Dogfish Head World Wide Stout
Dogfish Head World Wide Stout, the infamously decadent imperial stout from Dogfish Head and weighing in at 18% abv and a purported 370 calories per bottle, poured pitch black in the glass with a small, yellow-brown head. The nose carried chocolate, coffee, dried fruit, and smoke over a moderate alcohol heat.
Dogfish Head World Wide Stout starts sweet and chewy, with burnt coffee beans, dry chocolate, and dark sugar paving the way for a slow but sure wave of alcohol heat. Stewed cherries and prunes came through and the stout thickened and sweetened on the fade.
Dogfish Head World Wide Stout is not for the weak of heart, but it is a worthy find for those not afraid of big beers!
