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.

10th anniversary blend, shared by dan. Pours a dark Amber. Aroma is huge dark fruits, booze, sweetness. Aroma can knock you over. Taste is light, immediately evaporates as it hits your tongue. Im afraid to take a larger sip, but this is super good stuff.

bnokk (286) - Ohio, USA - JUL 20, 2015
2013 vintage, rated in 2015. APPEARANCE ? dark brown with some reddish tints. No carbonation & no head. NOSE ? very hot alcohol scents. On a deep inhale, before the alcohol burns my nose, I can pick up sweet fruity notes. FLAVOR ? also hot, but the sweetness is the most prominent flavor (aside from the alcohol). The flavor is deep and rich, with strong caramel malty flavor and fruity (think cherry) notes. The mouthfeel makes this beer feel like its in my mouth long after the end of the last sip. NOTES ? this is a tremendous beverage. It?s hard to call it a beer. This is the first beer I?ve had that has legs on the glass ? and they are significant. Overall, this lives up its reputation. It is definitely suitable for special occasions.

TampaBeer (257) - Tampa, Florida, USA - JUL 4, 2015
Intoxicating, addictive aroma. Its so good you nearly forget about proceeding with tasting the beer. Its best attribute. This is a sexy, musky brew of titillating sweetness and silkiness - the palate hampered slightly by the high alcohol presence. Impressive. 2013 vintage.
