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.

Antzrhere (178) - Blackpool, Lancashire, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2016
Bottle, Lidl. Pours golden with white head that quickly diminishes. Aroma of banana, yeast, caramel and some (pleasant) sulphury freshness. Taste is candi, caramel, some light bubblegum (maybe?), very sweet but not cloying, quite nice. Not overly hot, well balanced and definitely morish.

Bottle pour into taster cup at One Stop Market 30th Anniversary. Appearance is hazy light brown, no sparkle, minimal head, with light lacing. Aroma is strong tropical fruit, caramel malt, dark fruits. Taste is strong fruit and malts, pear, very rich bordering on a liquor. Palate is medium-to-full bodied with creamy texture, yeasty, fruity, sweet finish. Overall, this is very good with a lot of bold flavors and aromas.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2016 Butelka 330ml. Ciemnozloty kolor. Piana obfita biala,dlugo utrzymuje sie w szkle. Karbonacja wysoka z burza pieknie "tanczacych"babelkow. Aromat slodowy z owocowo-rodzynkowym akcentem. W smaku slody rodzynki owoce przyprawy. Slodkawe i swietnie zbalansowane z dobrze ukrytym alkoholem.

Shared 11.2 oz. bottle. Pours a hazy golden color with a fizzy white head. Aroma is quite mild with some malt, fruitiness, and spice. Taste is rather intense, with plenty of malt, fruit, bread, spice, and Belgian yeast. Warming finish.

Aroma: lightly sweet and spicy; Appearance: very hazy amber pour with fluffy white head that sticks around; Taste: much more distinctive than aroma; very sweet to start, lots of spice in the middle, with malty finish; Palate: medium body with long, sweet finish; Overall: a little too sweet for me, but interesting. Would drink again if available.

Stevig bier. Aangename smaak, soms iets te bitter. Goede nasmaak, je proeft de alcohol. Fruitsmaak ook merkbaar
