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.

2013 bottle. Pours a clear caramel/ruby colour with huge legs and no head. Aroma is massive and complex. Slightly tart with notes of chocolate covered cherries, dark fruits, maple, alcohol, vanilla, and bourbon. So much going on. One of the best smelling things I’ve ever had. Taste is sweet and complex with dark fruits, maple, and chocolate covered cherries. Full body with no carbonation. Syrupy texture paired with a sensation that attacks the tip of the tongue. Alcohol warmth but not a harsh alcohol flavour. Very mild and rounded. Overall the most complex beer I’ve had. An experience for sure. Lots of dark fruits, and dark cherries with a huge aroma and aggressive mouth feel. Awesome!

Bottle. Moderate malt aroma of caramel,light cooked orange and perfume for the hops, moderate beef broth for the yeast, with raisin, dried fig, toffee, tawny port and lots of alcohol. There is no head, no lacing, but it does have good legs. Color is clear mahogany. Flavor startes heavily sweet and lightly acidic, then the long finish is heavily sweet, lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium to full, ether-like with no carbonation and a harsh alcoholic finish. I’ve seen the good and the bad reviews of this beer, and after one try, I love it.

2 cl @ Glød,Oslo March 20, 2014 Its like drinking a good madeira or portwine. Dark brown in color and a bit thick,No head or carbonation. Aroma is malt,dark sugar,a bit vanilla,alcohol and some dried dark fruits. Tastes a bit sweet and warming due to high ABV. A nice small taste as a dessert drink.

Pours honey amber color with no had and no carbonation. Wonderful nose - sherry, raisins and fig. Taste is very sherry like, sugary with raisins. I do not get "beer" at all. Still, this was excellent. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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
