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!

UPDATED: DEC 7, 2013 Bottled, courtesy of caesar. Orange/brown colored, almost no head. Absolutely fantastic fruity and flowery nose, hops all the way, lots of Cascade, but also more fruity notes (probably the Galena then). To my surprise the use of large amount of hop does not result in an extremely bitter flavor, which is probably because of the big malty backbone, creating a thick complex and very well balanced brew. Lasting bitter finish. I generally don’t like these massively hopped beers because of the astringent bitterness, but when balanced like this you get an absolute masterpiece. Rooie Dop USA, i absolutely love it!

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

Cerveja holandesa com influências belgas, a Utrecht Strong Ale é boa para ser apreciada em um copo de tulipa para que o aroma característico e forte faça parte da experiência. O aroma é tradicional das trapistas, porém mais concentrado no lúpulo forte que também garantirá o amargor. A cerveja é marrom escura e não tem espuma e é possível ver sedimentos suspensos. Apesar da influência belga, trata-se de uma cerveja muito mais equilibrada do que a tradição trapista/abadia prega, sem excessos no amargor e na fermentação. O teor alcoólico é alto e o amargor presente, porem não exagerado. O toque amadeirado que não existe no aroma se faz presente agora, contribuindo inclusive com um leve toque rústico de estábulo, sem elemento adicionais ao malte encorpado e ao lúpulo. Boa para ser apreciada com queijos fortes, uma cerveja holandesa mais amigável que suas parentes belgas.

Hazy amber color beer with a huge, lasting and frothy beige head. Aroma is fruity with caramel, hops and grass. Flavor is very sweet with alcohol and hop bitterness reminders. The end is long, sticky and dry.
