3.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Huh, this beer was a little disappointing for me. It has no aroma but is very silly and smooth. It pots a nice thick raisin brown color. The flavor is sweet and thick. Certainly a raisin flavor l. The carbonation is very fine and hardly noticeable. Overall I love the flavor, texture, , color, and alcohol. The lack of aroma and the complexity are what disappointed me. No doubt it's a good beer and well worth the price!

Bottle. Poured brown, murky, small tan head. Aroma of dark fruit, caramel, malts and maybe some brown sugar. Taste is certainly boozy but not overwhelming; consistent with aroma,lots of fruit and brown sugar, very complex. A true sipper but highly enjoyable.

I am a dogfish head conissuer. I love this. It's easy drinking without being alcohol forward or revolting. The raisins bring balance to the force. I'm surprised at the abv because I don't feel it.

"i think this one was around 18% but i’m not sure of that or the vintage. when i think of wordwide stout, i think of the raisiny sweetness, but no more. this beer redefines that term in the flavor and aroma. holy cow! surprisingly one dimensional in that regard but very tasty sipper. i’m guessing it had at least a little age on because for how strong it is, it wasn’t hot. very smooth, a little thick and sticky, but in a nice throat coating way. for around $10, probably can check this one off and move on, thanks to Pfoxyjohn, but I am glad to have tried it."

15 SEP 2007 vintage. Pours with scarce head; deep amber; strong fruitcake dunked in port aroma; strong alcohol burn it tastes as though its IBUs are higher than 20... it is much like a desert wine. Not sure I would classify this as a beer... more of a desert wine.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle 2007. Aroma is 90% raisin, brown sugar, caramel, malt sugars. Body is thick with a long lingering sweet dates or raisin finish. To me it seems the sugars took over and went a little into over ripe dates and vinegar. I couldn’t even finish my 4 onces maybe it shouldn’t have been aged or something. Weird.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: DEC 30, 2014 Bottle (12oz $12.50): dated 9/2006,8years old. Pour cloudy brown. There was quite a bit of sediment stuck to the bottom of the bottle. Big raison, Big sweetness. Big warming in both aroma and taste. Bottle says 19%ABV. Great sipper.
Update: Bottle dated 11/24/14: No sediment on the new bottle. Did not enjoy as much as the first tasing. Not saying the aged is better, just that it seemed too sweet this time. My tastes are changing? Was 4, now 3.8

2007. Brown hazy dense no head. Aroma is big boozy raisin, thick grain. Flavor is the same with big hot sweetness and a dense contained bitterness. Feels is thick and oily. Not love but a hot and heavy lust.

4.3 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
Bottle, 2006. Pours tawny amber, no head. Aroma is impressive: caramel, raisin, prune, sweet bourbon, maple. Unreal. Taste is syrupy maple, sugar syrup, bourbon, brandied raisin, caramel apple. No heat. Delicious, like something Hair of the Dog might make. Easily the best I’ve had from DFH.
