Utopias 2023 is a blend of multiple batches of our Extreme Beers that we’ve held in reserve for just this purpose. In fact, this beer is aged in some barrels that are nearly 30 years old. In addition to American bourbon barrels, we used Scotch and peated whisky barrels. The peated whisky barrels add a wisp of smoke to the flavor. Then, Ruby Port and Carcavelos casks from Portugal and Cognac barrels from France bring dark fruit notes. New to Utopias 2023 are Pineau des Charentes barrels from a rare, fortified French aperitif. And while Utopias 2023 has European roots, it’s a distinctively American innovation built on a foundation of aged Kentucky bourbon barrels. We recommend serving Utopias at room temperature in one to two-ounce portions in a Utopias snifter to release all the aromas.
