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.

Incredible sensation I felt when I tried this. Extremely high alcohol level, it´s much more a liquor thanm a beer I think... The aroma is great, with caramel, chocolate, but the high alcohol afects it. The aftertaste is awesome, the chocolate is evident, almost no carbonation. Dark color, dark amber, almost black.

Bottle, sampled twice in the span of a week, thank you both for the shares, aroma is sweet vanilia and oak, taste is some vanilia, kind of bourbon, some dates, maybe a little chocolate flavour, the alcohol is quite well hidden in fact, overall glad to try it.

From one of those wacky 2012 edition bottles.

The beer pours brown and still.
The aroma is strongly alcoholic, it’s got cherry & caramel... It’s very sweet smelling very much like a cordial.

The flavor is boozy & sweet... plenty of hot alcohol, plenty of maple syrup offered, lot’s of caramel lots of cherry.

Neat beer, but I’m glad I never spent the money on a bottle of it/got to try it before I ever did.

O.M.G. Never had a beer quite like this. Strong aroma of hard liquor, Scotch. Chocolate flavoring as well. 25% ABV? All beer should be like this!

Poured from a room temperature bottle. Medium brown color, no head. Smells of rich malt alcohol. Sweet thick body of nectar with a holy alcohol flavor. Yummy. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma of chocolate and a colour of chocolate. An intoxicating taste of chocolate and liqueur with an incredible palate of chocolate and alcohol.

Dark coppery colour without head. Aroma has notes of sherry, caramel, toffee woth a strong alcoholic sensation in the nose. Flavor is sweet, but not cloying, slightly caramel and notes of sherry, barrel notes and with a alcoholic sensation on palate that his hidden by sweet and sherry notes.
