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.

Benzai (8704) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - NOV 13, 2014
Bottle @ weekly tasting shared by Joes. Opaque very dark brown to black color with a deep dark red glare coming through, average to medium sized beige head. Aroma is malts, lightly roasted malts, dark raisins. Taste malts, lightly roasted malts, a hint of raisins. Is there a hint of wood? Well, I think it’s because it says it has oak chips. Anyway, it’s not very good imo. Drinkable, but not very good.

Holmen1 (2685) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 23, 2014
Flaske fra Kihoskh (såvidt jeg husker) på RBHD-treff, Tau okt-14: brunsvart med kort lysebrunt skum. Myk, lekkert balansert og kompleks aroma med solbær, vanilje, lakris og sjokolade. Smaken følger naturlig opp, men etter hvert blir den litt flat og enkel og vanlijen får dominere. Halvtørr.
