziwnego cały czas mi się wbija jakby sos sojowy. SMAK: słodkie śliwki zalane likierem i gorzką czekoladą, delikatnie palona kawa, goryczka trochę za niska jak na styl z delikatnie alkoholowym przyjemnym finiszem . Wysycenie średnie do niskiego, dość pełne, wyklejające, gęste (po zamieszaniu szkła powoli spływa ze ścianek sniftera, bardzo dobrze ukryty alkohol. Ma to co powinno być w stylu poza palonością ktra nie jest nawet na poziomie umiarkowanym, nie każdemu podejdzie taka słodka ,deserowa interpretacja, mi akurat brakuje wysokiej paloności ( podstawa w stylu) i konkretnej goryczki, bliżej mu do BW ( takiej czarnej hybrydy) niż do ris (ale to moje zdanie ). Oczywiście ocena byłaby wyższa gdybym nie oceniał go w stylu bo piwo samo w sobie jest dobre , ale nie o to chodzi po to mamy style i opisy bjcp i pspd.
