Instant Beer Review: World Wide Stout

20140617-170834-61714032.jpg

WELL, ISN’T THAT AN ADORABLE LITTLE GLASS OF BEER! It is, isn’t it!

WHAT IS THAT CUTE LITTLE BASTARD CALLED? Why it is a World Wide Stout from Dogfish Head Brewing.

WHAT’S THE MATTER WITH YOU? ARE YOU FEELING ILL? DON’T FEEL UP TO DRINKING A BIG BOY-SIZED BEER? Nope, this is how it’s served.

THAT’S A LITTLE RIDICULOUS. Not really, it’s an 18% stout.

*spit take* 18% ABV? Yup.

AT LUNCHTIME?? Yup.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? #yolo

WELL, HOW IS IT? Boozy–

NO SHIT. –but remarkably smooth. The beer menu tells me that WWS is “fermented for over seven months with six different yeast strains.” Complex, robust flavor combinations abound.

OKAY. DO YOU LIKE IT? It’s not exactly what I was particularly in the mood for when I walked through the door, but I had to try it. And, yes, I do like it. World Wide Stout is dark–really dark–with an array of chocolate and coffee notes that are killing it when paired with my duck confit sandwich.

OH MY GOD. DUCK CONFIT SANDWICH? YOU’RE REALLY GOING FOR IT, DOUCHEY. I guess I am. Wanna fight about it?

WHERE ARE YOU ENJOYING THIS EXTRAVAGANT LUNCHEON? Brasserie V, on Monroe Street. I’m nailing this lunch.

TREAT YO’SELF. Always.

HOW MANY DOLLARS DOES THIS MAMMOTH BEER COST? $5.00 for a 6 oz. pour.

VERY REASONABLE. DEEP THOUGHTS? Considering I just consumed three beers-worth of alcohol in six ounces of liquid, I might need to take a walk around the block before I drive homewards.

WELL, STRICTLY DISCS IS RIGHT ACROSS THE STREET…. That place is my kryptonite. As a matter of fact, I think I will further indulge and purchase a stack of new music. Why not.

YOU DESERVE IT. BE HAPPY. Thanks, Voice Inside My Head.
