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.

fonefan (44143) - VestJylland, DENMARK - JUN 29, 2006
Fiery color, and tastes warm all the way down. Nose is brandy and alcohol, hints of sweet malt scattered. Toffee aroma and flavor. This is basically a sherry masquerading as a beer

yespr (40836) - 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.

Ungstrup (34666) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 21, 2005
[At GABF 2004, Denver] An amber beer with no head, but the liquid makes "curtains" on the glass like a strong wine or liquor. The aroma is woody with strong notes of alcohol, but also overripe fruits, sherry, and bourbon. The flavor is powerful with notes of plums, other overripe fruits, and loads of alcohol, that burns the throat, as a strong sherry. The end is dry woody. An experience - but to me, not a beer.

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.

oh6gdx (25472) - Vasa, FINLAND - OCT 3, 2006
Bottled (2003 vintage). Hazyish reddish orange colour, no head. Aroma is plum, fruits and alcohol. Exactly like a sweet Madeira wine. Plum, caramel, citrusfruits. Lovely one!

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2007
(Copper coated ceramic bottle) Courtesy of yespr. Bottle # 315. Pours ahazy amber with absolutely no head. Fat aroma of caramel, overripe fruit and alcohol. Very - no EXTREMELY full-bodied - this pours thick as maple syrup. Intense and very complex notes of cognac, sweet caramel and fruit. The finish is oh so hot with nothing much but alcohol. Extreme - and extremely challenging. A masterpiece. 280907

omhper (23716) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - SEP 25, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 28, 2004 Bottled. Reddish brown, thick, no head. Balsamic port like aroma. Very sweet and woody. Immensly malty and extremely rich. Warming and complex. Strong oak barrel character. More like cognac or madeira than beer, and even though I find it gimmicky and overly pricey I must admit that I really like it.

anders37 (23359) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2006
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.
