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.

HighlanderOne (985) - Bergen County, New Jersey, USA - JUL 6, 2014
Poured from bottle. Aroma of malt and licorice. Stout black with a bit of tan head. I taste toasted malt, wood, vanilla, oat, cocoa, cherry, licorice. Just slightly sweet. Earthy hops in back. Not phenomenal, but pretty good.

chucklemation (409) - Pontiac, Michigan, USA - JUN 29, 2014
Bottle was expired by nearly 3 months (I misread the date), but it was still good. Pours a black color with a light off-white foam. Aroma is oak and vanilla. Flavor is oak, vanilla, and hints of wood and roasted malts. Lightly sweet. Very good. I want to try a fresh bottle.

SlackerMads (1419) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 28, 2014
Bottle. Black with a medium sized diminishing light brown head. Coffee, cocoa, vanilla, wood mingles with citrus and pine hop notes. Medium body, oily texture, medium carbonation, medium sweet and bitter, light acidic. Long vanilla and cocoa finish. The vanilla could be toned a bit down for my taste, but good enough without being spectacular.

DruncanVeasey (7098) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle from AP Harvey Wines, Coventry watching US Vs Portugal. Feel physically sick for the Americans, especially as I had them to win 2-1 at 14-1. The beer: greige-lidded tar edged with ruby. Fruity high cocoa, aged rum and coconut aroma. Something of a Caribbean stout or schwarzbier feel on the palate with toasted coconut, rum, rye bread and yeast extract notes. Pleasant if a little thin and obvious.

Burgers (246) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 10, 2014
Dark brown with crema head. Nose and coffee. Taste subdued sweet and bitter. Palate medium, creamy texture. Finish fairly dry. Improves as you drink it but not particularly special. No obvious sign of vanilla or oak.

doradobotella (89) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 10, 2014
Apariencia: De un color negro intenso y con una llamativa y cremosa capa de espuma beige con excelente retención. Aroma: Impresionante a malta tostada y vainilla, acompañado de un ligero toque ahumado. Sabor: Tostado, ligeramente cafetoso y ahumado, con un agradable final no excesivamente amargo.

charlotte (4087) - rødovre, DENMARK - JUN 9, 2014
Bottle.Pitch black colour with off-beige head.Aroma roosted and sourish with hint of licorice and malt, guess that a barrel stout must be better then that,fells overall a bit thin and boring.

dliberto (130) - Hampstead, Maryland, USA - MAY 21, 2014
Drank from the bottle. Aroma is vanilla, licorice, chocolate, and mild notes of coffee. The oak does not come out like I hoped in the taste, but the vanilla really shines. Thin and sweet. Solid beer.

revolution2718 (203) - New Jersey, USA - MAY 20, 2014
Pours dark with red highlights, minimal head. Nose is roasty, vanilla, lactose, maybe a little chocolate. Taste is mild, roasty, vanilla, not really sweet nor dry. Very thin watery mouthfeel. Not overly aromatic or flavorful. Sub par while not being offensive. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
