Piraat is a wickedly rich and rounded brew that packs a mighty punch. The powerful glow builds up from inside. Deep golden with a subtle haze. Lots of hops and malt. Mild sweetness. Reminiscent of bread dough, spices and tropical fruits.

Bouteille 33 cl - Belle mousse blanche persistante, couleur ambrée. Odeur : très forte d’alcool, vanille et banane. Goût : banane même si l’alcool très prononcée. Amertume persistante en bouche. Final long et basé sur l’alcool qu’on sent très fortement

swillguzzler99 (186) - Peoria, Arizona, USA - MAR 21, 2016
330 mL bottle. Pours an opaque gold with a tinge of copper. Beautiful inch fluffy head. Nose is a tad of clove, fruity and nutty. Mild taste, maybe raisins and dough. Sweet aftertaste with a hint of linger followed by the EtOH. A solid example of the class

Balabuska (9) - SPAIN - MAR 15, 2016 does not count
Pours hazy golden/light amber with a big foamy head that leaves lacing. The aroma contains different fruits, spices, sugar, yeast and dough. Medium sweet towards a light, not too dry bitterness. Medium in body, lively carbonation and thick texture. A big punch of alcohol for the lovers.

This one somehow reminded me of the La Trappe Quad ... it’s like a copy of it. Very Good beer though.

haggis03a3 (197) - Orinda, California, USA - FEB 25, 2016
Nice foamy head. Aroma of citrus, sweet bready molasses and dried fruit. Tastes sweet with same flavors with some alcohol and a metallic flavor. Too sweet but has a nice mouth feel and good carbonation.

Zilb (151) - Fontenay Sous Bois, FRANCE - FEB 17, 2016
Arôme sur la banane et l’alcool. Belle mousse qui tient, couleur ambrée. En bouche, fluide et alcoolisée. Finale franche et moyennement longue sur l’alcool. Bonne bière bien qu’elle soit un peu trop orientée sur l’alcool. Une bière de caractère à accompagner d’un plat.

Clean amber. Frothy large head with high retention. Aroma intensity 3/5. Blackcurrant, banana and a bit of pepper in the nose. Medium bitter with some sweet in the back of the mouth. Pepper is more evident in the taste. Medium to full body
