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

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

Vintage 2009. Pours a dark chestnut black. Aroma is sweet dark fruit essence, black cherries, some roasted caramel malt, raisin and plum notes. Taste is sweet dark fruit, black cherries, molasses, chocolate dark roasted caramel malt, sweet alcohol, raisin and dried plums. Palate is a full creamy body, slight sticky mouthfeel and smooth going down. The finish is same as taste. dark roasted caramel malt, with a very pleasant sweet alcohol dark fruity black berry, raisin and plum flavor, molasses, slightly dry and mild bitter ending. Considering the high alcohol content it smooth. Overall delicious. flavorful, wonderful after dinner drink for a cold evening.
