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.

Split a 12 oz bottle with a friend. Snifters. This bottle also happened to be three years old. Got it at Tiffany's in Kalamazoo. Very fine selection.

A - for all the buzz, I expected more. It wasn't even black, but the head was outrageous. Went down quickly though.

S - here we go. All I smell is alcohol and bourbon. It's not as overwhelming as I expect 18% to be.

T - very smooth for what it is. I actually didn't think it tasted much more than 11 or 12%. Lots of barley of course, but also a good deal of sugar and hops.

M - also surprisingly subdued. Everything about this beer defied my expectation, though not necessarily in a good way.

O - decent. I bought another bottle for much less money in New York. I'm excited to try it again.

Update: I recently consumed said bottle, which was fresh. I was told by many that the alcohol would play a much larger role in the fresh bottle, which it did, but I was surprised at how suppressed the other flavors were due to the aging (including the barley, chocolate, and bourbon). Although it was a chore to get through, it was a totally different experience drinking it fresh.
