COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
To create Utopias, the brewers at Sam Adams used traditional brewing ingredients including all four types of Noble hops, which add a slightly earthy, herbal taste. The spiciness of the hops really comes alive. In fact, Utopias MMII has even been described by some as almost "fiery" -- a fitting description for the strongest beer in history. Beyond the special brand of hops, Utopias features ingredients that truly set it apart from other varieties of beer. Utopias MMII contains caramel and Vienna malts for its rich amber color and several different types of yeast including a variety found in champagne. $100 a bottle and it's limited to 3000 bottles, which look like copper brew kettles.

Crags brought out big guns for me to sample this was first of 3 heavy hitters. Pours dark amber. Nose is alcohol and dried fruit. Tastes of sherry, rum, dried fruits, toffee, and leather. Very sweet but very enjoyable. Alcohol burn on finish.

From notes. Enjoyed at the Ashley’s Rare & Vintage Beer TasteFest on June 07. Vintage 2013. 1.5 oz pour. Finally got to try this gem, and good lord it was so worth the cost of this taste! The pour is a nice dark ruby with no real presence of lace on this. The nose is pretty incredible. This one seemed a little hot, but there is some incredible caramel, vanilla, some dark fruit notes. Toffee is also present. The flavor is also a little warm throughout, but the caramel and the dark fruits are just wonderful. The mouth feel is great. Thick and viscous, and covering extraordinarily well. There is no carbonation and a warming, lingeringly smooth sweet aftertaste. Just an incredible experience!

Generously shared by BVery - wow thanks!! Clear dark amber pour with no head. Massive raisin, tawny port nose. Very nice nose. Fantastic taste - a tawny explosion of flavors coating my pallet. Wow. I want more.

Maltser85 (256) - Fargo, North Dakota, USA - JUN 27, 2014
Pours a murky brown, mahogany. Super thick, almost syrup like. Aroma of huge bourbon barrels, vanilla, soft oak, coconut. Dark fruit, chocolate. Taste is all of that and then some. Almost a sherry sense to this. It is amazing. Moderately undescribable. I am left partially speechless. This is of course, a full bodied beer. Loved it!

monkeychugg55 (860) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - JUN 25, 2014
2013 vintage 29.5% ABV. Snifter at Longshot beer dinner. Looks like a dark whiskey and smells like one from 10ft away. No head but really nice legs. The aroma has a lot of vanilla, oak, and rumminess. The flavor is equally complex and adds figs, raisons, and maple syrup. Thick and velvety with a balanced finish despite all the alcohol. Alcohol warming is an understatement.

2009 vintage shared by Scott. Pours a murky brown color with absolutely no head. Aroma is boozy bourbon, rubbing alcohol, dark fruit, caramel, and oxidation. Taste of raisins, dates, vanilla, thick sweet caramel, and boozy bourbon notes. Lots of alcohol burn.
