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.

Black with lasting brown head. Aroma of espresso, which dominates the taste as well. Very smooth almost creamy. The bitterness of the coffee and the roasted malts stays consistent until a glorious bitter finish. Fantastic beer.

Butelka zakupiona w Warszawie 0,5l. Kolor czarny wspaniały, gęsty tak jak i piana ciemnobrązowa zostawiająca na ściankach liczne ślady. Aromat czekolady i kawy, smak karmel, kakao i znowu dużo kawy i czekolady. Alkohol 10,1%niewyczuwalny ale daje moc. Goryczka średnia super wysycenie. Piwo genialne!

Beerheart65 (1500) - Pori, FINLAND - DEC 9, 2015
Beautifully black, ebony, 2 finger dense creamy, long brown head leaving foggy islands that last really long, sticky lacing. Herbs are 1st in aroma, roasted malt, lots of coffee, later pine, salty licorice, chocolate. Lively and nuanced aroma. Heavy, full feel, velvety soft, full bodied, long finish, nicely roasted to medium bitter, sweet. Excellent, balanced, lively, nuanced, lots of character, good aromas and flavors, looks great, highly recommended!

szymonskc (704) - Skrcz, POLAND - JAN 3, 2016
Aromat bardzo intensywny, wanilia, deserowa czekolada i kawa. Kolor czarny jak smoła, nieprzejrzyste, gęste. Piana ciemnobeżowa, wysoka, bardzo drobna, trwała, pięknie zdobi szkło. W smaku intensywnie kawowe, wręcz kwaśne, kakao, lekko waniliowe. Alkohol znakomicie ukryty, Goryczka średnia, niskie wysycenie. Piwo łatwo pijalne mimo swej gęstości i alkoholu. Kapitalne piwo.

Aroma:
Heavy aroma of malts, caramel, dark fruit, liquorice, chocolate, molasses, mocha, roasted malts and coffee.

Appearance:
Opaque black beer with slight yeast and with a medium dark brown head.

Taste/Palate:
Starts heavy sweet with malts, caramel, dark fruit, liquorice, chocolate, molasses and mocha; ends slightly bitter and dry with roasted malts and coffee.

Overall:
This beer is intense, complex and balanced. What a great beer with loads of flavour. The key is to not take a full sip, because that would make the beer way too sweet. Amazing appearance and palate; and the aroma and taste are only slightly behind.

Absolutely incredible beer. To the point it has got me to rate again. Big coffee flavours, sweet but also some nice added hop bitterness. An absolute must try

UPDATED: JAN 1, 2017 Puur zwart met mokkakleurige schuimkraag. Aroma en smaken van koffie(bonen), room, chocolade, toffee, rozijntjes. Zoetig van smaak met licht bittere afdronk. Heel smooth mondgevoel (10 % abv amper waarneembaar). Topstout.

Tap @Mikkeller Bar. Poured almost black color with a brown head. Aroma is heavily roasted and has some great coffee aroma as well. Flavor is enormous, greek coffee, frapp, roasted malt, dark fruits, sweet malt. The finish is bitter and dry with lots of coffee. Very easy to drink despite the ABV, session IS Id say! Mind blowing. Have to get more of this.

Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen. Poured dark brown in colour with a thin tan head. Roasted malts and coffee in aroma. Really intensive on the nose. Loads of coffee, dark chocolate and more coffee in flavour. Aftertaste slightly bitter and once again coffee. Nice brew, more please!
