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.

superspak (3512) - Michigan, USA - DEC 5, 2012
12 ounce bottle into tulip glass, bottled on 7/31/2012. Pours a fairly pitch black color with a 1 finger fairly dense khaki head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings to the glass. Aromas of big caramel, milk chocolate, vanilla, toffee, roasted malt, oak, toast, light coffee, and light smoke. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity. Taste of chocolate, caramel, vanilla, oak, smoke, roasted malt, toast, toffee, and light smoked ham. Slight roasty bitterness on the finish; with lingering notes of milk chocolate, caramel, roasted malt, oak, toast, toffee, and smoke on the finish for a bit. Very nice flavor balance and robustness; very pronounced but balanced oak flavor; with zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and body; with a fairly creamy and slightly slick mouthfeel that is nice. It feels a touch on the thin side, but it’s not detrimental. Alcohol is very well hidden with almost zero warming noticed after the finish. Overall this is a very nice oak aged stout. Nice amount of robust flavors for a 6% beer with a nice balanced smoke complexity; and extremely smooth to drink as expected. A very enjoyable offering.

Great tasting dark beer with a roasted flavor and a mild sweetness aftertaste. Not as thick as some other beers and overall a great beer.

fordest (2073) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - JUL 31, 2015
Very dark pour from the bottle at Dulles. No head to speak of. Not much aroma either. But the flavor really kicked things into gear. Chocolate and burnt toasted flavors. Very tasty stuff.

prawlie (1284) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2015
Bottle from Barleyshops in Congleton. Black with a light brown foamy head. This has a good nose on it, light roast with vanilla and acidity. Smooth and tasty. Vanilla notes, oak (what a surprise), malty. Pretty good, that a little to acid for me and not enough chocolate.

Bottle - Pours very dark with a creamy head and some big carb bubble. Aromas of fig and chocolate. Well balanced with some cigar and floral notes. Decent stout.
