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.

pours out dark brown almost black in color with a tan head. smells like vanilla and coffee combined with chocolate. taste is smooth rich and sweet. this one gets alot better the more it warms closer to room temp. definatly a winner and certainly something everyone should try at some point. awesome

12 oz bottle: pours black with a creamy tan head. the aroma is awesome. oak and coffee with hints of vanilla and chocolate. sweet and slighty floral aromas. this is probably the best regular "stout" i have had to date. quite drinkable. the initial flavor is chocolate, then fades to oak and coffee with notes of vanilla on the end. didnt quite get the bourbon flavor i was hoping for but its still a great beer.

pours black with a small tan head. Aroma is mostly roasted with a little vanilla. A good bit thinner than the brewpub version. I think that’s one of the things I liked about it. All of the flavors are there but somethings just missing. I never expected this much difference between the two.

oh6gdx (20217) - Vasa, FINLAND - JAN 26, 2005
Bottled. Opaque black, not that much of a head. Smells of coffee, vanilla and a bit of caramel. The taste goes well along with the aroma. The taste misses something though (compared to aroma, which was very promising for the beer).

VTHopHead (1511) - Barre, Vermont, USA - JAN 23, 2005
Bottle - Pours a very dark black/brown with very little head or carbonation. Aroma is of coffee and sweet caramel and vanilla. Flavor matches the aroma... another rater mentions roasted marshmellows... its true!

Bottled 10th June 2004
Opaque black, not much head. Excellent aroma of coffee beans, smoke, vanilla and toffee.Quite watery palate: malts and slightly roasted flavor which is dominated by vanilla flavor. A bit sharp and metallic mouthfeel.

MMMMM. This is a very nice stout indeed. Pours black with a very small tan head. Flavor is a nice malty as well as the aroma. Very good.

PattyBoy (302) - North Liberty, Iowa, USA - JAN 13, 2005
Bottle, pours black with a nice tan head. Aroma is vanilla, roasted malt and wood. Taste matches the aroma, roasted malts, vanilla, wood, a little chocolate. This is very good all the flavors meld together nicely. I’ve had the tap version of this in the past and it’s even better than the bottle.

Bottled November, Looks like a typical stout, rich chocolate-like body, foamy dark-tan head. Pleasant taste matches the aroma (of fire-roasted marshmallows). Chocolate, coffee, vanilla, oak, hints of caramel and roasty malts. Pulls together at the end like a champ.
