UPDATED: JUN 30, 2016 Barwa ciemnobrązowa, piwo jest raczej klarowne. Bardzo obfita, trwała, beżowa piana. W aromacie suszone owoce, figi, rodzynki, karmel, trochę alkoholu. Dość wysokie wysycenie, w smaku jest słodkie. Są rodzynki, chleb, belgijskie drożdże, przyjemny owocowy posmak.

StormCoat (123) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 28, 2016
Picked up a 12oz bottle at Party Source in Newport, KY; tasted it from a goblet. Pours a cola-color with a fluffy beige head that dissipates slowly. Only scattered specks of lacing for me. Aromas are bigsweet, spicy, a bit banana-like...yeasty with some alcohol coming through. Flavors are sweet, caramelly, with toasty brown sugar and a slight coffee bitterness in the finish. Body seems medium, with a fizzy carbonation. This one is tasty.

Marrom, mdia leve turbidez, espuma bege de mdia formao e pouca persistncia. Aroma de uva passa, chocolate, torrado, adocidada, deliciosa. Paladar maltado, leve torrado, alcolica, dulor intenso e mdio amargor. Corpo licoroso, baixssima carbonatao como era de se eg4sperar. Final maltado, adocicado, leve amadeirado. Boa, mas perde para as quad belgas.
