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.

Bottle. 2 cl sample at Ölrepublikken, Göteborg. No head. Dark amber colour. Moderate malty and hoppy fantastic complex vinius aroma. More like sherry/port than beer. Light sweet powerfull flavor. Not that alcoholic. Long great complex finish. creamy palate. Fantastic experience but too expensive (120Skr).

@Jimmacks pre BeerWars Gathering-24oz ‘bottle’/kettle–pours with no head and hazy copper color. Aroma as it warms is chocolate/toffee, alcohol. Taste is toffee-sweet medium malt, warming alcohol like rum. This beer sheets on the glass like a wine. Sipping a little. Thanks Eric, joeec5’s friend.

Bottle. [thank you, Yespr]
[Vintage 2003]
Pours a light hazy red-brown with a little bit of bubbles along the rim of my glass. Aroma is extremely alcoholic, some port and wood. The alcochol leaves wonderful lace curtains on my glass. Oily mouthfeel with an extreme alcohol burn. Rather sweet, lots of dried fruit (primarily figs). Light caramel, port and wood. Far too powerful for me, but it is impressive, though.

FatPhil (11532) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 25, 2009
4cl portion from bottle (Pikkulintu, Helsinki, American Weeks 2009) - 2003 vintage
Sweet woodiness, raisins, and a touch of nut in the aroma. Lovely smooth sweet vanilla-ey palate. Taste dominated by smooth raisin, vanilla, and gentle woodiness from the barrel ageing. Both the whisky and the port barrels are easy to spot. Delicious sipper, but not worth the price (15e/4cl).

Ratman197 (11524) - Arvada, Colorado, USA - OCT 13, 2008
GABF 2008 poured a clear brown with no head. Aromas of maple, carmel, vanilla and alcohol. Palate was medium bodied, smooth syrupy and hot. Flavors of maple, carmel, vanilla, pepper and alcohol with a smooth, hot lingering sweet fin ish.

This is truly a hot sticky sweet mess of a beer!

bierkoning (11411) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - SEP 10, 2007
3rd LCRBM. 2003 bottle. Aroma of malt whisky mixed with raisin. The very sweet flavor has raisin and banana and is very brandy-like. Very malty, very alcoholic, but somehow this is very well integrated in this malt beverage (I don’t know if I can call this a beer). Magic stuff, extreme in al ways thinkable.

Lubiere (11382) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 25, 2005
Sampled at the Festival of Wood and Barrel Aged Beer at Goose Island, Nov.11, 2005. Hazy red brown ale with no head. Deep sweet aroma of vanilla beans, alcohol, sweet apples, like a Pinot de Charente. In mouth, licorice malt with anis seed, alcohol wamth, vapour-like, vanilla and nuts. Wow. Rich intense body with discreet bitterness lingering in mouth. Noted the sample served would probably be around 30$ worth...

Benzai (11049) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 22, 2012
Sampled from 2009 bottle @ Sorbon, Bromma. Huge thanks to Afram for letting me taste this! Clear dark red color, no head. Smell is very powerful: sweetness, alcohol, liquor. Taste sweetness, alcohol, burning warmth, pretty fruity actually and liquor. Sticky, lightly oily texture, full body, medium carbo. Pretty extreme!
