World Wide Stout is one of the world’s strongest dark beers. It is brewed using six different yeast strains over seven months and then aged for half a year. Dark, rich, roasty, and complex, World Wide Stout has more in common with a fine port than a can of cheap, mass-marketed beer (released in early winter with very limited availability).

Smell of cacao, barley and malt. Drink from bottle. Taste of heavy alcohol like Bourbon. Feel heat dry throat after. Hint of barley, chocolate, coffee, malt. Smooth, thick and strong. Very good, rare and costly.

Mep3222 (1765) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - MAR 4, 2017
Roasted chocolate malty aroma with slight booze. Very full bodied stout with a slight sweet finish and some booze in the finish. Balanced and very nice but definitely feels like I am drinking some straight alcohol in there. Malt sweetness is just the right balance to the alcohol. Doesn't taste thick or sticky. Just solid all around. Think the alcohol acts almost as hops to the malt. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

VastActiv (8285) - Oulu/Helsinki, FINLAND - FEB 15, 2017
Tap at Dogfish Head, Milton. Colour is very dark brown with very small brownish head. Aromas and flavors: Dark chocolate, coffee, some bourbon and roasted malts. Massive. Strong malts. Pretty dry.

Hopper8 (304) - Holland, Michigan, USA - FEB 12, 2017
There doesn’t seem to be any flavor but booze, and the booze isn’t even complex.

mariuspoenari (3226) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 11, 2017
Bottle shared at Maakun’s. Dark caramel pour with a thin tan head. Notes of bourbon, burnt caramel, toasted coconut and quite a bit of dried fruit. Medium body and carbonation and a strong alcoholic finish.

Maakun (7223) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 10, 2017
Bottle shared by me. Black with small beige head. 2012 vintage. Plums, raisins, figs, burning alcohol, some dark chocolate, dried dates, brown sugar, light spices. Quite sweet with alacolic bitterness. Over medium bodied. Nice beer but too much alcohol.

BlackBeerPG (1096) - Darien, Illinois, USA - FEB 7, 2017
Taste: Bold dark malts, dark fruit raisins, molasses, sticky, intense, boozy, some hop hidden in finish. Deep roasted malt and coffee nose. Black, opaque, and a very refined head with nice lattice. Med/Full body. Big alcohol.

Blairgus (4635) - California, USA - FEB 4, 2017
4 Jan 2017, tap. (16.4%) Black. Nose is rather burnt, meaty, moderate alcohol. Ned/full body and mildly fizzy. Messy, lots of alcohol, cherry, chocolate, alcohol. Huge, intense. Awesome!

Quick3Beers (1658) - East Falmouth, Massachusetts, USA - FEB 3, 2017
Pours black from a bottle, nearly no head, what little there is is not long lasting. Aroma of cherry cordial that hasn’t been bitten into yet. Flavor, I’m picking up on apple, notes of bubblegum, molasses, a big mishmash but it’s pretty good. Boozy but not burny. Pretty good beer.

darb85 (321) - Canton, Michigan, USA - FEB 3, 2017
Sweet fruit and cocoa nose,a hint of booze. Black with minimal head almost no lacing. Sweet chocolate and a hint of cocaou and a slight booze warmth in finish. Off ceder hit occasionally. A bit of an alcohol build that ruins an otherwise good beer. Nice palate, if a little thin.
