BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Delaware, United States

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.

A very good stout but nothing more - I bit too strong in ABV and therefore in top the flavors are bit off for me.

2016 bottle poured into a tulip glass. A dark opaque brown, viscous on the pour that produced a fleeting thin tan head. Aroma had faint milk chocolate, vanilla, caramel, and some raisin. The taste was more stone fruit and chocolate. Heavy, thick, but smooth. Certainly warm on the finish, but it has settled down in 2+ years. Not overly sweet with a nice bitterness in the background.

2017 - my initial reaction was, “booze bomb,” and my wife’s was, “that’s an all-night sipper.” Certainly the high ABV is the most distinctive thing about this brew. It’s dark with a light brown minimal head with little retention and moderate carbonation. Notes of vanilla, almond, roasted marshmallow, and cognac. Booze hits you immediately, but the vanilla and prune flavors round it out. Bit of an oily feel. I love this beer, but it hardly seems like beer. Definitely drink or share one.

2016 vintage - Notes of big black grapes, umami savory almost salty roasted barley, dark caramel, coffee, rich lingering dark chocolate

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!
