BEER INFO

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

Style: American Double / 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

A: poured from a 12 oz bottle into a pint glass, nearly black with a thick tan head that lingers leaving good lacing, clear

S: tons of malt, dark fruits, cherry, fig, molasses, wood, tobacco, leather

T: big malt up front, very sweet flavors of dark fruits, cherry, slight coffee, vanilla, wood, finish bitter with a nice floral hop flavor

M: thick and rich, alcohol is very well hidden

O: worth trying for the complexity of flavors even at the price

I've had a few misses with DFH, but WWS is superb...

Out of the bottle it's mostly like any other dark stout, black almost in color, tannish foam, a bit thin and not much lacing. But when you put your nose up to it that's when the great experience begins. A delicately balanced smell of booze, a hint of cinnamon (I tell ya), and some caramel thrown in for good measure. The mouthfeel keeps you wanting to come back, but resist those siren temptations 'cause this puppy is at 15%-18% ABV. I loved the taste, I simply love boozy flavored beers and this one comes at you with nothing to hold back. Certainly an exceptional beer if not outstanding.
