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.

DCLawyer (2787) - Falls Church, Virginia, USA - DEC 21, 2015
2015 copper bottle, 28% ABV. 2oz pour into small snifter at RFD in DC. Big production like we ordered a sacrificial virgin or something. Chestnut brown with no head. Aroma is powerful booze with caramel, toffee, and hint of cardboard. Taste is sweet caramel, vanilla, oak, figs, booze. Powerful stuff. Bit cloying. Worth trying, but 2oz was enough.

Pretty nice stuff. I had the opportunity to participate in a group buy for a Christmas party. Nice! Would never have pulled the trigger on my own. Big nose of plums, caramel and vanilla. Taste is similar with lots of booze and wood. Clear brown with orange highlights, quite flat. We laughed that there was a bottle cap over this after taking the outer wrapping off, were feeling had at that point but it was great to try this.

Gubihumle (584) - Nrre Aaby, DENMARK - DEC 11, 2015
Kbte en flaske sammen med et par venner. Jeg har virkelig vanskeligheder ved at vurdere denne skaldte l. Den har ingen skumkrone og minder i smagen mere om en blanding af en cognac og en portvin end om en l. Smagen er bld, rund og sdlig med en mere bitter alkoholagtig eftersmag. Den smager fantastisk. Men er det en l?

UXO (1692) - CANADA - NOV 29, 2015
Appearance: clear medium amber with no head or lacing. (4/5) Aroma: boozy dark fruit, raisins, maple, earthy. (9/10) Taste: moderately strong sweet, mild bitter. (9/10) Palate: medium-full syrupy body, flat carbonation, boozy finish. (4/5) Looks, smells, and tastes like a liqueur - a sherry or a port, for example - and not at all like any other beer. The aromas promise a boozy sweet blast, but the flavour is actually surprisingly smooth, with much less sweetness than expected. Sure, its hot - with a nearly 30% ABV, thats fairly unavoidable - but not aggressively so. A unique brew thats definitely worth sampling. (17/20)

tmongoose (2346) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - NOV 22, 2015
bottle to baby snifter. very unexpected treat that was shared with many. the pour was medium clear brown with no head. the aroma was maple syrup and booze underlying that which is tough was some dark fruit mix of raisin and fig maybe plum. the couple of sips was pure bliss of maple syrup and booze full flavored from tip of tongue to belly. truly an experience and thanks for the share whoever bought this one.

Crystal clear brown with a yellow halo. Aroma is raisins, dark fruit and alchohol. Taste is a raisin liquor. Sweet start. Bitter on back of tongue, and light alcohol burn. Very good. Could not see drinking more than one.

mariuspoenari (1999) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - NOV 10, 2015
A dark amber / golden brown liquid, thick, with no carbonation and no head. It looks a lot like a darker brandy, with the alcohol sticking to the sides of the glass when you move it around. The smell is incredibly rich, something between a bourbon, a cherry and a brandy (as far away from beer as I have ever smelled), blended with caramel, vanilla, raisins and, of course, alcohol, especially right after the pour. As was expected, the taste is quite complex. Rich caramel sweetness up front, together with vanilla, toffee, maple syrup, notes of bourbon, a bit of wood and much, much more. Figs and other dried fruit right after that - raisins and dried plums - as well as dark cherries. A very nutty aftertaste, with different flavours unfolding after every sip. The body is viscous and thick, and the alcohol is at 29%, yet this is incredibly pleasant to drink, much more than any spirit that I have tried.
