4.8 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Uh, remember that game Clue? Mr. Woods in the study with a Utopias bottle.
Yep. Is there an eleven for appearance. Simply the bottle with its little window showing Sam that you can open or close is enough for me. The appearance of the drink itself is hues of amber and copper. The aroma is vanilla, banana, honey, toffee, raisin. Port? Cognac? Beer? The mouthfeel is
medium bodied and slow, I mean, no carbonation and filling. A very lovely finish that leaves a resonant warmth.

Remember that show "I Dream of Jeannie"...well do you? You know she had that little sassy bottle she would crawl out of from time to time to satisfy the needs of Astronaut Nelson? Where was I going with this....oh yeah, the bottle this junk came in looked like Jeannie’s bottle, but nothing like a bottle of Blatz. So there is that. Or not.
Overall not too shabby, but I couldn’t see myself shelling out the requisite cash for this. Thankfully I have a friend who is not as perspicacious with his money. So what it is, what it was, and what it will be is Blatz........you cannot go wrong with the Dicttator of beers!

This is a real treat. The taste is very thick and reminds you of a good congac. The dominant flavour for me is fudge and dark fruits with chocolate. I will buy this again if i get the chance to.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
2003 bottle in a wine glass at Split thy Skull. Pours deep amber with no head. Aroma of toffee and caramel malts, light oak, strong bourbon, some vanilla, light hints of hops, and a little sweetness plus a little alcohol. Flavor the same. Thick texture. A cool beer but not worth the price.

Splendid . . . and gets better with age. This is more of a liquor than a beer. Think very malty beer. Over age, the booziness goes away. Wonderful.

Vintage 2012. Quelle belle opportunité que de boire ce divin nectar. Le monde avance grâce aux utopies et surtout il permet aux hommes de continuer de rêver que la vie n’est pas que compétition, avarice, profit et performance. En c’est temps où l’austérité est sur toutes les lèvres quoi de mieux que de rêver d’utopie. À la manière d’un vieux tawny ou d’un Bual 20 ans cette bière de méditation nous ramène à l’essentiel; l’amour, l’amitié, le partage et au dessus de tout, la vie. Merci

Vintage 2012. Puissants arômes et saveurs de porto, de très vieux tawny, de liqueur de noisettes, de caramel croquant, de tire d’érable, de noix et fruits séchés, de brandy de pommes, de cidre de glace, de cidre de feu et de chocolat. Unique et réconfortante. Merci à Kevin pour cette belle opportunité.

Looks like liquid caramel, thick and syrupy. Absolutely fantastic aroma of caramel, brown sugar, citrus, maple, and cognac. Flavor is caramel, butterscotch, orange, booze, oak and vanilla. Thick, sticky, unguent. Amazing.

4.2 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
1 oz pour from a 10th anniversary bottle (vintage 2012). Apperance is brown and still. Aroma, wow, massive hits of maple, vanilla, oak, caramel, and nose stinging booze. Taste, is sweet maple, vanilla, oak, butterscotch, booze, man this is really strong, burns on the way down. Full bodied , no carb. This is somewhere between a fine brandy/cognac and a barleywine that has been put through the eisbock, very complex, lots of booze, certainly more like a liquor then a beer, but yea, very good in "small" samples.

A remarkable feat. Strong malty sweet aroma mixed with alcohol. Beautiful copper and amber color. No head but very oily and viscous. Near perfect palate with weight and smoothness. The flavor is not for everyone but with a pleasant blend of sweetness, caramel, alcohol and wood. It borders the limits into liquor but still holds to beer characteristics. Enjoyed it.
