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.

Pours a burgundy color with no head or lacing. Smells of figs, vanilla and alcohol. Nice sweet alcohol taste, taste like it smells. Wow.

reggiedunlop (3448) - The dub c, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 11, 2014
Ruby colored pour with no head. Aroma of port, bourbon, vanilla, brown sugar. Flavor follows suit...very warming but not boozy or hot...beautiful marriage of barrel flavors and sweet brown sugar/fruit notes. Mouthfeel is slightly syrupy with a very warm bourbony/vanilla finish.

boFNjackson (4191) - Portland, Oregon, USA - DEC 11, 2014
Bottle... Poured deep amber/crimson with no head. Aroma of brown sugar, maple syrup, and Port-like fortified wine qualities. Super sweet, mildly cloying. Maple syrup and Sherry/Port-like notes. No carbonation with full mouthfeel. Insanely boozy and potent. Lingers with alcohol.

Thank you Toby for this. Bottle from 2011. Poured thick and smelled of honey and booze. Was very sweet which helped cover up the high abv. Everything blended well and was very smooth.

2011 vintage thanks to Toby. I have hid it fresh and with a few years much better. Pours out burnt orange amber no head. Nose is great it remind me of apis jadwiga. Sweet honey spice and lots of heat. Taste is sweet caramel spice peat smoke and lots of burn.

Clownoisseur (362) - Buchanan, Michigan, USA - NOV 25, 2014
2013 vintage, 2 oz. pour into tasting snifter. Amber/copper in color. Still, no carbonation. Aromas of caramel, toffee, vanilla, char, leather, overripe fruit and a wafting alcohol. Nothing subtle here. Taste is very sharp. Again, bold flavors of caramel, toffee, vanilla, leather, earth...a slight tang...and loaded with booze. Mouthfeel is syrupy and oily. Drinks like a liquor. Good stuff, appreciate it for pushing boundaries.

Niesamowite piwo. Najbardziej gładkie, aksamitne i miękkie piwo jakie kiedykolwiek próbowałem. Niesamowite bogactwo w aromacie i smaku. Wspaniałe alkoholowe grzanie w ustach i w przełyku. Cudowne piwo, niezapomniane przeżycie.

"Awesome complex flavor, but this is a beer in ingredients only. if you expect anything even similar to a strong barleywine, you;ll be surprised and/or disappointed. But the aroma of spices, vanilla, maple, and frikkin alcohol are great. Nothing comparable, except really good cognac, maybe..."
