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.

Cryotek (206) - Pawtucket, Rhode Island, USA - DEC 21, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 11, 2008 From a tapped kep for a xmas tasting at the brewery- Initially smelled like a wine or light cogniac. Tastes a little like a wine, maybe an oaky cherry on steroids, or even grand mariner. very sweet, thin syrup feel, but nothing they can do to hide the 27%. exreme alc finish. With all the hype, i was a little let down, but im just not use to drinking stuff this strong. Im sure a whisky or cogniac drinker would appreciate this more.

ekstedt (6679) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - DEC 16, 2007
Bought 2 cl at the Rover, Gteborg, Sweden. Deep reddish amber with no head. Port wine-like aroma with cherries and plums, wood and raisins. Medium bodied and smooth. Pleasant sweetness with a dry edge. Very nice, but what is the point with this port wine imitation of a beer? For $150 or whatever it costs I can get a really good port wine which is much better than this over-hyped product.

Snifter at Tap Werks Rating NO 500. Syrup aroma, Light nutty almond aroma as well, No hops to speak of. Taste is very sweet,sweet like maple syrup, no hops in the taste just like Frangelico or Barenjager, ugh not that great, i could put it on my waffles, but wow this one is sweet., i really expected some alcohol but its really not prevalent. Just plenty of sweetness.

What better way to finish off a monster session than with a monster of a beer. The ever resourceful Linc provided us with, amongst other gems, the 2005 edition way back earlier this year (2007) at a Sydney gathering. Unsurprisingly the aroma contains plenty of maple syrup, along with some vanilla, oak and sweet dried fruits. Exceptionally smooth drinking, belying the alcohol percentage amazingly (although still obviously a big abv beer). Looking forward to trying this again one day ;-)

GABF. Came straight to this booth when I saw it was here. Why pay $20 for a one oz taste when I can get one here? Very sweet. Very hot. Lots of malty sweetness and lots of alchol on the finish. No suprise either way. I really liked it. Would I pay for it? Not now, but cuz im cheap not cuz it wasnt good.

this guy below me is a LIAR! he enjoyed it at House of BREWS on 51st St. What a lush, he cant even remember where he enjoys his beers... Anyways, this "beer" was surprisingly good, I have to say this has way more in common with a fine port than it has to do with any form of beer, but what do I know. Thick, syrupy and tasty recommended to try but definitely not something you would enjoy every day.

Finally! Enjoyed at Hop Devil. Tastes like a very sweet port - lots of sultanas and red fruit. Deliciously thick - and expensive. 1oz shot.

masonjer (609) - Holt, Michigan, USA - NOV 30, 2007
UPDATED: DEC 3, 2007 Had a Pint of this last night. Just kidding, 1 oz pour for ten bucks. Normally I dont think thats enough to get a good taste, but this stuff packs a lot of punch. Smell is familiar, rum?, cognac?, and real maple syrup. Smells quite alcoholic as well. Taste is much less alcoholic, reminds me of some fine liquer, except a lot more complex. Maple Syrup up front, vanilla, hints of wood, bourbon, spices, dark fruits, carmelized sugar. This was really interesting. I wonder if I will get another crack at it.

awaisanen (1304) - Fond du Lac, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 25, 2007
GABF 2007. Pours a viscous cloudy roasted caramel syrup with no head. Intense nose, dripping with sugary dark fruits and warming liquore. Notes of plum, figs, vanilla, caramel, bourbon, cinnimon, mace, plums, raisins; its all there and incredibly rich and decadent. Heavy body, with a sticky texture and only a subtle suggestion of carbonation. Tastes like it smells, which is basically an explosion of dark fruit flavors across the palate. I couldnt image being able to drink more than a couple of ounces of this without suffering from pancreas failure, but the flavors are incredible. Very complex, with a pleasant earthy spice character to compliment the fruits, alcohol, and brown sugar/molasses. Total palate killer, but worth it, in my opinion. Refined alcohols in the finish, warming the palate and throat calmly.

Bottle at Lbutikken - thanks to Yespr. Cloudy deep orange - no head. Raisins, high hoppy, bread, alcoholi, brown sugar, lots of dried dark fruits, portwine-like. Powerfull and light alcoholic afterburn. Very delicious, but not as fantastic as I hoped !!
