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 Steenberges 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.

nick76 (4396) - Tampa, Florida, USA - AUG 6, 2005
The aroma is heavy with yeast and malt and some sweet raisins. The appearance is fantastic. The color is a hazy dark golden and pours one of the finest foamy heads I have ever seen. The flavor is super sweet with some cheese, ginger, and cloves. Packs an alcohol kick thats stronger than it needs to be. The aftertaste is sweet and bitter. If you like really sweet strong beers you will love this one!
