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.

Hazy dark amber color. The aroma is immensely rich, with malt, caramel, vanilla, light phenol, alcohol, light fruit. Very thick and viscous, sweet malt flavor, caramel, wood, vanilla, strong alcohol punch, raisins, figs; the mouthfeel then gets oily; late final oxidisation and astringency.
A very interesting beer.

Beautiful dark copper color. Still.
Phenolic malty aroma, with delicate notes of fruity Porto wine, alcohol, sweet oak.
Burning alcohol flaming on the tongue, leaving behind traces of toffee (strong), sugars, malt, caramel; salty and thick. Balanced flavors but unbalanced alcohol perception, killing.
Because of the alcohol, the final is too short, with some caramel and sweetness.
An experience, for sure, but yet not the state of the art.

Flat, amber color. Smells like cognac; some nuts and malt; mono-dimensional; but the nuttyness comes out later, and this is an improvement. Sweet alcoholic cognac with some malt and sweetness. Well, its a strange but very good beer! Thanks Jeppe for sharing this sample!

Koelschtrinker (19785) - Kln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 9, 2011
Getestet beim LCRBM Dieses Bier ist extrem schwer zu bewerten, es eindeutig zu alkoholreich. Dazu kommt eine Schrfe, die den Alkohgol noch hervorhebt. Die zwangslufig auftretende Wrze ist aber viel zu schwach, um etwas anrichten zu knnen. Im Nachgeschmack holt diese auf und passt sich der Alkoholstrke an. Die Se scheint whrend des gesamten Tirnkvorgangs ins unendliche zu gehen. Interessant, aber kaum zu trinken! Test vom 10.9.2007, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 10,10,1,4,-,8 - 6,78

Poured from a bottle at Mikkeller Viktoriagade, cost about 10, 02/03/14. Murky dark mahogony brown with no head. Nose is big booze, rich fruit, herbal tones, light smoke, dark fruit rinds, tobacco, leafy, earthy. Taste comprises rich fruit cake, sherry tones, sweet demerera sugar, booze, dark fruit peel, dates, leather. Full full bodiment, fine carbonation, warming alcohol in the close. Solid stuff for the ABV which doesnt come across anything like 27%!

rlgk (18844) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 3, 2004
I struggled a little with this at first. Is this really a beer? Anyway ,it is good... Malty whisky-aroma with some cognac. Flavor is vinous, salty licorice and fruity from apricot and apples. The body is incredible.

harrisoni (18232) - 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.

TBone (17316) - Pori, FINLAND - OCT 2, 2006
Bottled, vintage 2003. Clear amber brown, no head. Nose is exactly like in Madeira-wine: fruity, alcoholic. Taste too: prunes, grapefruit, toffee, sugars. Earth-shaking, just damned expensive.

Oakes (17172) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - APR 11, 2002
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2012 fresh 2011: Bright fiery-amber brown and flat. The aroma is mapley and woody. Sweet with alcohol tingle, and the maple emerges later to make a contribution to the finish.

oxidized 2011: Muddy amber and flat. Mapley aroma with alcohol. Rich caramels. Soft and sticky. Rich malts and dates and maple with lots of alcohol tingling the tongue. Finishes sweet and with hints of wood and alcohol. 7-3-7-3-15

old 2002 rating: Fiery amber, still; Firm, alcoholic aroma w/ vanilla, bourbon, malt, nuts. Notably phenolic palate is sweet, very mapley, with a bracing slap of alcohol. Very smooth, oily palate; sweet, liqeurish finish. Big time dessert beer - tastes like it was brewed with maple sap instead of water.
