New Years Eve 2013. Finally opened my 2011 Utopias. What a treat! Ceramic "bottle" sample poured to a brandy snifter.

A - Brilliantly clear deep copper color. Persistent legs lace the side of the glass. No head, but none expected.

S - Where to begin? Toffee, vanilla, oak, leather, plum, fig; the list goes on. One of the most complex aromas of any "beer" I've had. Only negative is a bit of hot alcohol.

T - Even better than the aroma. Sweet nondescript malt, toffee, treacle, woody undertones, complex dark, dried fruit, hints of spice. Sweet alcohol, but not hot or unpleasant in any way. Sweetness seems balanced by a bitterness, but doesn't seem like hops. Alcohol also helps balance the sweetness.

M - Full body but not at all cloying. Alcohol played a major role in drying out and balancing the finish. No carbonation. Just like a fine brandy.

O - Outstanding! Sorry I waited so long to open this one (or maybe not!).
