Style | ABV
American Double / Imperial Stout |  18.00% ABV

Availability: Rotating

Notes/Commercial Description:
Brewed with a ridiculous amount of barley, World Wide Stout is dark, rich, roasty and complex. This Ageable Ale clocks in at 15-20% ABV and has a depth more in line with a fine port than with a can of cheap, mass-marketed beer.

70 IBU

look: 4.25 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.75 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.5

Bottled 2011-Poured into snifter

A-Jet black with toffee 1/2" head that quickly subsides. thick lacing that quickly runs down the side of the glass

S-Chocolate, roasted malts, anise, caramel, burnt coffee, bourbon The roasted chocolate and anise seem to be the dominant aromas.

T-bold flavors that explode upon the first sip. Warm alcohol burn that you get with a bourbon. The anise stands out with some roasty dark chocolates and coffee. Chocolate/coffee flavors linger during the finish. Some woody notes

M-Full bodied with some alcohol burn slightly more carbonation than you would expect with a stout of the magnitude...as the beer warms the carb and alcohol mellow slightly

O-great tasting brew that drinks like an Imp Stout with far less alcohol. Good flavor profile and the tastes blend well
