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.

hero27 (19) - Iowa, USA - AUG 14, 2006
Limited 2005 Edition. Bottle #00732. 24oz. Beautiful bronze/copper brew kettle bottle. Easily the most stunning bottle Ive ever seen..downright impressive just to look at. Sam Adams signature engraved on the front, and on the back, copper sliding doors that reveal a picture of Samuel Adams. Bottom of the bottle is individually numbered in gold lettering. Strongest beer in the world? Sure, its somewhat of a gimmick, but I still had to try it. Saw it at Johns Grocery in Iowa City and took the only two bottles they had. Served right around 60 degrees..let it warm to room temp as we drank it. Pours a clear bronze/amber color..looks very much like cognac or whiskey. No head, lace, or carbonation, but it holds to the glass like syrup..very sticky consistency. Aroma is surprisingly alcoholic..smells stronger than many 40-50% liquors Ive had...wow. Sweet smells of brown sugar and almost has a tequila-like quality to it. Interesting.. Tastes are incredible..very sweet & rich..dark fruits, brown sugar, smoky malts, oak, vanilla, molasses, cinnamon, raisins, maple syrup....with a slight burning alcohol finish. Hop character is subdued by the huge malty tastes and alcohol bite. Very warming and has a wonderful complexity to it. Overall, Id say the 24 ounces probably isnt "worth" the $100+ price tag, but then again, what could be worth that? Whats gold going for an ounce these days? Other great high-alcohol beers such as DFH World Wide Stout and DFH 120 Minute IPA are less than $10 per 12oz bottle, and are around 20%. You cant get much more unique, though..and it was nice to get the chance to try it. Goes down remarkably smooth and is surprisingly drinkable as well..the tastes linger on the tongue, and as soon as they fade, you find yourself yearning for another sip. If you have money burning a hole in your pocket and can find this great brew, Id say go for it. You can always split the cost with a few friends like I did. That way you wont feel so guilty when youre staring at the gorgeous empty bottle.

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.

Backlog, ocena przepisana z untappd, w ramach uzupełniania profilu na ratebeer. Słodziutkie, likierowe, z fantastyczną, niezwykle bogatą, nalewkową alkoholowością. Pite 3 razy, na pewno wrcę jak tylko trafi się okazja.

_angst_ (4561) - Gteborg, SWEDEN - OCT 15, 2016
Bottle bought through Systembolaget. Pours dark reddish brown with no head leaving some nice looking legs on the glass with a swirl. Smell is very sherry like with tons of raisins, prunes, leather and fresh rather yeasty oxidation (oxymoron time!) but also clear barley wine character with caramel, toffee, light herbal hops and of course a rather hefty alcohol burn. Taste is sweet, tiny bitter, malty, fruity and boozy. Mouthfeel is round, viscous, oily, flat, burning boozy and near full bodied. Finish is sweet and tiny bitter with caramel, toffee, raisins, prunes, minerals, yeast, leather, minerals and heavy sherry alcohol. I must confess I had no real expectations for this bad boy. But drinking this as an albeit extremely strong sherry this is quite delicious. I like!

Listigovers (944) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 29, 2016
Pours uncarbonated and brown. Tastes a bit like a herbal bitter, not very much like beer, very chewy palate, a bit of dark chocolate, lots of caramel. There is surprisingly little heat for such a strong beer. A bit of spice as well, very unique. I enjoyed it a lot, thanks Folly! Finally tried it
