Samuel Adam's creates special Halloween beer illegal in 15 states”

Due to the drink's high level of alcohol, it's actually illegal in 15 states.

According to Forbes, Sam Adams' only brewed 77 wooden casks of Utopias, which the outlet describes as having "distinct vanilla notes and subtle nutty and elegant dark fruit aromas".

Samuel Adams' 2019 Halloween brew is illegal in 15 states because of it's frighteningly high alcohol content. While an average beer's alcohol by volume, or ABV, falls below 10 percent, the new release is the highest naturally fermented beer at 28 percent, according to Forbes.

But for the 35 states that can enjoy Samuel Adams' latest beer, it tastes like "a deep rich malty smoothness reminiscent of a vintage port, cognac, or fine sherry", according to Samuel Adams.

The first bottles of Utopias will be shared with Samuel Adams coworkers, with each numbered with the digits that correspond to their hiring date. "Involving new members of our team from Dogfish Head in the bottling process this year signified collaboration, progress and inspired future innovations that we can't wait to share", Founder and Brewer Jim Koch said.

Samuel Adams is bringing its Utopias beer back just in time for Halloween, but not everyone will be able to find the brew.
