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.

At common table with Taylor. Pours flat ruby read bronze cloudy. Aroma is huge musky earthy sherry, molasses. Taste is pungent molasses fig. It’s a slow sipper obviously, but a beautiful fig sugar plumb flavor that is savory and very nice. The burn is really soft and warming in a great way. I just need a fire, and a cigar.

It pours copper with ruby highlights; there is absolutely no head. The aroma is violently alcoholic, with notes of: licorice, toffee, burnt sugar, raisins, and dark rum. The taste is medium sweet, with medium astringency; the aroma notes carry through into the taste with the addition of heavily iodine laden scotch. The palate is heavy bodied, very oily, has no carbonation, quite astringent, and a medium finish. Overall, a total jip for the price; though definitely worth experiencing.

Bottle - pours a transparent copper/amber . Big raisin and woody aromas . Taste is a mix of dark fruit / mild tart cherry . Glycerol palate . Very cognac like . Taste is great but the $ is ridiculous . ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Tasted at GABF 2013. Absolutely took my breath away. At nearly 30% I was expecting harsh alcohol like a whiskey. This was nothing like that. The aroma was amazing and the taste so incredibly smooth. Boozy bit not harsh, nutty and malty with smooth hints of fruit, vanilla, oak, chocolate. Definitely deserves a much higher rating than it has. ---Rated via Beer Buddy

2013 bottle of Samuel Adams Utopia with my good friend Joe. This beer has a strong aroma of alcohol, bourbon, maple, vanilla, and wood. It is a very malty beer with no carbonation that dances upon the tip of your tongue and rejuvinates your spirit!. The maple flavors are the most dominant, followed by the taste of vanilla bourbon. The apperance is copper in color like the brew kettle it was aged in. Full bodied beer with creamy texture, flat carbonation, and a long finish. Overall I have never tasted anything like this, and I don’t think any craft beer has ever come close. Everyone should try this once in their life if they are a craft beer lover.

Bottle shared by Aaron at California 10k event. Pours light brown with no head. Beers flat. Aroma of booze. Taste is harsh booze with a suttle sweet finish. Like taking a shot of a cognac.

bmerz (665) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - FEB 8, 2014
Bottle 2012 in DEC 2014. Pours ruby crystalline no carbonation. Aroma is basically port raisins cherries rich malt. Flavor is the same with pronounced boozy burn and Bourbon finish with bitter strain all the way through. Feel is silken and thick to start then the heat kicks in and warms all the way down. Less intense than I expected but really enjoyable. Barely beer.

"A beer unlike any other, this one has a warm, sweet flavor highlighted with notes of caramel, vanilla and oak. Touted as The World’s Strongest Beer. 25%" I’m curious to see if this beer was fortified. It is better to compare this to port as it has all of the properties of a fortified wine. Pours very thick, looks like brandy. The smell is very intense with all of the elements listed above plus dark plum and some blackberry. The taste is sweet and potent, like maple syrup with vodka. Overpowering but delicious. Worth having as a treat (or dessert).

Clear reddish amber of color. An aroma of port, prunes, sweets and alcohol. A flavor of alcohol, port, rum, sweets and candy.
