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 (4565) - 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.

PietS (224) - Bergen op Zoom, NETHERLANDS - APR 17, 2017
Roasted malts, a bit of fruity and spicy aromas, medium bitterness. Well balanced, full bodied. Has some likeliness to a porter or a stout. Very nice beer.

adasko (2228) - Poznan, POLAND - APR 1, 2017
Bottle, almost 3 years after bottling date. Aroma is sweet, fruity, caramel, even winey a bit. Very complex, very pleasant. Taste is much more on the caramel site, with some delicate fruity notes. Its super smooth. Not even wisp of alcohol in taste, just a warming in the stomach. Awesome, very well matured beer.

Piana zbita, drobna, trwała, pięknie oblepiająca szkło. Barwa bursztynowo rubinowa, opalizująca, z intensywnie unoszącymi się bąbelkami. Aromat z jednej strony chmielowy, żywiczny, ze sporą ilością białych owocw, z drugiej mocno słodowy, karmelowy, rodzynkowy z przyjemnym utlenieniem słodkiego wina. W smaku gładkie, miękkie, oleiste, jest dość słodkie, akacjowe, likierowe, czuć dojrzałe jasne winogrona, rodzynki, żywicę, syrop klonowy, landrynki. Goryczka punktowa, średnio intensywna, świerkowa w profilu. Wysycenie drobniutkie, poszczypujące, średnio intensywne do niskiego. Alkoholu nie stwierdzono...
Po prawie 2,5 latach od zabutelkowania trunek nabrał szlachetnych cech przyjemnego utlenienia, udział chmielu z dominującego stał się subtelny w aromacie i dopełniający całości w smaku... Właśnie takie ASA lubię.

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 (20821) - 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 (5732) - 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.
