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.

JK (6342) - St. Louis Park, Minnesota, USA - OCT 20, 2007
tytoanderso was good to share a taste of his ’03. Powerful aroma of alcohol and maple. Flavor is very sweet, with more maple, sugar, oak, and some whiskey. Very nice palate, thick and heavy, and no carbonation. A rich liqueur for slow sipping.

4.6
BeerandBlues2 (14018) - Escondido, California, USA - OCT 19, 2007
GABF ’07. Pours hazy tawny with a spare, fizzy, off-white head, diminishing with spare lacing. Aroma is heavy malt (cookie, caramel, roasted), light hops (flowers, grass), average yeast (earth) with notes of dates, brown sugar, maple syrup, and alcohol. Full bodied, creamy, alcoholic texture, soft carbonation. Average duration, moderate sweetness, acidity, and bitterness.

4.3
jimbowood (1036) - Freeport, Georgia, USA - OCT 14, 2007
Sampled @ GABF 2007. Huge alcohol, brandy, sweet malty aromas and flavors. Molasses and brown sugar dominate w/ overpowering alcohol. Too sweet, but still very complex and good. Aging will make this excellent.

3.9
yespr (48876) - Copenhagen O, DENMARK - OCT 6, 2007
70 cL cobber coated ceramic bottle, #315. Pours hazy amber with no head. Thick roasted aroma with clear alcohol note. Fullbodied, thick alcohol feel. Flavour is intense with a clear alcohol flavour here too. Quite distinct roasted note and a lot of dried fruit flavours in an advanced mix. Complex and powerful. Really only for sipping from a large cognac glass on a late Friday evening during Autumn or Winter.

Grovlam (4257) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 4, 2007
Bottle # 315 vintage 2003. [Courtesy of yespr, quality tasting @ Papsoe] Spare light fizzy white head that mostly diminished. Hazy amber brown color. Heavy aroma of molasses, nutty, heavy alcoholic in the sniff, raisin, plum, prune, honey. Also heavy mix of other fruity notes. Extreme full bodied with a thick complex alcoholic texture and a soft carbonation. Heavy sweet flavor with light bitterness. Warming alcoholic dried fruity lingering finish. Explosive beer, very unique and rare experience. 28-09-2007

oberabcbbsok (693) - Hoboken, BELGIUM - OCT 3, 2007
Bottle at the beer tasting of the Ratebeer group at the Kulminator. A great beer, just way too much alcohol

4.3
Papsoe (25054) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - OCT 1, 2007
(Copper coated ceramic bottle) Courtesy of yespr. Bottle # 315. Pours ahazy amber with absolutely no head. Fat aroma of caramel, overripe fruit and alcohol. Very - no EXTREMELY full-bodied - this pours thick as maple syrup. Intense and very complex notes of cognac, sweet caramel and fruit. The finish is oh so hot with nothing much but alcohol. Extreme - and extremely challenging. A masterpiece. 280907

faroeviking (11331) - Chupando chellas es como ellas, FAROE ISLANDS - OCT 1, 2007
Bottle. Pours a nice clear amber colour. Sweet port aroma with a bit stinging alcohol. Lovely port, sweet, dark fruitish flavour with some alcohol. Great brew. Huge thanks to yespr for the taste of this one!

2.8
Brew4Dug (139) - Houston, Texas, USA - SEP 21, 2007
Sampled at the GABF 2006 Saturday seesion; couldn’t believe the hype for this . . .lucky the sample was free w/ admission. Obviously malty given the 25%abv. Felt like a heated shot of well-grade Hennessy cognac. I give JK credit for creativity, but I’d reach for some Dogfish Head WW Stout or 120 min in a heartbeat over this, and save about $90 in the process.

2.4
harrisoni (19534) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2007
Thanks to whoever brought this along. Bottle at LCRBM3. Not a beer. A malty cognac perhaps, but definitely not a beer. Not attractive either as it has too much hot alcohol.
