Milton, Del., July 21, 2017 - Dark, rich, roasty and complex, Oak-Aged Vanilla World Wide Stout from Dogfish Head Craft Brewery is now shipping to taps and shelves.  A beautiful beer to evolve with aging, this stout is brewed with a ridiculous amount of barley and aged in real 10,000 gallon oak tanks with heaps of vanilla beans.  Brewed beyond the limits of the average beer, Oak-Aged Vanilla World Wide Stout evolves from a complex wort into a big, bad blackened stout, brewed to last for decades, resulting in a wonderfully authentic tapestry of roasted malty, toasted vanilla flavors with subtle coffee notes.  

“When we first began brewing World Wide Stout at our brewpub back in the winter of 1999, the first batch sold out in less than a week -  and nearly 18 years later the response has continued to be amazing,” said Sam Calagione, founder and CEO of Dogfish Head Craft Brewery. “At Dogfish, our raison d'être is to expand the boundaries of the typical beer experience by creating innovative beers made from fresh ingredients, so we decided to take a new spin on our popular stout by adding tons of whole Madagascar vanilla beans to the recipe.  The addition of the beans enhances the coffee and chocolatey notes in the beer which we think our fans will enjoy.” 

This opaque complex ale clocks in at 16% ABV and has a depth more in line with a fine port.  It actually goes great with (or as) dessert.  A big old slice of decadent cheesecake is the perfect pair for this velvety stout.  “Like Fort and 120 Minute IPA, Oak-Aged Vanilla World Wide Stout only gets better in its golden years, said Calagione. “With aging, you’ll find the heat of the booze fades into the background and the port notes and vanilla roastiness takes over,” said Calagione.  “Grab a few bottles, enjoy one now and lay the others down for a few years.”  To find and enjoy Oak-Aged Vanilla World Wide Stout and other off-centered Dogfish Head brews in your area, visit www.dogfish.com/brewery/fishfinder.
