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.

Doghair (312) - Illinois, USA - AUG 21, 2012
UPDATED: MAR 28, 2014 2014 is different. More wine and bourbon. Less fruit. Still amazing. 2011 Edition poured into a port glass. Nice copper color with no visible head. Heavy appearance in the glass. The smell at first is a lot of alcohol but that passes any you get a wonderful raisin molasses combination. Very reminiscent of a LBV port. Heavy smooth liqueur type mouth feel. Taste is difficult to describe. First thing I notice is an unusual prickly carbonation feel on the tongue. Then raisins, nuts, maybe some sherry. Finished with molasses, wine and wood. Some nice bitterness too. Nothing else like it so it?s not really comparable. Overall outstanding.

Aromas of barrels at top, bourbon, cognac, very sweet, dark fruits. Alcohol is noble but way too heavy. Its not easy to drink. I wouldnt say that it is a beer (no head, no carbonation). More like curiosty than something to recommend

Samuel Adams Utopias 10th Anniversary (2012) Genialne piwo, zapach powala na deski, toffi takie ciągnące sie, beczki, kokos wszystko. W smaku słodkie nie tak wyklejające jak Jopen ale zdecydowanie bardziej "pijalne"? Nie męczy alkohol genialnie paruje w ustach. Klasa już nie światowa a pozaziemska, "galaktyczna"?

Nieziemskie, bogate, wielowarstwowe, potężnie złożone piwo. Określenie "złożone, wielowarstwowe" powinno być stworzone dla takich piw jak to. Aromat jest obezwładniający, gigantyczny, bardzo intensywny. Najważniejszą jego zaletą jest fajt, że oodąża on za smakiem. Słodkie, likierowate z całym szeregiem składowych, ktrych nie sposb wszystkich wymienić. Skupię się zaledwie na tych najważniejszych: śliwki, rodzynki, toffi, owoce kandyzowane, figi, skrki pomarańczy, karmel, a nawet lekka czekolada. W kontrze nuty beczki dęblwej, mokrego drewna, sherry, wanilii. Alkohol rozgrzewa w szlachetny sposb, ale ani na sekundę nie wychodzi przed szereg. Kolosalna oleitsa, gęsta jak kisiel faktura, przy ktrej nie sposb nazywać ten trunek jeszcze płynem. Genialne, arcymistrzowskie. Nie potrafiłbym odjąć mu punktw za słabą pianę, dlatego w mojej ocenie dostaje maksymalną liczbę 20-tu punktw i 5.0 na RateBeer.

DocLock (10205) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 10, 2017
Shared bottle at Samm Fest I, October 2016. Poured clear caramel colored with min head. The nose was a rich medley of rich, caramelly malt, tannins, hops. Tasted like a fine bourbon, with rich, malt, tons of heat in the flavor and nose, and more caramel and spirity flavor as it warmed. A white whale I thought Id never see, and I am thankful for that. What a beer.

24 ounce bottle, 2015 Edition, bottle #17398, 28% ABV. Ive opened the bottle and shared some with friends a couple months ago, but figured Id give it a proper review this time. Served in a small tasting snifter (about an ounce or 2 pour), the beer pours a clear amber color with no head or lacing. Its similar to drinking whiskey, when I swirl it around in the glass you can see the "legs" sticking to the side of it. Aroma is rich, malty and boozy, the brew smells like vanilla, maple, molasses, dark fruit, wood, sweet spices and earthiness. Taste is sweet and actually not as boozy as I expected. Theres caramel, maple, molasses, wood, dark fruit, sweet spices, vanilla, candied oranges, Sherry, and earthy/tobacco flavors. Theres also a lingering sweet boozy finish. Mouthfeel/body is medium/full, its a bit syrupy and slick with pretty much no carbonation. I really like this brew, its certainly a sipper. Utopias is similar to drinking a bourbon or Scotch, its pretty hard to compare this even to most craft beer. Very unique and tasty brew, definitely worth trying if you get a chance to!

Estebanik (890) - Lublin, POLAND - DEC 11, 2016
Ciężko ocenić piwo, pijąc tylko 20 ml, ale sprbujmy. Piany oczywiście brak. Aromat mocno słodki, miodowy, szlachetnie alkoholowy, karmelowy, suszone owoce. W smaku gęste, sporo miodu gryczanego. Pije się to właściwie jak mid pitny. Alkohol przyjemnie rozgrzewa, stanowi fajną kontrę dla dużej słodyczy. Bardzo mało piwne, ale robi wrażenie.

UPDATED: DEC 10, 2016 (bottle 2012 edition) Aroma:Huge vanilla,dried fruits,fudge,wine-ish note, Appearance:dark copper color,no head. Taste:sweet,flavour of vanilla, red wine,caramel and fudge, loooooooong malty finish. Palate:full body,oily texture,no carbonation. Overall:Very close to perfection the only thing which stops me from rating it higer is a fact that it no longer tastes like beer.
