Belgian Beer no.166: Piraat

Same brewery as the previous beer no.165, same alcohol content. Piraat. Again a new beer which we didn't try out last time (festival) around. The beer undergoes a second fermentation in the bottle, and is an amber beer at 10.5%.

There is a whole story about the Vikings who loved this kind of potent beer, which explains the ship on the bottle and glass. (See left.) Apparently this beer is a health energy booster. Which absolutely justifies then drinking lots of it.

I've had two bottles of this ( not at the same time I hasten to add), and each time, I almost pulled a sicky the day after!!

That stuff is strong, very easy on it's way down, but it is deceptively strong.
