Samuel Adams Utopias Barrel-Aged Beer
This year's limited-edition Samuel Adams Utopias extreme barrel-aged beer – only the ninth batch brewed since the first release in 2002 - was brewed in small batches using traditional methods, blended with previous vintages going as far back as 1992, then finished in the barrel room at the Samuel Adams Boston Brewery.
Billed as a rich, uncarbonated extreme beer known for its extraordinary flavor profile, Utopias has aromas of wood, toffee, cocoa, raisin and maple, which hint at its distinctive flavors, which range from molasses, earthy wood, dates, and light smoke to nuts and toffee.
With a 28 percent ABV, Utopias is best enjoyed as a 2-ounce pour in a snifter glass at room temperature. The new offering can be found at select specialty beer and liquor stores.
