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.

Enough has said about this beer -- I have very little to add. The aroma is the biggest defect in this beer ... slightly medicinal, but note I still gave it a high score because every scent around it is gorgeous. The flavor of malt and hops positively explode. This is, of course, a beer of extremes. This stuff is one moment a scotch, one moment a barley wine, and the next a rich liquor. Heady stuff.

UPDATED: JUL 13, 2006 ’05 bottled #03221, poured a deep bronze with no head. Aromas of vanilla extract, maple syrup, and alcohol. Flavor is vanilla, maple syrup, surprisingly smooth, with lots of complexity, and a slight fiery burn in the chest on the way down, good healthy body, alcohol warms you with each sip, flavors burst on your tongue. Beer perfection, a drinking experience of a lifetime.

One of the finest extreme beers I’ve ever tasted. Tastes more like a cognac than a beer, but it has none of the distilled "gasoline-like" taste of most spirits. Truly a revolutionary drink, and the highest alcohol content in the world for beer!

Had this on draught at GABF 2004 - Loved it almost like a very smooth cognac.

EBF ’06: Strong, but without the harsh bite of a regular hard liquor. Flavors of sherry, raisins, and vanilla. A good beer to take your time with, and a great canditate for a snifter rather than a pint glass.

UPDATED: OCT 3, 2007 Bottle. Hazy orange red coloured with a small head. Aroma of dried fruits, brandy and honey. Sweet flavour of brandy, dried fruits, honey and alcohol. Reminds me of a good sherry.

Deep golden amber colour. No head. First it is sherry aroma, then caramel, molasses, vanilla and raisin aroma. Lots of caramel and molasses in the flavor. Also lots of vanilla. Long warming caramel finish.

FoBAB: oily copper/mahogany with no head whatsoever, completely flat almost looks like cooking oil. Growing legs all over the glass. Aroma is all over the place. Lots of oak, vanilla, bourbon, caramel/mollasses, and burning alcohol. Thick oily mouthfeel. Flavor is dominated up front by the malt sweetness, caramel/mollasses almost like candi-sugar it’s so sweet. Through the middle the oak and vanilla come through with the bourbon and alcohol taking over in the finish. Finishes very hot, like a shot of liqouer. Nice overall, but you definately don’t need more than an ounce of this stuff at a time.
