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.

Butters (4020) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 28, 2010
Bottle scored from the WBF richmond. Pours a clear reddish copper with no real head. Nose of burgandy, sweetness, some vanilla, and surprisingly no alcohol heat. Flavor brings the alcohol, along with sherry, and strong sweet malty backbone. Very syrupy, but not viscous, and fairly thick. Very enjoyable after dinner cordial. But still has a bit too much heat on it. I would bet this would mellow perfectly with a few years on it.

Chestnut reddish brown with a small crema. Aroma is rich and fruity with stonefruit. Taste is similarly rich, with relatively high hop bitterness and serious tannins. 13/pitcher

UPDATED: APR 6, 2010 bottle from late ’06 ..burnt caramel look, and some in the nose with some soy.. light smoke.. pretty full- great covering .. a decent brew, and not overdone .. good abv .. .. The point is, how do you know the fairy isn’t a crazy glue sniffer? "Building model airplanes" says the little fairy; well, we’re not buying it. He sneaks into your house once, that’s all it takes. The next thing you know, there’s money missing off the dresser, and your daughter’s knocked up. I seen it a hundred times.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - JAN 28, 2010
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2010 Bottle from Immy. Abrazame muy fuerte!
Pours a nice, thin-from-aging maple syrup brown. Light body that only reveals a head along the edge of the sniffer glass. Aroma is a medely of peach and orange marmalade, candied oak, woody pear, and diluted apple juice. Flavor is a peach/grapefruit Kool-Aid with sweet syrup stored in a dusty oak container. Nice, lingering mouthfeel. A very nice late night treat. Después de acabar esta cerveza, gritaré cariñosamente en la noche de modo que usted viniera a mí.

arminjewell (9210) - East Lansing, Michigan, USA - JAN 3, 2010
Side by side pour with regular Millenium. Pours orange/amber, lighter than the original, with slight off white head. The aroma is much smoother hop and malt blending, and the taste is a much cleaner hop that gives way to a nice smooth sweet malt character that is tart because of the oak. Awesome beer.

theisti (3734) - Kansas, USA - DEC 8, 2009
12 oz painted bottle shared by Gregis. Bottled on 111706 stamped on the label. Pour is hazed orange ruby amber with a very minimal off white head. Nice lacing for a beer without much head. Aroma of initial sweet caramel maltiness, followed quickly behind by a dry dusty sherry - nice but a touch oxidized with quite a bit of cardboard showing through. Taste is the nose, caramel sweet malts, followed by dusty oxidized cardboard minor sour earthiness. Palate is medium, the oxidized cardboard nature thins it out a little bit. Really no alcohol present. Nice stuff, thanks for sharing this one Greg.
