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.

Aromas of elderberries, cherries, grapes, tropical fruits, and wild flowers, along with hints of vanilla and caramel. Hazy deep orange-amber with rocky, white head foam that has great retention. Sweet with a bite of fruity tartness, spice, and hop bitterness, and perceptible strength without being boozy. Medium-full bodied, with a refreshing, frothy carbonation, and a drying, tart, spicy and fruity finish.

Light amber with a white large foamy head. Aromas of malts, bread dough, alcohol aromatic herbs and a floral touch develop. Light effervescent, slick and round with a full body. Rich sweetness with a floral hop bite and a long lasting bit chewy finish. Powerful.

A nice surprise. I was expecting much less than what this glass of ale had in store. Nice color...laces nicely. Pleasant flavor. High ABV isn’t detectable. No bitter. A fine glass of ale.

nybol (1059) - DENMARK - APR 10, 2016
Mange procenter uden at den virker spritet. Den mangler måske lidt sødme for at opveje styrken.

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 (185) - 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
