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.

Small glass at Amundsen, june 2011. Dark brown, looks almost black, of course thereís no head here. Strong aroma, alcohol, syrup, roast, oak. Sweet malty taste with more alcohol and peach. Warm feel and finish, different but good

Sampled at EBF. I was truly excited to finally have the opportunity to sample this one. Pours a clear copper with no head. Looks like bourbon. Nose is all booze, plum, brandy, cognac, cherry, wood, heavy port. Flavor is all port, slightly sugar, ice cider, rum, brandy, cognac, a little windex. Full, hot, sticky finish. One of a kind.

From one of those wacky 2012 edition bottles.

The beer pours brown and still.
The aroma is strongly alcoholic, itís got cherry & caramel... Itís very sweet smelling very much like a cordial.

The flavor is boozy & sweet... plenty of hot alcohol, plenty of maple syrup offered, lotís of caramel lots of cherry.

Neat beer, but Iím glad I never spent the money on a bottle of it/got to try it before I ever did.

It pours copper with ruby highlights; there is absolutely no head. The aroma is violently alcoholic, with notes of: licorice, toffee, burnt sugar, raisins, and dark rum. The taste is medium sweet, with medium astringency; the aroma notes carry through into the taste with the addition of heavily iodine laden scotch. The palate is heavy bodied, very oily, has no carbonation, quite astringent, and a medium finish. Overall, a total jip for the price; though definitely worth experiencing.

Sample from VilleValla Pub. Dark amber with no head (due to sampling). Smells of raisins and booze. Taste of raisins, some plum, caramell, toffee, sweetness, booze (sort of whiskey-like). Low carbonation. Overall quite good.

Extreme Beer Fest Boston 2004: Has a amber color and a sweet candy smell. Taste is like a cognac/sweet malts and finishes with a strong alcohol burn. Overall a very interesting beer, but not my thing...

egajdzis also hooked me up with a sample of Utopia. Had this one near the end of our sampling session. My notes on it read, "Butter scotch schnapps...whiskey...I canít drink this...". Just too complicated of a barleywine for me. I sampled it with hopdog and I think his rating is close to mine.
