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.

tectactoe (2343) - Michigan, USA - DEC 27, 2014
Bottle: Deep brown, slight blackness towards the core with a very thin, light-tan coating skimmed across the top. Not robust enough to be called a head, even after an aggressive pour. Kind of bland & mundane aroma, though not necessarily off-putting. Just... eh. Dry cocoa shavings, a touch of sweet cream, dry oak & woodsy notes, a touch of vanilla, & a light hand of roast. Kind of blends in with any other generic stout out there, perhaps with a little more of a woodiness (the oak, duh). The flavor introduces a little more coffee alongside the mild onset of cocoa dust, oak dryness, & roasted malt. Vanilla is almost nonexistent on the palate. Dry woodsy & roasted malt finish. Thin body for the style. Didn’t get any smoke from this (isn’t is made from peated malt?) so not sure what happened there. Like I said, not offensive or bad by any means, just a bit bland & repetitive.

A most delicious stout. Real dark in color, with a pleasant scent. Good strong taste, leaves a good aftertaste. Dominion keeps putting out beers s good as this and they without a doubt will be the second best brewery in Delaware, second only to Dogfish’s top flavors.

Kauge (364) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 30, 2014
Transferring some earlier reviews from my blog to RB. Märts 2014, City Beverage, London. Valades pruunika varjundiga must, vähene vaht on suht hele kreemikas, pole eriti püsiv. Aroom suitsune-röstine, kange kohvine, hapukas. Hiljem lisandub ka magusamaid noote: kuivatatud ploomid või viigimarjad. Maitselt šokolaadine ja kohvine, üpris mõrkjas. Aktiivse mulliga, jätab kurku kuiva tunde, kehalt kerge. Mullisuselt üpris aktiivne, kehalt kerge, hõre, ilma raskemeelse täidluse ja kleepja paletita. Ei mingit sametisust. Kas viga minus, ei tea, aga ka tõotatud vanilje ja männilaastud peidavad end ülihästi - neid ma ei kohtagi. Kokkuvõttes: kohvine, šokolaadine, kuiv, mulline, kerge. Ei jätnud kuigi head muljet. Peaks võimalusel uuesti proovima.

floydslip (202) - Washington DC, USA - NOV 20, 2014
Dark cola-colored beer with a late-forming thin beige head. Virtually non-existent nose, but what’s there has some light chocolate, dark caramel, and nuts. Flavor is much more pronounced than the aroma with rich roasted grain, hints of burnt wood, and sweet vanilla coming through slightly. This is offset by a mild bitterness. Pretty thin for a stout, which goes with the rather mild flavor profile. Pretty good.

Benzai (8987) - 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.
