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!

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.

9.4% ABV. Belgian Strong Ale. Poured out of the bottle a brown amber color. About 18ºSRM. 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.

From zombier. In duvel glass. Playing KB Dark Side. Maybe my palatte isnt trained well.enough, but ive been unablr to enjoy this. Ive found it too sweet and alcoholic to my taste, in some way similar to anarchis alchemist but a bit better, a bit less strong, but still not enjoyable
