BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Delaware, United States
dogfish.com

Style: American Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 18.00%

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

Delicious beer whose primary flaw is too much booze in the taste. However not enough of a taste issue to keep it from being a strong 4+

Excellent! Tasting. This is one beer to drink but not drive afterwards. At a whopping 18% ABV it is a beer to be respected and shared!

dude gave me a 2009 vintage... smooth, mellow, a tad syrup-y. slight metallic flavor but not from the cap. very little aftertaste and no alcohol burn whatsoever. definitely doesn't have a 'fresh' flavor but this is fun!

Bottled 11/1/16; drank 9/22/18 @ the Yarchives.

Black appearance.

A violent pour yielded a nice tan head; decent lace.

Astringent booze heat, raspberry & dark chocolate notes in the nose.

Creamy medium thick mouthfeel.

Astringent booze heat, dark chocolate & raspberry flavors.

Almost 2 years in, and this is still unappealingly hot. Pass.

2010 bottle split with Lisa. Still insanely boozy at 8 years old.
