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).

2004 bottle @ Alex’s. Nose is a ton of malts and a hint of soy. Flavour is yum yum smooth here, which gives it some serious chocolate and raisin flavor, but it is really expertly brewed and the malt doesn’t taste hot and I didn’t detect any off flavors at all. Decadent.

Tasting at Alex’s. 12 fl oz bottles (thx, Alex!). Vintage 2004. Aroma is sweet, liquorice, leather, dark fruits. Taste is pretty the same, very complex. Amazing.

Bottle at tasting. Dark pour. Aroma of red fruit, subtle booze, port wine and some roast. Rich smooth taste of red fruit, warming booze, malt, subtle roast and a long finish. This is like a port wine beer. Very nice.

thepatrickman (1410) - Lewes, East Sussex, ENGLAND - MAR 30, 2016
2013 bottle. An extreme beer that’s big in just about every way. At 18%, it’s something you pretty much have to share with a friend, even in a 12oz bottle. There’s an absolute ton of malt here, which gives it some serious chocolate and raisin flavor, but it is really expertly brewed and the malt doesn’t taste hot and I didn’t detect any off flavors at all. Decadent.

ametras (1685) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 21, 2016
[2013] 12oz bottle. Pitch black with a thin foamy tan head. Flavors are roasted cereals, caramel, chocolate, molasses, vanilla, licorice, alcohol and dark fruits. Full body, soft carbonation, syrupy texture. Surprisingly drinkable considering the ABV.

Viper666 (3289) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 7, 2016
Bouteille à 18% abv (2004?). Nez de malt rôti, de chocolat noir, de mélasse, d’alcool liquoreux, légèrement fruité assez boisé (prunes, léger de raisins, notes de figues) avec des notes fumées, de sucre brun, de réglisse noire, de café et de vanille. Très ronde en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-bas et une texture crémeuse et liquoreuse. Goût fruité boisé (prunes, raisins, léger de figues, notes de cerises), de vanille avec des notes de réglisse noire lors de l’entrée en bouche auquel se rajoute rapidement un goût amer de malt rôti, de chocolat noir et de mélasse sucrée (léger de caramel toffee sucré et notes de sucre brun) parallèlement à un goût d’alcool moyen-fort très liquoreux et réchauffant (à la limite du brûlant) ainsi qu’un léger goût de café noir et de houblon herbeux et le tout sur un fond de notes de malt fumé. Arrière-goût long, amer d’alcool, de rôti, de chocolat, de café et de houblon avec un goût fruité (moût de raisins et de prunes). [notes 2006]

adster (820) - HUNGARY - FEB 5, 2016
Tükörsima, hab nélküli főzet pokolfekete színben, amelynek csak a legfelső rétegén, a pohár falához legközelebb lévő pár milliméternyi gyűrűjén hatol át a fény. Érett, komplex aromákkal bír, valóban közeli rokonság jelei sejlenek fel valamely testes vörösborral illatai tekintetében. Quadrupelesen diós, tömött illatjegyek egy intenzív, fás-hordós karakterrel, valamint édeskés, szinte sziruposan édes gabonás hangulatokkal. A desszertszerű szálak tovább szövődnek aztán ízében is, konyakmeggy, zserbó, cukrozott kávé és rumos csokoládé képe rajzolódik ki monumentális jelleggel, a szerkezet azonban valahogy túlságosan is sima és már-már sterilbe hajló, annyira csendes a karakter. Az idő vélhetően megtette hatását, a palack ugyanis már nem mai darab, a komponensek így tökéletesen összeértek, egymásba forrtak, a letisztult és zavartalan környezetben pedig egyszerűen lehetetlen megállapítani, mennyire erős itallal van dolgunk, már ami az alkoholfok mértékét illeti, az ugyanis tökéletesen belesimul az egyébként is kiugrásmentes szerkezetbe. Sötét és gazdag, mély és intenzív főzet, pont olyan, amilyennek egy nagynevű imperial stoutnak lennie kell.
