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.

Wow. Tastes like burning. And maple syrup. Aroma is maple syrup, some smoke, sugar and alcohols. Awesomely viscous and stinging mouthfeel. This beer is turning out to be a bit of a challenge. I like it. Taste is cloying, hot port, some tobacco, and more heat. It makes me want waffles.

2015 vintage
At first it was mead aroma, bourbon and wood, after a while alcohol shows up and dominates.
Taste is mid dry, woody with raisins, honey. A bit of vanilla, some caramel.
Mouthfeel is medium, not very oily but getting there. Would love more body though. A lot of alcohol in taste
Very warming, you can feel the alcohol type of warming in the throat a long while after a sip. Finish is round and mellow, vanilla and wood
This should not be rated as beer anymore. As much as it is hyped, paired with the price it didnt meet all the expectations...

Small sample @ Stockholm Beer Festival
Very, very rich aroma. You (almost) dont have to drink it. Sit down in your favourite sofa and just smell it for an hour or two. Quite close to a good port. Sweet and complex taste with fruits (all of them) all over. I wish I could afford a bottle...

Sampled at FoBAB. Not really my glass of beer. I get it, its extreme, its a neat concept, but to me at 27%+ its booze not beer.

UPDATED: OCT 20, 2010 bottle courtesy of myself, to my head. crisp mahogony pour, nice rich dark sienna body with excellent legs. nice dense aroma, tons of sweet malts, dried/candied figs, dates cherries and a hint of pineapple. huge vanilla and oak, and then the subtle leather, smoke and charred notes pop out. but is syrupy, but not too much, excellent. rich and velvety, coating the moth and slowly releasing the bouquet of tastes as it slowly minishes. the finish has some cloves, cinnamon and nutmeg. thick smokey sea salt caramel and new used leather permeates your senses. excellent stuff, more than worth the price to me. *** re-rate: after having had many different vintages of this all the way through, i can say some a better than others. some are honestly a 5, some are a 4.5. given that, i will leave my original rating from the 2009 vintage at 4.8.

Flaska p rebro l & Whisky Festival. Tjusig mahogny i frgen och frsts inget skum. Tls att sticka nsan i en bra stund. Ntiga inslag, madeira, vermogna pplen, kola, knck, vanilj, mycket fatkaraktr, inlagda krsbr, torkade plommon. Massiv kropp, som olja i munnen. Fga frvnande r det en bra kick frn alkoholen. Den vrmer i brjan men gr sedan ver i en massiv kick, och dr kommer alla smakerna. Grymt komplex med mycket fatkaraktr, vanilj, madeira, torkade plommon, russin, dadlar, ekfat, bourbon. Ligger kvar lnge i smaken och fortstter att skifta ven i eftersmaken. Avslutningen tar fram rejlt med torkade plommon, sdr hrligt vermogna och tungt sta. Hftig l.

[Bottle] # 09231. Pours a clearish copper with no head. Aroma is major maple syrup, loads of alcohol not surprisingly, pine, raisins, vanilla, caramel, and plum. I spent at least 15 minutes alone picking through the aroma. Flavor takes a while to get to through the alcohol. Incredibly rich and silky. Maple and plum come through the strongest aside from the alcohol, leaving a long burn. The richest, most decadent beer I’ve ever had. Worth the experience.
