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!

gEUS (1023) - 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 (563) - 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) 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.

At Borefts Beer Festival 2013. Hazy dark amber with a lasting off-white head. Fruity and yeasty aroma, reminding me of mediocre homebrew. Sweet malty and yeasty flavour with a bitter finish
