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.

tytoanderso was good to share a taste of his ’03. Powerful aroma of alcohol and maple. Flavor is very sweet, with more maple, sugar, oak, and some whiskey. Very nice palate, thick and heavy, and no carbonation. A rich liqueur for slow sipping.

Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, caramel, roasted), light hops (flowers, grass), average yeast (earth) with notes of dates, brown sugar, maple syrup, and alcohol. Full bodied, creamy, alcoholic texture, soft carbonation. Average duration, moderate sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

jimbowood (1036) - Freeport, Georgia, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Sampled @ GABF 2007. Huge alcohol, brandy, sweet malty aromas and flavors. Molasses and brown sugar dominate w/ overpowering alcohol. Too sweet, but still very complex and good. Aging will make this excellent.

yespr (37603) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2007
70 cL cobber coated ceramic bottle, #315. Pours hazy amber with no head. Thick roasted aroma with clear alcohol note. Fullbodied, thick alcohol feel. Flavour is intense with a clear alcohol flavour here too. Quite distinct roasted note and a lot of dried fruit flavours in an advanced mix. Complex and powerful. Really only for sipping from a large cognac glass on a late Friday evening during Autumn or Winter.

Heavy aroma of molasses, nutty, heavy alcoholic in the sniff, raisin, plum, prune, honey. Also heavy mix of other fruity notes. Extreme full bodied with a thick complex alcoholic texture and a soft carbonation. Heavy sweet flavor with light bitterness. Warming alcoholic dried fruity lingering finish. Explosive beer, very unique and rare experience. 28-09-2007
