COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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 is one of the only belgian beers I really like. It has such a fruity, and nutty spiced taste. If I could bathe in it, I would.

Alkohol mocno wyczuwalny, do tego trochę nut aptecznych, fenolowych, jabłka, gruszki. W smaku alkohol również daje się we znaki, nie jest to takie miłe rozgrzewanie a pieczenie w przełyk. Piana ładnie oblepiająca szkło, raczej drobnopęcherzykowa. Dziwi mnie dość ocena na portalu, nie wiem czy to kwestia warki, ale ocena trochę wygórowana.

A bit of alcohol greets you at first, but after a few tastes it settles down and gives way to hops. Light herbal flavours, a bite of sharp bitterness that is balanced out by caramel. This one was so good.

lajek (14) - pruszcz gdański, POLAND - MAR 25, 2015
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 (91) - 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 (106) - 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.

mariuszek (249) - Gdynia, POLAND - MAR 23, 2015
Pours dark golden, rich head and lacing. Aroma is sweet and barnyard, some herbal hops. In taste malty fruity sweetness, alcohol is hidden, but one xan feel this is a strong stuff. Very good strong ale.

Reconqvista (94) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 19, 2015
Pale orange color with a fantastic white head, thick and lasting. Very refined carbonation. Strong fruity and alcoholic aromas with slight citric notes. Very sweet flavor, fruity. Sparkling palate leading to a long end.

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.
