A - Pours a mahogany color with no carbonation.
S - Utterly stunning - unlike any other beer. Sherry, cherry, cognac, port, extreme barrel aged notes. Just an insane bouquet of dark fruits - cherry, dates, a bit of wild dark berries. A bit of caramel malt and vanilla.
T - Just wow. This hits you so hard with the barrel aging - it is so incredibly smooth even with the high abv. Taste follows the nose but it is even more amazing. The taste lingers forever, which is amazing.
M - No carbonation, but it doesn't need any. Lingers in your mouth for an eternity (1+hour) long after you have swallowed it. It made me smile so much; I couldn't believe what my taste buds were experiencing.
O - Incredible. If this beer isn't perfect, then nothing is. If you can appreciate a barrel-aged beer, take that times infinity and you have Utopias. Kind of pricey but I can totally understand why. Save this for special occasions, and you won't be disappointed.
