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.

vadavid (142) - Fredericksburg, Virginia, USA - MAY 6, 2008
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. There’s 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 that’s not too much of an issue.

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.

A decent stout, not overly complex but very easy to drink. The oak is not very pronounced, can’t really tell it’s there at all.

italianjohn (2754) - Penndel, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 30, 2015
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
