Utopia: Lunch at the Yardhouse

Utopia: Lunch at the Yardhouse

Last week I dropped by the Yardhouse for lunch and discovered that they had a few bottles of Samuel Adams Utopia 2009 available.

I’ve never tried the stuff and it’s one of those things you just have to experience. It’s Sam Adams Utopia, for crying out loud. A single bottle is going for $249 on eBay.

They get $20 for 2 oz, but I could say I’m saving $229. A few years back you were lucky if you had the opportunity to pay $300 for a bottle. It’s 27% ABV, so that’s about a drink and a half.

I couldn’t resist.

It smells like liquor on the nose, maybe a really peaty scotch. It’s so syrupy in the mouth it feels sticky. It burns like liquor. I’m not sure there is anything beer like in here. It tastes like a peaty cognac. Now that I have tasted it it smells like a holiday rum cake made especially for a booze party, sweet and potent. There are hops here, my palate is just too confused to find them.

This is more bad liquor than good beer, but then again its about 4 years too early to drink this year’s Utopia. I will reserve judgment for another time. Perhaps one day someone will offer me cellar aged Utopia with my work lunch….
