BEER INFO

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

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 16.00%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Rare and often rumored about in the darkest corners of the beer community, World Wide Stout is dark, rich, roasty and complex, and lingers somewhere beyond the limits of the average beer.

Brewed with a ridiculous amount of barley, we've now taken this Dogfish Head classic and aged it on oak with real vanilla beans! With a little tender love and care we foster this beer from smooth, sweet wort into the big, bad blackend stout it always longed to be. Its bold, port-like complexity goes great with (or as) dessert.

With its high ABV, this is an excellent candidtate for cellaring, so grab a few bottles to enjoy now and lay the others down for a few years.

12oz bottle. Poured out an opaque, jet-black color with a small, khaki-colored head of foam. It smelled of vanilla, oak, bourbon and chocolate. Nice vanilla flavor with a strong bourbon flavors.

Pours an effervescent mahogany with a sliver of brown head. Viscious, Near zero head retention & lacing

S: Red grapes, lots of oaky booze

T: Vanilla, oaky dryness, a little boozeyness, some red grape as well. Red grapes, plenty of vanilla & dryness as this warms. Finishes with oaky/boozey dryness, plenty of vanilla

MF: Medium body, light carboantion

I thought I would like this more, but stiil, a solid take on the style. At $ 9.99 for 12 ozs, this is a one & done
