Dogfish Head’s World Wide Stout is as formidable a beer as you’ll ever find. In its softest years, it bottoms out at 18% ABV—at its strongest, it’s been 23%. Rich, deeply complex, and pretty darn sweet, it’s a beer best sipped contemplatively while wearing fuzzy slippers by a fireplace somewhere.
It’s probably not best enjoyed twelve bottles at a time. But that’s exactly what we did.
