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!

Bullit (4445) - Burgos, - JAN 4, 2013
Bottle, courtesy of skortila. Ruby reddish - brown colour, tan head. Nose is hoppy, fruity and floral, oranges, biscuit malts. Fairly bitter. Flavour is biscuit malty, caramel, slight toastiness, fairly bitter. Barleywine-esque minus the sweetness. Really good stuff.

rondphoto (4059) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - AUG 5, 2016
bottle @ Belmont Party Supply / Dayton OH --- dated 31/03/14 --- Hazy amber brown color, bubbly beige head that stays around a cover, mottled lace covering. Taste is smooth malt that moves through light carbonation to smooth light hops. Maybe this was bigger when it was fresh - now it is a smooth light (not 9.1% anymore) malty brew. My bottle only labels it "Rooie Dop Utrecht Ale," but the specs match on everything else.

Leighton (18526) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 10, 2016
Bottle at home in London. Pours rich amber with a frothy, lasting beige head. Lots of hearty ripe fruit in the nose, plenty of toffee, fruit cake, figs. Medium to heavy sweet flavour with sturdy bread, creamy toffee, tons of Dane fruit cake, light piney bitterness. Full bodied, oily and chewy, with fine carbonation. Lightly warming to finish, chewy and gooey, with raisins, more fruit cake, some dried cherry, dates and figs. Really rich and tasty.

Gurthnar (5003) - 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 (237) - 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 (794) - 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.
