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!

Een bier met een heel lekkere geur, maar de smaak is daarentegen enorm slecht vind ik.

cervmagpt (391) - PORTUGAL - SEP 4, 2014
Review based on the BJCP2008 guidelines (style 19B adapted). Bottle 33 cl - Batch unknown - Bottled on 30-OCT-2012. AROMA: very rich and sweet malt aroma with dried fruits and caramel notes. smooth vinous and port like alcohol notes. low hop aromas and no diacetyl. some cardboard aroma is present. APPEARANCE: deep Brown color and almost opaque. good moussy light brown head with good retention. some viscosity derived from alcohol without pronunced "legging" TASTE: very nice range of sweet malt flavours (toasted, caramel, toffe) and some dried fruits (dried figs). balanced bitterness lingering into a medium-dry finish. very low hop flavours. faint presence of alcohol flavours. PALATE: medium smooth body with medium-low carbonation. faint alcohol warmth. OVERALL: a good strong and barleywine-like ale with good aromas and a plethora of malt flavours.

gEUS (1424) - Linden, BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours dark amber with a tiny off-white head. Caramel nose, rose water, white peach and light grapefruit. Balanced body, nice hop profile (this is more of a double IPA than a strong ale imo) and a nice medium dry bitterness. Taste is smoky leather, tangerine and some cabbage. Nice beer.

mutz (702) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 14, 2014
Amberkleurig en ik moest moeite doen om er wat kraag op te krijgen. Ruikt moutig, roomboter, caramelkoekjes. De smaak is aan de zoete kant met een wat bittere, branderige afdronk. Citrushoppig, peperig,weinig koolzuur. Ruikt en smaakt goed, puntenaftrek voor de looks en er mocht wat meer prik op zitten. Goed te drinken, dat wel.

Bottle from Dranken Geers. Dark amber colour, white foam. Complex aroma of exotic fruits, bitter hops, caramel and honey. Very well balanced: sweet with bitter finish. Very good!

(Bottle) above average beer. Dark amber, red-ish, with thick dark white head. Hoppy aroma with light malt background. Little bit sirupy and sweet. The same goes in the taste, with sweet dominant. The alcohol is not hiddent very well but it is not totaly unplesant either... Warming. Light hoppy bitterness in the back. Full body, low to medium carbonation. Bitter finish. Not quite what I would expect but not too bad either.
