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.

This beer pours jet black with a robust beige head. Some lacing is left behind as the head slowly drops. The aroma is that of dark chocolate and roasted malt, with faint vanilla notes. The flavor has roasted malts and oak, with some licorice. As the beer warms a slight smokiness comes out. The mouthfeel is smooth and creamy. Thereís a nice lingering hop bitterness, but none of the expresso astringency that one finds in some stouts. This is one goes down easily, perhaps too easily. However, at just 5.2% ABV thatís not too much of an issue.

Aroma: toasted malts, chocolate, liquorice, vanilla, dark fruits. Appearance: very dark brown, medium, frothy, beige head. Taste: light sweet. Palate: toasted malts with chocolaty flavours continue, prunes, vanilla, maybe a touch of wood. Overall: nice Stout, could maybe a bit more intense on the barrel ageing, yet very nice and decently complex. Bottle at the Lockhart, Marylebone.

Black pour with a thin off white head ... Aroma of vanilla, roasted malts and dark chocolate. Aroma on the lighter side ... Taste is of sweet vanilla, light dry oak, roasted malts and a mix of dark and semisweet chocolate .... Finish is dry with some lingering roasted and sweet malt flavors and a hint of vanilla..... Very sessionable smooth and decent bodied stout

Bottle into pint glass at Dulles airport. Aroma is almost antiseptic which makes me think the glass was not properly rinsed. Some vanilla chocolate hints. Taste roasted w some vanilla softening. Not overly strong vanilla which is good. Dry, smooth. Solid stout. Not sure why I have not tried and reviewed sooner. Need to try again at home where I can control glass cleanliness. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

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.

Nice sweet stout. Really roasty, oaky, and alcohol sweet with a vanilla bean finish. Good balance. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
