    I watched this one and can't believe what they did. It looked really good after the "makeover". I would be surprised if it succeeded except for the Bar Rescue publicity that might extend its life.

    Granted, you mentioned that it is your opinion but really? "Piraat....was pretty terrible?" I just had a bottle tonight that I had cellared for more than 2 years and I looked back at my rating of 4.55....I would not change a thing! The label mentions that it is "A Tripel by Strength but in IPA by history" so I guess that it is considered a Tripel IPA. To me it it more of a straight "Tripel" and it is excellent. Great sweet malt, the welcome burn of alcohol. I think that it is really great....just my opinion.

    The barrels used started as Jack Daniels barrels in 1982, then we're shipped to Appleton Estate to age rum for 23 years.

    Heavy Seas beers are all pretty much pirate themed. And their Loose cannon is great.
     
  28. BrewDog's Old World IPA has a pirate ship on it's label.
    Don De Dieu has a cool ship on it.
    Cheers!
