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

Poured from the bottle a jet black color with two fingers of light mocha head. Healthy amount of lacing left behind.

Deep aroma of espresso, dark roasted malts, vanilla, dark ripe fruit, and booze.

The taste opened with a big bite of dark chocolate followed by roasted malts and dark ripe fruit. Boozy? Oh yeah, it's definitely every bit of 18%.

Full bodied and smooth with a lighter carbonation.

Delicious. Glad I had the chance to try this one.

A: poured a very dark brown in color with brownish highlights and barely anyh head that pretty much left no lacing sticking to the glass.

S: lots of booze heat very noticeable upfront in the aroma with signs of dark fruits, some roastiness and a little chocolate character but a little strange vinegar aroma.

T: plenty of booze like the nose suggest with a little chocolate flavor, some dark fruit flavor, lots of malty sweetness, hints of brown sugar, subtle roastiness and a touch of oak.

M: the brew was medium in body with a low amount of carbonation which had a semi sweet, slightly roasty, dark fruity, very boozy and sticky finish.

O: to me it was just an average stout and was way too boozy for my liking. It definitely looks like it would be better with a liitle time on it.
