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

4.25/5  rDev +1.4%
look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Bottle marked 10/29/05 poured into an over-sized Bordeaux Spiegelau glass

It's black and relatively flat but at such a high ABV I wasn't expecting much.

The nose is lots of soy at first and then a ton of figs, dates and prunes coming through. There is a hint of smoke and chocolate but you really have to look for it.

The taste is more of the same a bit more soy than the nose and fairly sweet. This is has more in common mouthfeel-wise with port than most beers.

Very smooth the only issue that makes me give this a less than perfect score for drinkability is the ABV. This was a 20+% bottling and it shows not in the palate or nose but in the results. I'm ruined for anything else tonight.
