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.

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 itís 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.

Bottle into pint glass at Dulles airport. Aroma is almost antiseptic which makes me think the glass was not properly rinsed. Some vanilla chocolate hints. Taste roasted w some vanilla softening. Not overly strong vanilla which is good. Dry, smooth. Solid stout. Not sure why I have not tried and reviewed sooner. Need to try again at home where I can control glass cleanliness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Black with a small head. Malty with a trace of liquorice and chocolate. Not quite as good as I expected. Felt that it was as experimental beer that didnít quite hit the target.

bottle - Pours very dark brown with a small tan head. The aroma is of dark roast malt and chocolate. It tastes of very dark roasted/toasted malt with chocolate, mild oak, and a hint of vanilla. Medium to full bodied, itís a pretty good brew.

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.
