COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
The brewers at Dogfish are at it again. Can you make the World Wide Stout better? Age it in Bourbon Barrels, to soften the deep malt flavors for months to allow it to grow in complexity absorbing slight oak flavors and some bourbon nose featuring vanilla. Then take it one step further and cask condition it with New England Maple syrup for a little sweetness. This is the one and only cask of this beer we intend to make it. Why wooden you want to try it?

Despite the aroma of alcohol overpowering the aroma of a stout, I've never seen 18% alcohol presented in a tastier way. At $10 a bottle it's a little pricey for me but I've never had a better high ABV beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Draft at blue monk on 1/15/14. Dark pour with a thin dark brown head. Nose is chocolatey, sweet, bourbon, coffee. Taste is really smooth, nice and balanced. Tones down and smoothes out the base beer. Thanks Dogfish for bringing this to buffalo, and to swoopjones for having the best beer bar in Buffalo.

Bebum (218) - - OCT 25, 2013
Dark brown/ black, little head, Alcoholic nose. Full body bit little flavor, very alcoholic mouth sensation, dominating first impressions and lasting to the end. Sweet more than bitter, like dried fruit in brandy or heavily drenched fruit cake, sweet finish, alcoholic aftertaste. Good cooking beer, to use in desserts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

NobleSquirrel (3437) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUL 17, 2013
Draft at NHC in Philly. Pours black with brown hints. Thin brown head. Nose is big and sweet. Big and boozy as well. Strong bourbon and oak notes along with licorice and roast. On tasting, quite sweet overall. The oak brings a touch of balance and the roast is a touch drying. Kind of misses the mark, but I don’t really like the base beer either...

2008 bottle. Aroma is strong licorice and booze. Pour is pitch black with no head. Sip is strong port with just a hint of roastiness. Very good, very strong.
