COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The city and province of Utrecht has got a great history (and future) of brewing beer. It deserves a beer that shows our appreciation and what more could we do than make this Utrecht Strong Ale. Big hops dominate the aroma and big malts support them in taste. Put your hands up for Utrecht, we love that city!

Draft at Mikkeller SF. Clear ruby pour, frothy white head with moderate duration. Aroma: hard candy cherry (like, jolly rancher) at the forefront dominates this for me. Floral component as well. Taste: malty, cherry, somewhat sweet with a moderately bitter floral hop presence. Some plums? There’s this flavor I associate with plummy old barleywines, but it isn’t really plum - plummish? Palate: full body, creamy smooth texture, average carbonation. Overall: it would be way fun to see what a HOTD collaboration on this beer would look like.

Rating #1101 - May 24, 2014 - Spring Fling @ Liquor Select - My history brain can’t stop thinking about the treaty of Utrecht as I approach this beer - Aroma is burnt sugar maltiness - molasses, caramel, cookie dough - billowing out of a bubbly amber pour. Quite boozy, but fairly well disguised, this has a distinct North american hop presence in the finish. Almost like a dutch version of Arrogant Bastard. Tasty.

rikstar (923) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2014
0,33l fles uitgeschonken diep roodbruin van kleur met een beperkte creme kleurige cremkraag. Geur is zoet met hoppig karakter, maar ook bosvruchten en taart, met op de achtergrond ook de caramel en zelfs iets van cacao. Smaak begint zoet met wederom bosvruchten door het dikke romige mondgevoel vruchtenyoghurt achtig.in de nasmaak ook de bitterheid van de hop en gist. Dit is een erg mooi complex bier, zeker geen doordrinker.

340 ml bottle. Pours a yellow brown with lots of suspended sediment and light head. Aromas of caramel, rubber, and malt extract. Flavors are similar with emphasis on chewy sweet malts.

Maakun (834) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2014
Tap at Kaapse Brouwers. Reddish brown with medium sized cream colored head. Yeasty and spicy, with Apple, berries, vegetal bitter finish. Light sweet but nothing too much. Medium bodied. Nice.

Nocturne (888) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2014
Keg at PSBH, Manchester. Hazy reddish shade with a finger of head. Hoppy aroma. Taste is also hoppy, fizzy sherbet, malty in the style of an amber ale. Mouthfeel is slightly creamy. Pretty nice. The malt and hops seem to both contribute distinctively and work in harmony.

from Drankenhuys Amersfoort, 13/5/14. No Head, lots of carbonation. Brown coloured. Hoppy aroma, also some caamel. Citrus in the taste. Nice bitter finish, nice one!

Swaroga (1477) - Brussels, BELGIUM - OCT 12, 2014
Butelka 33cl. OCZY : piwo wlane bez osadu jest przejrzyste. Ma kolor bursztynowy z odcieniami czerwieni. Piana nie jest wielka, ma kolor jasnego beżu. NOS : USTA : piwo jest delikatnie nasycone i bardzo tłuste o konsystencji śmietany. Słodkie o nutach karmelu i ciasta. Do tego wiśnie maraschino. Pikantne jak kandyzowany imbir. Gorycz kontruje tak dobrze, że prawie dominuje w tym piwie. Gorzkie nuty podobne są do pestki wiśni i skórki grejpfruta. Posmak długi, słodko-gorzki z delikatną kwaśnością. ODCZUCIA : piwo świetne. Styl tego piwa dla mnie to amerykański Barley Wine. Mocno geste i słodkie o równie mocnych gorzkich i aromatycznych chmielach. Polecam. OCENA : smak : 8/10 pijalność : 6/10 styl : +1

Kita (1200) - Koper, SLOVENIA - OCT 8, 2014
Bottle, 0.33l, shared with Hoppiness crew. Hazy orange brown color with medium creamy off-white head and nice lacing. Aroma is yeasty, hoppy, fruity, floral with creamy scent, too. Taste starts with sweet caramel, follows by refreshng fruity and yeasty acidity, mouthfeel is warming and alcoholic, while finish is pleasantly bitter. Full body, syrupy texture and average carbonation in palate. Good company and such a good beer make your mood quickly better...

mcberko (7245) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - SEP 21, 2014
On tap at Cascade, pours an opaque dark orangey amber with a medium beige head. Aroma of sweet caramel malts, candied fruits, and a pronounced hop edge. Flavour is not balanced or cohesive at all, with cloying caramel and dark fruit sweetness, with jagged hops that attempt to balance. Not good at all.
