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

Special thanks to mikecharley for hooking me up!

This is black. No light penetration, at all. Pours like motor oil. Thick and viscous. Beautiful.
Two-finger head of chocolate colored foam that leaves a thin film. Excellent, even a bit oily, lacing.

Pure, unadulterated, friggin' malt bomb. Huge malty notes with caramel, toffee, coffee and dark chocolate shining through. Underneath, there are loads of very ripe dark fruits. Brown sugar and maple syrup. Big roasted notes. Booziness.

What happened to that 18%ABV? Where is it?
Wow, this is much smoother than expected.
Freakin' huge sweet roasted malts attack your pallette, in the most beautiful way. Dark chocolate and vanilla mixed with caramelized brown sugar. Red and black cherries. Plums and figs. Hints of bananas and pineapple. Hints of roasted nuts.
Remeniscent of a very fine Port wine. Only better.

Mouthfeel is big and oily, like I like it to be. Sadly, it lacks the creaminess that I think belongs here. Only a very slight amount of carbonation is here and I think that detracts from the overall experience.

Although this is 18%ABV, it's so well hidden that I would love to drink these, one right after another. I totally think that you could, too. This is a tasty flippin' brew. The only thing to worry about is standing up after three or four or twelve of these.
