Pours rich, red amber glow. Aroma is much like a tawny port, fermented apple, cream sherry, cognac, dried fruit, sweet and salty soy sauce. Flavor is much the same with an upfront saltiness and mild sourness that distinguishes it from sherry and port. Unique and delicious, but not for the $$$ it costs.

4.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 18/20
Tasted from the bottle, @Mikkeller bar, Copenhagen, 04/05/2013.
Pours ultra muddy, ditty dark brown, with some particles floating in it.
Aroma is phenomenal, no alcohol at all! Raisins, dried fruits, some port notes, slightly woody.
Taste is immediately warming, but with signs of booze again. A lot of sweetness, dark fruits, cherries, plums, slight tart cherry notes in the end.
Aftertaste is alcohol tickling, with lovely sweet prunes character.
A beer to drink on very special occasions, for sure -

Harsh, but decent taste. Alcohol content causes almost a hard liquor-like bouquet.

While not quite as powerful as the Millennium, the Utopias has similar fruity and nutty flavors, with a stronger touch of the whisky barrels in which it was fermented. Like it's older sibling, though, the Utopias dances on the tongue and leaves you with a pleasant sensation, and a bit of a 'ping' in the sinuses. Quite nice.

3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Clear, dark golden colour. No foam
Aroma; There is a very present flor-aroma, the same aroma you find in sherry. Also, dried fruit, raisins, walnuts and alot of spices from the hops.
Flavours; Dominated by dried fruit and nuts (walnuts in particulare). A hot, alcohol afterburn, but a complex beer. Loong lasting aftertaste, drink it like a fine spirit.
Summary; Is this beer? Or is it not? Im not the one to judge, but it is sure as hell good!

This beer has a very strong aroma. The alcohol gets into your nostrils and blooms, but a nice treat is that the taste is opposite of the aroma. It doesn’t have that big alcohol taste its sweeter and more palattable. Definately some caramel flavors with a smoothness for the finish.

Most impressive bottle (# 07906) I have ever seen. Wow. Served in small plastic cup. Clear, warm copper color. No head. Aroma is pure, fruity alcohol - more like cognac than beer. Amazing. Flavor is enormous and luxurious - again, more reminiscent of cognac than of beer. Long, hugely warm and utterly smooth finish. Thick, full mouthfeel. A sipping beer if I ever saw/tasted one.
Thanks a million, Jeppe and Michael!

As a huge fan of port I love this beer. Very warming, with flavor of figs, dates, raisins, and maple syrup. So rich and complex. Doesnt taste like beer at all. Honestly taste like some of the finest port I’ve had. Hits hard and tingles all around the mouth. A real delight.

Pours a dark brown color with no head what so ever. Aromas of strong alcohol with some sweet fruits, molasses, and yeast. Flavors of a regular barley wine a huge burn and some more sweetness. Thanks Dak for the taste!
