COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We have just solved a brewery mystery (and it is delicious). We wondered what would happen if we put 2004 Dominion Millennium in oak barrels that had bourbon in them for five years. Three months later we had Oak Barrel Millennium. Something special, we think. Ruby-red color with a wide range of complex flavors. Malt and sherry predominate.

Bottle courtesy of ryan. Pours a hazy orange brown with a tan head. Nice nutty bready aroma with notes of honey. Flavor is sweet and herbal. Lots of caramel and biscuit. Slight infected sourness. Alcohol burn in the finish.

355mL 2006 Ed thanks to ryan! Clear tea amber pour with weak head. Collar of white foam. Nose is a bit oxidized- minty, oranges, caramel, mild bourbon, hints of mold and mushroom. Pretty solid older Barleywine nose. Taste is minty, juicy, a bit sweet, mild paper. Not too boozy. Not too osprey. Small lemon tartness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

2009 bottling. Pours reddish tan into a snifter with no head. Looks like sherry. Aromas are toffee, vanilla and cherry. Taste is wood, bourbon, vanilla, cherry, some toffee, and bitter hoppiness that is muted on the finish. Not nearly as sweet as I was expecting, and the booze is not real pronounced or hot. Hits all the right BW notes, and the oaky vanilla really rounds this one out. The aging has helped, too, I am sure. Excellent!

Bottle. Pours reddish brown with a thin off-white head. Aroma was vanilla, caramel, alcohol and had some notes of oak. Flavor was relatively sweet & malty with vanilla, fruit, caramel, a bit of toffee and a touch of oakiness.

12 oz bottle served in a tulip. Pour is a ruby river water with one finger of off-white head; the head is nice, but dissipates quickly and leaves only the modest show of lacing. Nose is oak beams, tobacco, barn, dust, hay, burnt caramel, and a very syrupy malt. Taste is a clone of this nose. WoW!!! The woody, sweet earth takes over and fireworks go off on the pallet. This is one of the best BWs I have come across. The pallet takes the sweet, deep (almost perfume like) musk and stays thick, without the roast, from start to finish. Matt from Capone’s recommended this, and it did not disappoint!

Pleasant aromatic vanilla and bourbon nose that carries through to the flavour. Lovely smooth malt with a sweet note. Really well joined up. Lovely!

Bottle of the ’06. Pretty big vanilla in the aroma, which is present but lighter in the flavor. It also has a light tartness to it. The flavor reminded me a little bit of coconut water.

12 oz. Bottle. Pours a reddish brown with a thin film of head. Sweet alcohol in the aroma with hints of oak. Some malty sweetness a firm hop bitterness. Lots of alcohol in the feel and down to the gut not unpleasant. Definetly a sipping beer. I think I would have rated it a little higher if I had it in the middle of winter by a fire.
