COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Big, caramel, vanilla with notes of fruit and malt. Finishing clean and crisp. The package is as elegant as the beer it contains: a cobalt blue bottle with platinum lettering, finished with a natural cork and sealing wax, encased in a cherry wood box. There are only 3,000 bottles of Samuel Adams Millennium, and each is signed and numbered by Koch. A bottle of Samuel Adams Millennium costs about two hundred dollars.

This is a beer? More like an elegant alcoholic drink. The vanilla and caramel is very noticable, it tastes great.

UPDATED: OCT 9, 2010 Shared with six friends. Aroma is sweet caramel, sugary, lots of higher alcohols. Taste is sweet caramel, some sherry oxidation. Finish is cloyingly sweet and goes on forever. Medicinal, floral, smoky, and intensely sweet, Some sugary alcohol on the finish. Aroma has some medicinal qualities to it too. I love this beer. If I could drink it every day I think I would get diabetes. Hedonistic rating here, folks. The sweetness of this beer isnt so overwhelming to make it a sugary mess. There is so much more going on in this beer: yeasty notes, some fruitiness, et cetera. Just wow. -re-rate-- Holy fuck. Seriously. From the Floriday 2 day tasting including: Yellow Bus, Framboos, M, Loerik, Bourgogne, J&J Blauw, et cetera, this won, hands down. Simply incredible.

Marc Nolan I owe you in a big way for this one. A: Pours a nice still chestnut brown. Thick and clingy. S: Pure sex in a bottle. Rich sweet toffee with brown sugar and nuts. Vanilla, light oak, and booze. T: I have died and gone to heaven. Wow does this one live up to any expectation that I ever had. Tons of candy sweetness. Toffee, caramel, maple, and brown sugar. Mild candied dark fruits with fresh scratched vanilla beans. Just a dash of the booze I picked up in the nose. M: Rich, thick, decadent. D: Awesome I could sip on it until the entire bottle is gone. Pass on the Utopias and seek this one out. It is worth the worth the price it commands on the bidding sites.

Im not normally this pithy, but Ill simply say that this beer was simply sublime, and easily transcended the realm of beer and became something far more ethereal. Id go into more detail, but my last bottle was drained in 2001, and I just realized that Id never posted my comments years ago, so this just seemed like the time appointed by the Universe to rectify the omission.

This beer had pretty much all I wanted from it and more. I was lucky enough to finally get a handbottle and thought Id put in my first rate in years. Pours still chestnut/cola brown. Aromas of vanilla, nuts, oak, alcohol, chocolate, and more complexity. Taste is very similar with a huge punch of vanilla and nuttiness. Some alcohol burn but its very welcome and still doesnt make me think that this is 20% alcohol. Such an amazing beer. Utopias is great, but I wish they would just reproduce Millennium every other year. Mmm.....

Only tried it twice.This is one great beer, the maple undertones really come out when warmed. The warming effect of this incredible beer is something I will always remember. For a really strong beer the fruityness on the palate was surprising. Someone out there get me more.

Woo! More like a weak brandy than a beer. Flavor is almost candylike--erm--if they made beer candy that is. Worth trying at least once for most people, so good luck finding it.

UPDATED: APR 3, 2007 Bottle 2643/3000 sampled with Mad Indian and D.B. Pours orange/murky brown with no head. Aroma of vanilla, oak, maple syrup, molasses, and caramel. The flavor is smooth, caramel, vanilla, molasses, brown sugar, oak, syrup. Excellent is pretty much all i have to say!!!! Much like the Utopias, but no fiery burn, and more wood flavor.
