2012 Vintage - Dogfish Head World Wide Stout debuted in 1999; it's a pretty strong, high alcohol beer. It has an ABV of 15-20%, and is classified as an American Double/Imperial Stout. The World Wide Stout pours out as near black-red amber, and its aroma has notes of dark fruit, strong coffee, with undertones of molasses and cocoa. The final taste of a long sip is a chocolate/alcohol sort of burn, and there's a bit of carbonation to the Dogfish Head World Wide Stout, which adds to the general headiness of this strong dark, drink. You could say it's more akin to a glass of port than most mass-market light beers. It carries 70 IBUs (international bitter units), and is best enjoyed in a glass snifter. After some time in your beer cellar, the heat of this stout's booze fades into the background, and the port notes and "roastiness" takes over.
