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.

This one is best on a clean palate. The first few sips had a nice strong, fizzy, and fruity flavor, followed by a warm aftertaste. Mingled in was a little bitterness. If you sip on it continously the alcohol takes over, the fruitiness goes away and it tastes somewhat like a high-class malt liquor. The aroma is quite nice. I was comparing this to the Duvel I drank a week ago and thought it would come out on top at first, but I really think the alcohol content gives it a somewhat malt liquor feel, whereas the Duvel stayed consistent in taste. I found this to be much better if you wait 2-3 minutes in between sips. It’s good, but if I had a choice I would take the Duvel, not that either of them come that cheap.

Zapach brzydki mocno fenolowy, przebija si? lekki karmel. W smaku dosy? s?odki, ale alkohol wychodzi mocno na wierzch. Uczucie w ustach super to mi si? najbardziej podoba. Troch? zbyt mocne nasycenie, na pocz?tku gryzie w j?zyk.

Keogh (88) - Świebodzice, POLAND - MAR 25, 2015
Barwa bursztynowa, obfita piana, trwała. W aromacie słodowo, rodzynki, lekki karmel i alkohol. W smaku sporo słodyczy i czuć mocny alkohol - aczkolwiek przyjemnie rozgrzewa przełyk. Wysycenie niskie do średniego. Troszkę za słodkie jak dla mnie.

Mesjasz (103) - Lodz, POLAND - MAR 24, 2015
Little hazy orange color, big white head. Some herbal notes in aroma, also banana, bubble gum and hint of alcohol. Taste is light bitter, medium sweet with fruity flavor in belgian style. In aftertaste dry and alcoholic. Full body, thick texture and medium carbonation. Lack of balance. Averege beer.

Piana mega obfita, sztywna i trwa?a, przez ca?y czas, a? do samego ko?ca rysuje wspania?e wzory na szkle. Aromat s?odowy, s?odki, intensywnie karmelowy z delikatn? nut? rodzynek. Smak Piraat’a jest podobnie jak zapach mocno s?odowy i troch? przyt?acza, lekko kwaskowy, nie ma ju? akcentu rodzynek, s?odki. Alkohol jest pot??ny lecz wg. mnie nie przeszkadza, wspó?gra z goryczk?, która jest jakby podbiciem, finiszem ka?dego ?yku i cho? na pocz?tku "procenty" by?y nieco nachalne, to po ogrzaniu okaza?o si?, ?e mo?na je zaakceptowa?. Nie do ko?ca jestem z Piraat"a zadowolony cho? jego ocena na ratebeer to: style 92, overall 95.

Nice colored beer. Little cloudy. The thick layer of white foam stays on the beer for a long time. The taste is great, but quite bitter.
