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.

"A beer unlike any other, this one has a warm, sweet flavor highlighted with notes of caramel, vanilla and oak. Touted as The Worlds Strongest Beer. 25%" Im 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).

Bottle thanks to Mittenator. Clear amber/copper with no head or carbonation. Aroma is a little hot and smells like molasses and brown sugar. Taste is incredibly complex and awesome. Molasses, butterscotch, brown sugar, toffee, dark fruit. Full body and oily in mouth.

reebtogi (4088) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - JAN 27, 2014
2013 Edition. 710ml bottle pours a dark brown color with no head or lacing. Aroma is alcohol, caramel, vanilla and port wine. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with some red wine and cognac flavors and a dominant alcohol burn. Heavy body with no carbonation. Flavors are much more complex than I can describe here. This is quite an exquisite brew and if you can afford it, you must try it.

10th Anniversary bottle. Poured into a mini-snifter. Pours a darker copper. The aroma has a lot of rich caramel, creme brle, and toffee notes. Tastes of coconut, toffee, and caramel. Really sweet. No carbonation. Pretty good burn on the back of the tongue. Glad I finally got to try this beer.
