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!

Gurthnar (4534) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - MAY 18, 2016
Bottle. Quite assertive hoppiness, grassy, citrusy and resiny, mixing well with massive malty backbone and rather full body of this beer. Dried fruits, raisins, light caramel. Surprisingly easy drinking, alcohol hidden completely. Very good.

brewtalita (183) - Prague, CZECH REPUBLIC - MAR 31, 2016
Amber, low head. Aroma honey, molasses, candi sugar, caramel and fruitiness (ambivalent). Palate smooth, low carbonation. Bit too sweet for me, but I like the typical dutch candi sugar/tofee taste. Bit cloying, otherwise a good beer.

Fules (315) - Gyöngyös, HUNGARY - MAR 25, 2016
Közepes, tartós hab, barna szín. Illata intenzív, malátás alapon markánsan citrusos, kissé karamelles és picikét gyantás. Íze markánsan keserű, friss zöldfűszeres, citrusos és picit gyantás. Hosszú utóíze kesernyés, és gyantás, kicsi gyümölcsösséggel. Testes, de nem nehéz, kissé száraz érzetű. Az alkoholt sikerült teljesen elrejteni.

drjoeng (651) - SINGAPORE - SEP 7, 2015
9.4% ABV. Belgian Strong Ale. Poured out of the bottle a brown amber color. About 18şSRM. Nose has nice clean slightly fruity flavors. Clean sweet aroma. Very pleasing. Mouthfeel is clean and light with a beautifull lighly hopped finish. I don’t usually comment on the finish, but this so cleanly blaanced that it is really just the most outstaning trait of this beer. Very well done. Clean sweet well roastd malts with nice biscuit, graham cracker, sweet barley flavors. Balanced first by some nice carbonation, then a straight clean bitter hop finish that is neither prolonged or hysop-like. As you let it bloom long after you’ve had your last sip and your palate is well free of the alcoholic embrace, you start to notice cherry blossoms, a faint oleander and some lilac and bubble gum - like aromas whether that’s the alcohol talking, I commit it to your tasting and discernment. Goes on favorites list. Easy drinking and pleasant in all the best ways but beware the sneaky kick in the nuts.

New Beer Fistributors, NYC bottle: pours dark amber with a beige head. Aroma is toffee, dark fruit, and heavy hops. Taste is bitter and sweet. Plenty of heft. Quite malty. Heavy stuff, but not too bitter. Not a bad beer
