Ratebeer Rated 100 Points.
Beer Advocate : "A" "Outstanding"
Utopias is made with caramel, Vienna, Moravian and Bavarian smoked malts, and four of the five varieties of noble hops: Hallertauer Mittelfrüh, Tettnanger, Spalter, and Saaz hops. The beer is aged in scotch, cognac and port barrels for the better part of a year. A limited number of bottles are released each year-in 2007, only 12,000 bottles were produced, and in 2009, only 9,000 bottles were released.
The 2011 batch of Utopias was blended using the sherry casks (from Spain and Madeira) and the port casks (from Portugal), some of which have been resting for 18 years.
And they are asking $199 per bottle...
