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

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.

This is a very nice super imperial stout that is quite dry for the high abv and is just wonderful in its booziness. I enjoyed it with dark chocolate. Its great that it has no sediment and you can enjoy it to the very last sip.

L: Pitch black with a small brown head. Decent staying power for its abv. A thin ring with some film lingers. Some spots of lacing are left.

S: Brown sugar, toffee, dark chocolate, burnt toast, coffee, fudge, boozy warmth, raisin, date, prune, cocoa powder.

T: A hit of booze straight up front. Toasted coconut, vanilla, and red wine-like notes. Then comes the rich roasted stout base--dark chocolate, cocoa powder, chocolate syrup, and burnt toast. Some raisin, plum, blackberry, and fig. More vanilla. Fairly sweet overall but with a nicely balancing roasted coffee/toast bitterness. Dangerously drinkable for its abv. Feels warm going down, though.

F: Rich and creamy, though not thick and chewy. Moderately carbonated. Deceptively slippery and drinkable. A fine sipper.

O: An immense and delicious imperial stout that drinks way below its abv. A damn fine beer.
