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

4/5  rDev -4.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

A - Pours super dark and even looks thick coming out of the bottle. Poured into a bourdeaux wine glass. Doesn't appear to have much of a head.

S - The first smell that hits you is the alcohol. Oh man, there is no hiding it. Then woody, coffee notes come through under the alcohol.

T - Tastes like nothing else. This is what I love about Dogfish Head, unique flavorful beers. Tastes of dark carmel sweetness with cherry-vanilla wood, anise, and coffee like flavors. There is only one minor flaw; maybe it could use some more hops to balance it out.

M - Very, very thick. Perhaps a little too thick for me. Also appears to be under-carbonated probably due to the fact that it was stored at 76F for a year upright. The alcohol also warms up the palate.

O - A very unique beer that is a must try for anybody who loves full-bodied beers. I suggest having it by itself. Dogfish Head says that it could go with dessert, but it is way too sweet and boozy. It is an dessert by itself. Enjoy!

UPDATE (05/30/12) - A half year in the fridge seems to have mellowed the alcohol a bit. Wish I had more optimal storage conditions, but Arizona does not have those. The overall flavor profile tastes more of less the same. There is more carmel and less anise. Might just be due to a changing palate though.
