350ml bottle into a Brooklyn tulip.

A gorgeous pour unleashes a thick, pitch black body into the glass. The head is tall and well-retained--dusty tan in color--and leaves some sticky lacing behind on the glass. Aroma is rife with roasted espresso beans, caramel, and dark chocolate. A bit of earthy hops and dark fruit add balance.

The alcohol comes through on the flavor, but doesn't overwhelm the senses, adding a vinous sweetness to the layers of rich chocolate and coffee roast. Fig and plum with a bit of chalky earth in the finish. Mouthfeel is thick and chewy, smooth and nicely carbonated. Overall, a delicious imperial stout and one of the better coffee stout's out there. Goliat is the real deal...

Dark black, thick body, with a small dark brown head that leaves the glass just absolutely messed with stick: sheets, webs, and lines. A simply, gorgeous, perfectly attractive imperial stout.

Very nice, expressive, bold aroma of roasted coffee, cream, and bittersweet chocolate. Simple but bold and very nice. Complete.

The flavor is just as good as the aroma, with bittersweet chocolates, roasted coffee, mild dark fruit, and a moderate level of bitterness combining for one deliciously, decadent, coffee imperial stout.

Full in body with low to moderate carbonation. Only a mild alchohol hint. Easy drinking, but rich and decadent, all at once.

Flawless.

A coffee based based stout, and a really good one at that. Good roast aroma. Very brown coloured body with wisp of a head. Some chocolate sweetening it. Understated carbonation. Very drinkable and tasty.Brought back from Lakeview Liquors, and thanks for sharing Liam.

375 mL bottle poured into a snifter. Reviewed from notes.

Appearance - Black. A little bit of a khaki head. Nice wisps on the surface.

Smell - Lots of coffee. Sweet malts. A little roast.

Taste - Sharp coffee and sweet caramel malts, but the roasted malts make more of an appearance and balance it out nicely. A little bit fruity in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Chewy and medium heavy. Bitter coffee aftertaste.

Overall - Good. Lots of coffee, but the stout backs it up nicely and the flavors work very well.

This was absolutely fantastic. My expectations were high, and it surpassed them in grand form.

Poured this one in a Jester King glass and the appearance was jet black with a small mocha head.

The nose was very nice with mostly cocoa and roasted coffee taking front seat.

Wow. The taste was truly amazing. It started with a sweet toffee and chocolate, but before becoming too sweet, the roasted coffee flavors appeared to bring a very nice balance. The finish was a sweet roasted mocha that lingered with a hint of bitterness.

The mouth feel was on the thicker side, but still allowed for a slick coating which really made for a creamy, silk feel. Carbonation was moderate.

Overall, the balance of this beer was very impressive. Everything hit on all cylinders and was truly one of the best beers I've tasted. I will definitely be buying this again.

Bottle: Poured a pitch-black color stout with a rather large dark brown foamy head with good retention and some lacing. Aroma of medium sweet chocolates notes with light roasted malt notes. Taste is also dominated some black chocolates notes with light roasted malt, light coffee notes with light residual sugars. Body is quite full with good carbonation and no clear apparent alcohol. Enjoyable but a bit short in terms of complexity.
