After visiting a bottle shop in Amesbury MA and wishing I could afford the last bottle of Utopias they had on the shelf, I was pumped to see this on the list at the Ale House down the street. Paid $18 for a two ounce pour, which seems fair, judging by some other reviews.
A: Amber, thick, with legs like a glass of Cabernet Sauvignon. Golden on the edges, dark wood in the center: viscous yet refined looking.
S: Obviously tons of maple, citrus, walnut, pecan, amazing!
T: Maple, butter, milk chocolate, and oranges. Finish keeps going and going, a second burst of maple and walnut hits a few second after the beer leaves the mouth. Pleasant warming sensations abound. Not so hot as one might think!
M: Thick and oily. Weird for a beer, but as a cordial or whatever, very nice. Zero carbonation.
D: 27% abv, what do I say? Goes down easy for what it is. I'm just giving it an "average" (3.0) because there really is no precedent for a "beer" like this. As it is, it is very tasty and I am grateful to have tried it.
