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.

Sabor tostado al paladar con una nota final especiada. Amargor suave en la garganta. De espuma y cuerpo consistente.

Piepenhenrich (589) - Steinbach, GERMANY - SEP 2, 2017
This is a Balgian Ale very much to my liking, strong, rich in flavor, complex, malty, sour, hoppy notes all at the same time, has a slightly alcoholic aftertaste.

Yeast. Bubblegum. Cloves. Dark fruit. Murky orange/brown Amber with an off white sudsy head that fades down to a thin layer on the surface and leaves a small coating on the glass. Clove. Dough. A hint of brandy. Velvety mouthfeel. A little spicy edge. Slight bitter finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DraftDodger (1619) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 13, 2017
Copenhagen 13/8-2017. 33 cl bottle from Den Gamle Købmand. Little chubby bottle with Pirate Ship on the label. Pours hazy orange with quite big white head. Settles a 3 cm thick layer of foam. Massive lacing. Aroma is sourish and sharp with fruity and dusty notes. I get a clear feel of the high ABV with strong boozy notes. Strong carbonation and thick oily palate. Flavor is medium sweet followed by strong sour bitterness. Aftertaste is sour and very boozy with the alcohol coming through. If you like your beer sweet, very strong and with an sour unforgiving touch - go for a Piraat.

AleRider78 (1383) - Winchester, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 7, 2017
Pours a huge foamy head and has a hazy orange, golden amber appearance. Thick patchy lacing. Earthy and resin hop aromas as well as sweet malts. Flavours of oranges, spices, dark type fruits, herbal hops and some light grassy notes and a little bit yeasty. Has a drying mouthfeel and a slight astringent sensation. Pretty easy going for an above 10%abv brew.

Kolor: Bursztynowy, delikatnie zamglony. Piana: Biala, obfita, drobnopecherzykowa, trwala, pieknie oblepia szklo. Zapach: Slodki, miodowy, kwiatowy z lekka i bardzo przyjemna nuta alkoholowa - pachnie jak porzadny miód pitny. Smak: Miód, karmel, pumpernikiel i lekka, a moze nawet srednia goryczka. Wysycenie srednie, piwo nie jest moze super tresciwe, ale przyjemnie wykleja jame ustna. Warka z data waznosci do 13.01.2017, wiec piwo zdazylo sie zestarzec i czuc to na kazdym kroku. Alkohol przez te pare lat schowal sie doskonale.

chromeotaphor (172) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2017
Vol pittig van smaak krachtig van binnen opbouwend. Met een warme pittige zoet droge maltige afdronk. Mooi in balans. Doet zijn naam eer aan! Wild kolkend als hij vers is ingeschonken als de woeste zee. Een dikke vette aanrader! Broodachtig, pittig, fris fruitig. Nondeju das ne goeje!
