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.

A: Poured with an average-sized head that is white and bubbly. Body is a dark orange, and extremely clear with just the slightest evidence of haze. S: Lots of yeast and bread coming through here. The aroma also has a fruitiness to it that is quite pleasant. T: Sweet, fruity, and yeast, with a very slight twinge of bitterness in there as well. The finish is dry, with a slight alcohol warmth as well. M: Medium-bodied, creamy, with average carbonation. D: A very good beer, but I don’t know if I would have recognized it as a Belgian IPA; mind you, I’ve never had this style before, and I would expect their IPAs to be less in-your-face then many in North America.

Aromat: tosty, karmel, biszkopt, brzoskwinie. Wygląd: barwa ciemno złota, piana obfita, ładnie zdobi szkło. Smak: słodycz w postaci tostów, karmelu i mocnych przypraw, owoce schodzą na drugi plan, goryczka umiarkowana, delikatny rozgrzewający alkohol. Tekstura: sporo ciała, wycenie dość wysokie Ogólne wrażenie: pyszne piwo, intensywny belgijski aromat i smak oraz dobrze ukryty alkohol sprawiają, że piwo pomimo woltażu oraz pozornie degustacjnego charakteru jest mocno pijalne.

Cleaning the fridge tasting. Bottle, pours amber with a white head. Aroma: grains, booze, dust, clove. Taste: caramel, booze, grass, coriander, clove, sweet apples. Pretty sweet, mild bitterness, oily texture, medium body, average carbonation. Boozy finish. Everything about this beer is just too boozy really.

From El Corte Ingles, Club del Gourmet. In Duvel glass. After dinner. Good sugary aroma and taste. Leaves a nice ticklish sensation in the mouth.

No distinguishable hop aroma at all, could smell only the alcohol. Taste follows the nose with nothing but alcohol. One of the booziest beers I have ever tasted. Couldn’t even finish it.

MMJL (268) - Gliwice, POLAND - JUL 21, 2015
Z butelki delikatne nuty fenolowe. Piana bardzo wysoka, średnio-pęcherzykowa, prawie białą – piwo jest wyraźnie przegazowane. Mimo wszystko piana nie jest brzydka – utrzymuje się długo bardzo ładnie oblepiając szkło. W barwie piwo jest bursztynowe leciutko tylko zamglone. W aromacie ze szkła pojawiają się nuty owocowe, brzoskwiniowe, trochę suszonych jabłek, lekka guma do żucia. Po ogrzaniu robi się już mocno landrynkowy. W smaku niestety dosyć wyraźnie alkoholowe, ale po chwili, gdy się do tego przyzwyczaić, staje się słodkawe, owocowe, morelowe, przyprawowe, może i lekko biszkoptowe. Goryczka właściwie wyłącznie alkoholowa – wpływ chmielu nie jest w ogóle wyczuwalny. Piwo dosyć mocno grzeje w przełyk dając nieco grzejące odczucie.

AgentAle (1116) - Alberta, CANADA - JUL 13, 2015
Aroma is candy sugar, yeast , plum, raisins and light sulphur. Taste is a deep and sweet maltiness paired with a fresh dark fruitiness. For the abv, it finishes smoothly and has just a tad of bitterness to keep it interesting. Appearance is a clear gold with a fluffy pillow head that retains very well.

alusdievs (6) - LATVIA - JUL 10, 2015 does not count
Ļoti labs alus! 0,33 cl. Ļoti labs aromāts - kaut kas uz maizi. Izskats arī labs - tāds dzintara, necaurspīdīgs, duļķains. Garša ir saldenna, bet izteiksmīa, turpinoša.

Bottle. Gold and clear. White head with nice lace in the glass. Peach, spices and sweetness from malts in aroma. Sweet and alcohol in taste. Not Bad.

Pours a hazy copper colour with thick white lingering head. Aroma contains notes of peach, spice, coriander, floral hop, bready dough and sweet malt. Taste is initially dry bitter with a nicely balanced sweetness. Thick textured and lingering taste. Good strong beer!
