12-07-12 - Utopia 10th Anniversary Edition 2012 - 4.03, American Strong Ale, 29.00%
This is the strongest Utopia to date, celebrating ten years of Sam Adams Utopia. The brand has been released in small batches in the years 2002, 2003, 2005, 2009, 2011, and 2012. This is an uncarbonated high strength beer with a lot of complex flavors and aromas, characterized by caramel sweet malt and noble hops. Despite its very high ABV, it's brewed in the normal fashion, and aged in wood barrels for 19 years. This extremely long conditioning process gives the beer a vast array of bold flavors including vanilla, maple, spice, ginger, honey, coffee, fruit, molasses, and cinnamon. Yes, quite a boat load. Sam Adams even recommends that if you're patient enough, you can cellar it for longer periods of time to enhance the flavors even more. It is best served as a dessert beer in small, 2 oz servings at room temperature. Only 15,000 bottles of this 10th Anniversary Edition will be made at $160 a bottle. This batch was conditioned in Buffalo Trace Distillery casks.

1-04-10 - Utopia 2009 - 4.28, American Strong Ale, 27.00%
At the time of its release, the first Utopia in 2002 held the record for the strongest naturally-fermented beer commercially available. They have become nothing but a huge, rare, and much coveted hit among craft beer enthusiasts, and at more than $150 a bottle, the wealthy of course. The first Utopia was released with a 24% ABV, and this fifth release boasts a massive 27.00%. Today, the Utopia brand doesn't hold the distinction as the strongest naturally fermented beer on sale as that title has been taken over many times since 2002. Each release of Utopias are a momentous occasion for the brewery, which sells between 9,000-15,000 bottles for each release, making them very rare collectors items. These are very sweet beers with extremely bold and complex flavors. Caramel malt mixed with fruity notes, cinnamon, spice, vanilla and an array of other flavors smoothly cover the entire tounge in an unparalleled experience. The beers are conditioned in leftover spirit distilling casks from other companies such as Tawny Port, Buffalo Trace, and Vintage Ruby. As each cask is used for a different purpose, they all produce varied results with hints of rum, scotch, whiskey, bourbon, and others definitely present in the beer.
