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!

Deep brown/black with a dense tan head, looks mighty nice. Huge aroma, very roasty, smells big, coffee is present but not overwhelming. Thick oily mouthfeel, light carbonation keeps it smooth. Taste is as big as the aroma, initial sweetness and strong roast, rich coffee, although leaning into soy sauce territory, which is not a good thing. Very big and enjoyable.

Flaske på Agenturet. Aroma røsted malt, lakris, sjokolade. Utseende sort med beige skum. Smak lakris, sjokolade, malt, plomme. Et fyldig øl med mye smak av frukt og gotteri ---

Szulo (19) - Płock, 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 (431) - 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 (607) - 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 (109) - 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 (1278) - 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.

Fules (999) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - JAN 15, 2017
Nagy, tartós, barna hab, Sötétbarna, szinte fekete szín. Kávés, aszalt gyümölcsös illat. Enyhén édeskés csokoládés, kávés, aszalt gyümölcsös ízvilág, enyhe alkoholos lecsengéssel. Krémes, testes, de nem nehéz, enyhén szénsavas, közepesen keserű, amit inkább a pörkölt maláta ad. Kiváló desszertsör ami nem megy el a gejl irányba, végig komoly marad.

Koelschtrinker (18731) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JAN 12, 2017
Intensiv malziger Antrunk mit deutlichen Kaffeearomen. Weich, süffig, die nun süßlichen Kaffeenoten steigen weiter. Geringe Karbonisierung, sehr geringe Bitterkeit. Erdige Noten, spät holzig, dafür dann aber wuchtig. Sehr langer Nachgeschmack. Sehr gut. 12/12/11/13/10/13

vincentvega72 (534) - Terneuzen, NETHERLANDS - DEC 31, 2016
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.
