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.

Good beer, and strong is right. Golden to amber with a thick white head. Some bread and alcohol and a touch of citrus. Medium sweet with a creamy palate and lingers pleasantly.

Alengrin (1824) - BELGIUM - SEP 28, 2014
Popular Belgian barley wine with amber colour and a yeasty and fruity character, some honeyish malt sweetness, spicy yeastiness, grassy hops and warming, ’jenever’-like alcohol in the finish, badly hidden. Okay but typically Van Steenberge, lacking the elegance I expect from this style.

Large, frothy and white head, Hazy orange yellow sparkling body. Aroma contains malts, citrus fruits, yeasts, some light sweet fruits, faint tropical and forest fruits, alcohol and spices. Light acidic taste, then light acidic and light sweet, followed by sweet and bitter and light acidic and bitter and finishing in bitter. Full body with syrupy texture and soft carbonation. Quite heavy but also quite enjoyable.

HammerTroll (509) - Pula / Zagreb, CROATIA - SEP 19, 2014
Hazy yellow color, with extremely huge white head. Medium to heavy sweetness. Aroma is pretty much nothing but alcohol. Some malt and yeast, and just a little bit spicy. Medium body, average carbonation, creamy texture. Too sugary and too boozy, blah.

A mighty one with a very aromatic taste, a firm but definite palate and the unconcealed strength.

Tastes a bit like Gulden Draak: less sweet and caramel-like, but more herbs and ’beer’.
