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.

On draft. Well, my wife liked this, and I did not. I found it much too sweet and strongly vanilla flavored. I love stout and in general repect Dominion beers... htis is niot flawed, but not to my taste. Too much oak and vanilla, too little stout. But obviously this is a well liked beer, so try it and see.

Low oak scent and flavour, a bit watery. Slight sweetness up front. Not a lot of hops or bitter,but still a nice velvet coating and a thick enough to a be a decent style for the beer. Bottle

Bottle thanks to Klimaet. Pours a dark brown, almost black. Clear with a fizzy, tan head. Aroma has chocolate malts, vanilla, roasted malts, light oak, some toffee. Taste is watery, sweet, milk chcolate, light artificial vanilla and a tiny roasty bitter finish. Watery body and a rather fizzy carbonation. Tastes like cheapness...

Definitely getting a big oak aroma from this one. Chocolate, coffee and vanilla. Lot’s of oak and vanilla. Taste is smooth and again, full of vanilla, oak and chocolate. Very easy to drink and super affordable. Definitely recommended.

Pours a dark brown with a fairly creamy off white head which lingers.....aroma of chocolate, touch of vanilla, lactose?......taste is a bit thin, sweetness, slight vanilla, very slight wood notes....mostly just sweetness coming through. Was hoping for a bit more.

Bottle at Googies Folkestone. Black beer lasting tan head. Chocolate stout aroma. Yes so me oak comes through. Not much vanilla. Mostly a woody flavour from the barrel . Yes some sweetness. Not overly lactose. Decent. Not amazing. Too cold and fizzy ok.
