In addition to Buffalo Trace and a variety of casks, we aged the 2017 recipe in Scandinavian Aquavit barrels, a vodka or gin like spirit with distinct flavors from spices and herbs. For the first time we finished with Moscat barrels, a wine known for its slightly smoky character. We blended with beer from 24-year-old Triple Bock and 17-year-old Millenium. 2017 Utopias has falvors like dark fruit, it's a little sweet, slightly smoky, and malty smooth.
Named after the United States founding farther, Samuel Adams brewing company was formed in Boston, Massachusetts in 1984. Originally, they started by brewing lager but also quickly established themselves as a leading figure in the world of craft beers.
Utopias was first released in 2002 and became a yearly fixture in the company’s portfolio. At the time of its release it was marketed as the strongest commercial beer in the world.
Fewer than 15,000 bottles of Utopuas are released each year and famously sell-out immediately. To make them even more difficult to find, the beer is not available in 15 out of the 50 US States due to its extremely high alcohol content.
