COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dominion Oak Barrel Stout is rich and smooth, a draught brew so popular at our Brewup that we found a way to bottle it for a wider audience. We combine seven different malts and two hops to create a delicious stout, that we dry-hop with fresh vanilla beans and toasted oak to finish our little treasure. The result is a stout that has the bourbon barrel flavor we all enjoy, and hope you will to.

Note: made with oak chips and vanilla beans, not aged in barrels. Available bottled and draft outside of the brewpub.

Dominion really brings out the vanilla in this stout....putting your nose to it is like sniffing a bottle of vanilla in the kitchen. Appearance is black with just a bit of brown...light does come through it. Small head with a wee bit of lacing. I had this once before and I really enjoyed then , too. Front end is not that impressive, but the back end is really full of vanilla.

Bottle courtesy of BuckNaked. Pours oily black with no head. Strong vanilla in the aroma with enough milk chocolate to pass for a Hershey’s bar if blindfolded. Taste is all vanilla so much that it dings the score a little bit. Almost like there is a whole bottle of extract in the beer. Overall still very good brew though.

Caramel nose. Dark opaque brown, big creamy brown head. Sweet milk chocolate and creme caramel flavor, earthy notes evident. A desert beer - too sweet and candyish for my taste.

Initial smell is of a hanging tree that made the interior of your old Escort not smell like farts. And just like your old escort, after awhile, the overwhelming smell of vanilla subsides to a slight ashtray reek. Unlike your old Escort, this stout is a pretty smooth ride. Goes down pretty nice. Just tasted way too artificial. I would like to try it on tap.

Pailhead (4820) - Brownstown, Michigan, USA - MAR 26, 2005
Bottle: Aroma is very sweet with dark chocolate, coffee, and vanilla. Pours a dark brown, virtually black, with a tan head that fades rather quickly. Quick initial chocolate flavor is instantly taken over by a huge vanilla and light coffee finish. Almost like pure vanilla extract with a touch of coffee added. Too much vanilla for me.

Suttree (5143) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 20, 2005
UPDATED: MAR 21, 2005 Black, thick tan head. Great oaky, vanilla aroma (no kidding...), with some rustic chocolatey notes. Rich, mellow flavor with hints of wine, coffee and chocolate, and a winey, peppery finish. The vanilla and oak is understated and doesn’t try to overpower you, which is nice. As it warms, some note of smoke emerge. Big, over the top bourbon flavors are noticebly absent. Thanks to Doclock for this one!

erway (1004) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - MAR 19, 2005
Pours an inky black with a nicely beaded tan head. Aromas of milk chocolate, vanilla, and lactic acid. Silky med. body. Some mildly sour flavors with lots of vanilla, cinnamon, and burnt grain complexity. Very nice.

Draft. Deep black. Slight off-brown/tan head glues to sides of glass for duration. Delicious.

drpimento (2226) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 1, 2005
Pours with a nice foamy, creamy tan head that fades to a constant light resilient head with lace. Very dark brown/black and opaque. The aroma is interesting: at first I notice something sweet and not right, but that gives way to lucsious thick caramelly, toffeeish, chocolatey, fecundity with hints of roasty bitterness. The flavor is the same way. Great body! I don’t really pick up any oakiness, but there is a lingering natural vanilla on my lips and tongue-tip. Yum! Got this in a beer of the month club and wish we cold get it locally. You hear me Kenny Allen???
