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.

(Bottle). Another unique find from QuezXLV. Very rich coffee, roasted malt flavor with hop balance and warming alcohol. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Theyre not joking with the name, had a 330 on tap but i think id have a hard time drinking more. Lotta coffee, smokiness, simultaneously dessert sweet but also salty on the back, gettin some red wine fermented grape notes too

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 (2128) - 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.

Dark, minimal head. Strong coffee, dark fruits, cocoa, poppey seeds. Too sweet, like a liquid dessert with roasty bitterness. Full body, soft carbonation, thick. Long finish.
