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.

Reviewed 12/22/2012. 12 oz bottle into a Duvel tulip. A: Pours a very dark brown color with good opacity. The head is quite nice - a two finger khaki color with a fantastic fluffy texture. Itís also slow to recede, though Iím a bit let down at the lack of significant lacing. S: Thereís quite a lot of dark chocolate and vanilla in the aroma. I can also pick up some roasted and smoked malts, a twinge of dark fruits, and mocha. Oaky notes donít really pop up. Still, a great example of a ísubtleí aroma. T/M: The front end of flavors are very vanilla heavy, but the sweetness is nullified somewhat by the clean, bone dry finish. This closely resembles an Irish stout in terms of how it drinks. Most of the other flavors pop up as random subtleties - hints of roasted malt, hints of chocolate, hints of smoke - to help augment the primary note of vanilla. This beer generally finishes quick and roasty, with a surge of oak tannins to help give its finishing characteristics. Wow, Iím surprised how much I like it. O: This is one of those hidden gems I regret not purchasing sooner. Hell, itís available in some GAS STATIONS in VA. A great session stout - think Guinness infused with vanilla, oak tannins, and steroids.

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.
