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!

Caramelbruine kleur met een goede crmekleur kraag. Ruikt zoetig, crme, caramel, honing, fruit. Smaakt zoetig, caramel, crme, vanille. Beetje bitter, tikkeltje koffie ook. Best lekker. Bitterzoete, iets alcohol afdronk.

Strong reisin and dried fruit aroma. Similar taste of special malt dominated by dried fruits with strong enough continnental hop bitterness. Good balance.

Neorej80 (498) - - DEC 31, 2014
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2015 Strong sweet and sour cherry aroma, sharp coffee, dark malts and some grass (hops). Dark yellow, almost red and cloudy. Off white head. Complex flavours, a lot of diversity. Round flavour, everything comes together the right way: cherries, plums, coffee, brown sugar, rasins, smooth malty and a bitter hop touch in the end with rasins and coffee. Nice!

UPDATED: JAN 9, 2015 WOW. Bottle, 33cl, pours intense tea with copper reflections and a great long-lasting white head. Gorgeous! Aroma is very interesting with syrupy cherry sweetness of dense propagation mixed with pine needles. Taste is very malty, cherry, leaving kind of liqueur feel with bitterness balanced just fine and spicy aftertaste on the tongue tip. Perfect carbonation, full body, oily, intense, complex, rich, alcohol hidden, high drinkability. Great stuff.

Prufrockstar (2110) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 14, 2014
Draft at Mikkeller SF. Clear ruby pour, frothy white head with moderate duration. Aroma: hard candy cherry (like, jolly rancher) at the forefront dominates this for me. Floral component as well. Taste: malty, cherry, somewhat sweet with a moderately bitter floral hop presence. Some plums? Theres this flavor I associate with plummy old barleywines, but it isnt really plum - plummish? Palate: full body, creamy smooth texture, average carbonation. Overall: it would be way fun to see what a HOTD collaboration on this beer would look like.

Rating #1101 - May 24, 2014 - Spring Fling @ Liquor Select - My history brain cant stop thinking about the treaty of Utrecht as I approach this beer - Aroma is burnt sugar maltiness - molasses, caramel, cookie dough - billowing out of a bubbly amber pour. Quite boozy, but fairly well disguised, this has a distinct North american hop presence in the finish. Almost like a dutch version of Arrogant Bastard. Tasty.

rikstar (2563) - NETHERLANDS - NOV 28, 2014
0,33l fles uitgeschonken diep roodbruin van kleur met een beperkte creme kleurige cremkraag. Geur is zoet met hoppig karakter, maar ook bosvruchten en taart, met op de achtergrond ook de caramel en zelfs iets van cacao. Smaak begint zoet met wederom bosvruchten door het dikke romige mondgevoel vruchtenyoghurt de nasmaak ook de bitterheid van de hop en gist. Dit is een erg mooi complex bier, zeker geen doordrinker.

Gerbeer (3560) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 8, 2014
340 ml bottle. Pours a yellow brown with lots of suspended sediment and light head. Aromas of caramel, rubber, and malt extract. Flavors are similar with emphasis on chewy sweet malts.

Maakun (5158) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 24, 2014
Tap at Kaapse Brouwers. Reddish brown with medium sized cream colored head. Yeasty and spicy, with Apple, berries, vegetal bitter finish. Light sweet but nothing too much. Medium bodied. Nice.

Nocturne (1973) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - OCT 23, 2014
Keg at PSBH, Manchester. Hazy reddish shade with a finger of head. Hoppy aroma. Taste is also hoppy, fizzy sherbet, malty in the style of an amber ale. Mouthfeel is slightly creamy. Pretty nice. The malt and hops seem to both contribute distinctively and work in harmony.
