COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle: Unfiltered
Ingredients; Water, Pilsener malt, pale ale malt, Munich malt, aurora and petra hops, yeast
This strong amber beer was first brewed in 1982 at the request of Van Steenberge’s Italian importer. 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.

Copper with massive carbonation and a MASSIVE rocky head. Smells of yeast, bread, grapefruit and spices. Spicy dryness on the palate with a long lingering dry and warming finish.

Bottle from Richard (irishboy) Thanks! Pours out a yellowish brown color. Smell is sweet and rather boozy. Some hops, some spice, yeast, and some malts. Taste is similar, overly sweet with a large amount of alcohol in it. This one makes no effort to hide its very potent body. The sweetness gets to me towards the end, but over all its pretty nice, just not in large quantities.

Pours a honey colour with a thin head. Big sweet malty aroma, spicy yeast, apple. The taste is alcoholic but not offensively so. Malty with a brandyish flavour. Not as bad as I was expecting.

I think that we actually got a bad bottle of this, because it was very oxidized in the mouth, some sort of weird, and not pleasing, metal after taste. It poured a dark copper with a tiny head and strong alcohol. I got those fruits in the begining, but I was overwhelmed by the off-putting metal taste. Maybe try again? Special thanks to my wife, Peggy, for bringing this beer down from Atlanta.

Mmmmm....well, I didn’t like this one that much. It has a weird rosty flavor that didn’t let me enjoy it. Maybe was a bad one? I will have to try it again.

Pours hazy light copper with lots of carbonation and a good sized cream colored head. Very fruity aroma - nectar and citrus combo. There is also some spice and Belgium yeastiness. Full body with lots of soft carbonation. There is an alcohol warmth, but it is not overpowering. The initial tste has a load of earthy yeast and light spice. The alcohol is definitely here, but it is creamy and tolerable. The finish has strong light fruits (white grape, peach and such) and some spicy hops. A nice beer.

Storm (2684) - Amager, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2006
33 cl bottle. Yeast at the bottom. Cloudy pale amber colour with a little white head. Soft aroma of yeast, malt and some sweetness to. Also sweet malty flavour with notes of yeast and little alcohol at the end.

hophead75 (2012) - Largo, Florida, USA - SEP 5, 2006
pretty decent. Hazy light orange with a large, long lasting thick head. Aroma is heavy spices, some apples, pears, tart citrus, and peppery. Taste is the same with a dry lightly tart finish. nice alcohol warm in the finish also.

3.4
Dedollewaitor (16544) - Odense, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2006
10,5 % with the 9% label instead of the one shown in the picture?. Believe that should be corrected. Unclear golden with quick disappearing white head. Aroma of strong spices/yeast/fruit & alcohol. Taste of sweet malts. Warmth from alcohol. Filling smooth body with a medium live carbonation. Pleasant lasting finish. Ok from van steenberge.

3.5

Bottled. Had a flowery aroma. Strong herbal, citrus state. Spicy, astringent finish. Recommended.
