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.

I have tried this beer in the bottle and on tap. Both experiences were exceptional. I tried on tap over the summer on a business trip to Boulder at the great place called "West End Grill" on Pearl St. Even with all of the excellent local beers it stood out as an excellent beer. Great body and very complex flavor, especially for such a strong beer (18%).

I recently found it in NY and bought a bottle for $12 for 12 OSS, steep but totally worth it. I think I likes the bottle better but both were over the top.

Poured out of a 12 oz bottle into my tulip.

A - Poured out a dark brown/black with no light in sight. Produced half a finger of brown head that dissipated quickly but left a nice lacing on the glass.

S – Nice alcohol aroma hits first followed by coffee, toffee and big roasted malts. Dark fruits running in there as well.

T – Dark chocolate and big roasted malts hit first. Coffee flavor follows through but not overwhelming. Touch of sweetness in the mix but it is not cloying. Dark fruit and raisins run along the palate. Has some nice caramel and vanilla notes.

M – Medium to full bodied with little to no carbonation. Nice and chewy. Coats the palate well. Light alcohol warming at the finish.

O – Its good, its damn good. Warmed up nicely. Flavorful. Tasty. It’s a winner.

12 oz bottle Poured down the side of a CBS snifter a small head forms. Dark and solid, no light escapes the grasp of this beast. No lacing appears when sipped or swirled.

There's a lot of dried fruit on the nose, sweet raisins and dates an molasses. A little alcohol sneaks in there.

The taste is really sweet (like a port) up front and it lingers throughout.chocolate covered raisins , irish coffee , red wine ( merlot ? ) molasses, dates come through and change sip to sip. Prune juice? The alcohol makes an appearance at the back of the tongue ( like the alcohol taste in a good jenever ) and lingers along dried fruit and bitter chocolate

It's a super smooth, thick, and coats my mouth and teeth with a taste that goes on and on.

This is my first WWS, so I can't compare it to fresher. It is a delicious veer and The 18% does not play a huge role, but it's a sweet and good beer !
