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.

[What a fanstastic treat - thanks yespr!] Dark amber with no head. Aroma has strong alcohol, fruits, oak, port and cognaq notes. Flavor is sweet and strong with port, cognaq, caramel, grapes and oak notes. Full bodied with lovely curtains in the glass. Although strong it is very balanced. Wow...

Two ounce pour from a bottle purchased by my homebrewing club. Room temperature. 2007 bottling. Pours clear mahogany brown and is totally still, no head whatsoever, indicated to earlier by an absolutely silent release of the cap. Very leggy. Huge complex aroma of dried fruits, raisins, prunes, dates, figs, brown sugar and ALCOHOL. A very complex flavor as well. The alcohol is dominant, but there is an intense fruitiness underneath it if you can search for a bit with your tongue. Big alcohol burn, but this is very smooth and drinkable. At over $100 a bottle, I wont drink this often, if ever again, but if it was ever priced along with the liqueurs, this would be nice to have around now and then.

2003 bottle, purchased in 12/07 for over $200.00. Opened and consumed on 01/14/08. Wow, where to begin? Slightly cloudy golden pour with the thickest legs this side of cough syrup. Intense aroma of alcohol. No carbonation whatsoever. Mouthfeel is thick and sticky, but in a good way. Flavor is redolent of the sherry and port barrels used to age the brew. Sweet with an alcohol burn. The flavor reminded at least one person tasting with me of Harveys Bristol Cream. Unlike any beer I have ever had. Really something else. Fifty proof beer...

This is a most incredible beer and hard to believe that it is beer at that. Strong alcohol/cognac aroma with superb color and strong legs lead to no head. Ill throw it out there and state I spent $160 on this bottle plus tax and was purchased to enjoy with friends on New Years. Not a big hit with everyone so that means more for me. Chewy is accurate for the mouthfeel and yet silky going down that leads to a little fire. Very enjoyable.

HopheadHans (804) - Bay Area, California, USA - JAN 10, 2008
Bottle. Poured into the proper tasting glass ( a gimmick). So this is the 2007 version. This is not a beer but rather more of a tawny port or even more like a sherry or Madeira. Has a copper color, absolutely no head and strong alcohol notes. Some molasses like flavors and fairly chewy. Hard to describe, but strangely satisfying.

For me this 2.5-+ of beer was truly an experience. The aroma is just hard to discribe. It comes out of the glass and gets you. I think it would burn your eyes if you draped a towel over your head like people do when they have a cold. I reminded me so much of a shot of whiskey only different. The flavor was warm as would be expected. It was again like drinking a good smooth sherry. Mouthfeel was just outstanding I think the high abv gave it the hint of thiness that I detected. Overall what can I say would I split another bottle 8 ways again? yep.

aroma? one word; port. tawny port, aged about 10 or 20 yrs. this deserves a "FUCKIN A!!!!" aside from the burn, its all about nutty grape and caramel aromas, sweeter chocolate, viscous toffee, and aged oak. though its an atypical beer, its an excellent experience. the flavor yeilds a viscous toffee-almond-white grape flavor accented by notes of candy, caramel, and creme brulee, and homemade southern molasses - only the kind your country grandma can make. once again - atypical, but almost worth it.

Had a "small" sample of this on the second night of The Bricks Winter Tasting. It was as if you brewed whisky with a nice covering of brown sugar. No head, and pours with a lacing not unlike cough syrup . Eminently enjoyable though, but I doubt I could even down 4 oz of the thing with friends. Its good... but nothing Id have to give it as a beer... close to an extreme barleywine (as it style dictates). I think with a little less sweetness itd be perfect though.

eboats (1082) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JAN 2, 2008
Pours bronze with no head. Aroma is caramel, bourbon, creme brulee, vanilla, and cherry. Flavor is sweet caramelized sugar, toffee, almonds, coconut, and cherry. This is amazing and tastes like liquid candy. There is absolutely 0 alcohol burn in this beauty. This has a perfect balance of flavors with a silky mouth feel.

Snifter. Light amber body, nose of oak, sherry and maple syrup, no head. Luscious mouthfeel. Nutty flavor with sherry, oak, maple, fruits. This is what the Triple Bock dreamed of being, or maybe what I dreamed the Triple Bock should be.
