As of approximately July 2007 the new ownership of Old Dominion has decided that the actual Oak Barrel version of this beer is not economically feasible. Thus the Oak Barrel Stout that is available at the brewpub is the exact same one that is in bottles. Aged in used Bourbon Oak barrels, Dominion Oak Barrel Stout is a lovely, creamy dark beer with a hint of chocolate and a distinctive vanilla, oak and bourbon flavor.

Note: aged in bourbon barrels and only available at the brewpub at the brewery.

Didn’t get much oak on this one at all. Tasted more like a light chocolate stout. Not bad.

A super dark brown pour, light tan head that rises about two fingers, gone quickly. Light lacing...Light aroma, combo of vanilla, coffee, and alcohol...The taste comes out of nowhere, no idea it would be this vanilla from the aroma. Dominated by vanilla on the front, but on the finish its dull bitter coffee and alcohol and wood. The finish is also very chalky, a residual powder feel which is not nice. Very alcoholic for a 5% beer. Overall, this is a big miss. The first sip is nice vanilla but after that its all downhill. The vanilla disappear and you get a powder feel.

12os btl thanks to FunkyBrewster. Pours dark with a frothy tan head. Slightly sweet aroma of vanilla and roasted malt. Most of the flavor is of vanilla that kicks in towards the finish. A little dark fruit, barrel, vanilla, and just a hint of bourbon. Not a bad stout.

12 oz bottle. Pours deep brown nearly black with a rocky light tan head. Aroma of sweet chocolate, vanilla, very woody and earthy, dry cocoa powder, a touch of sweet caramel candy. Flavor starts rich and roasted malt, slightly burnt malt and toast, picking up some vanilla and sweet chocolate. Finishes bittersweet with a touch of cream. Medium to full creamy body and a slightly sharper carbonation. Very good stout.

Pours a dark reddish brown with off white head. Aroma is bourbon, vanilla, dark fruits and chocolate. Aroma is fantastic. Taste is excellent as well with all the aromas coming together to create a sweet tasting stout. Very sticky mouthfeel but at the same time extremely smooth.

Bottled. Black with thinner tan head. Aroma is big vanilla, bourbon, chocolate, and all sweet. Flavor is very similar with a ton of wood and very complex...really really awesome! A lot of vanilla and not a lot of bitterness... I’m very impressed.
