Brewed by:
Dogfish Head Craft Brewery
Delaware, United States

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

2010 bottle that's been in the cellar since I bought it fresh at Bottleworks.

Appearance. Pours a dark brown, nearly black in the glass with a quarter finger of khaki-brown foam that sticks around for a minute or two before becoming a collar.

Smell. Boozy port and wood, some dark malt and cherry, maybe a little dark rum.

Taste. Big molasses, a bit of chocolate syrup, rum and a touch of raisins and dark fruits. Boozy for sure.

Mouthfeel. Viscous but surprisingly not all that sticky. Low+ carbonation.

Overall. Glad to have tried but wouldn't buy again.

A - Oil Slick black with a khaki brown head. After each drink a curtain of oily black brew clings to the glass.

S - malts, fruity, smokey, caramel. You can smell the alcohol that is present, and warms your nostrils.

T - Nice blend of malts, caramel, chocolate, coffee. Warms your soul as it coats your stomach. Highly drinkable considering the 17-23% alcohol.

O - Glad I was able to get my hands on one of these. IF it wasn't so expensive I'd like to lay down a few of these for aging purposes.

Notes - purchased from Copper Vine
