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

Poured from 12 oz, bottle into tulip glass. Pours pitch black with a thin tan head that disappears rather quickly due to the alcohol content I suppose. Each small sip leaves an oily film in the glass. This is the booziest stout I've ever had. It is quite delicious in small sips, as with a fine port wine. I would like this maybe once per year, no more no less.

Pours black with a thin tan ring in the glass. You catch the coffee, chocolate and fruit in the first taste, but that quickly gives way to the heat of an 18% ABV masterpiece. Not for lite beer drinkers or wussies.

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
