The Toppling Goliath Brewing Company is in Decorah, Iowa.
The beer pours black in color. There is about an inch of tan
foamy head that completely disappears rather quickly. The aroma is rich dark
roasted malt, char, maple syrup and coffee. The taste follows the aromas, lots
of dark roasted malt notes, pleasant char, coffee, a bit of bittersweet dark
chocolate, with a hint of maple syrup sweetness. The finish is dry and
moderately bitter. The beer drinks smooth, with just enough body for all the
flavors, and with a light, subtle tingle of carbonation. This is a great stout.
