Dogfish Head World Wide Stout

Whoa. Let me start by saying I'm not really a stout drinker. I bought this beer because I read an article about it proclaiming it's virtues and it's high alcohol content (supposedly, something like 18 or 22%). This beer is super dark, it's a black hole from which light does not return. My bottle had a very low level of carbonation and not the nitrogen-type you get with Guiness. Unlike most stouts I've had, this beer is super sweet. It's like a Belgian Trippel. The aroma reminds me of a red dessert wine. Phew, you can tell it's really alcoholic, but this sweetness pretty much covers it.

When I look at this it kind of reminds me of a cola, and the alcohol hits you in the corners of my neck a little bit. I get the sense this would give me a nasty hangover. Fortunately I'm only going to drink this one. I recommend people give this a try for the novelty, but I probably won't go for it again.
