Samuel Adams Utopias

Anyone want to split the cost of one of these bad boys? If it really is $100.00 per bottle, it would be cheap enuf if shared in the club. Especially if it isn't your "cup of tea", one person wouldn't be out that much.

Here is what their write-up says:

Sweet fire, with rich malt and wood complexity.


Truly the epitome of brewing's two thousand year evolution,
Samuel Adams Utopias offers a flavor not just unlike any other beer but unlike any other beverage in the world. Its warm, sweet flavor is richly highlighted with hints of vanilla, oak and caramel. Our 2003 batch topped out at a record breaking 25% ABV, beating the records that Samuel Adams® Triple Bock® and Samuel Adams® Millennium had set before it. And like those groundbreaking brews, Samuel Adams Utopias is not carbonated and should be served at room temperature. In one
of many examples where Samuel Adams Utopias pushed the boundaries of beer, it received the highest recommendation (96-100 points) from the prestigious Wine Enthusiast Magazine (November, 2003 edition).

Just a thought . . .


Comments:
In a related story I heard a guy on WTOP saying beer stock was good to buy now. He didn't say anything about making your own (beer, that is, not stock)
 
25% ABV is a malt cordial, not a beer... particularly if it is flat and served at room temperature.

Think I'll pass... I can't think of any beer I'd pay $100/bottle for.
