We have just solved a brewery mystery (and it is delicious). We wondered what would happen if we put 2004 Dominion Millennium in oak barrels that had bourbon in them for five years. Three months later we had Oak Barrel Millennium. Something special, we think. Ruby-red color with a wide range of complex flavors. Malt and sherry predominate.

Ungstrup (36903) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - NOV 29, 2006
A hazy dark amber beer with a thin off-white head. The aroma is sweet with lots of overripe fruits, as well as light notes of alcohol, caramel, and lemon. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of alcohol and overripe fruits, leading to an end with notes of citrus combined with a bitternes, and a alcohol burn lingering on the tongue.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2007
UPDATED: APR 21, 2009 (Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of CaptainCougar. Pours a hazy amber golden with a small, white head. Distinct aroma of oak and bourbon. Medium body - surprisingly considering its strength - extremely dry with a distinctly alcoholic whisky note. Really, really dry as a bone - I wouldve liked a little more sweetness here. 230807

Pleasant aromatic vanilla and bourbon nose that carries through to the flavour. Lovely smooth malt with a sweet note. Really well joined up. Lovely!

fiulijn (20266) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 4, 2007
Vintage 2006
Beautiful red-amber color. The aroma has an elegant vanilla presence and Bourbon whisky touch. Full mouthfeel, sweet, malty, with a vanilla touch and rum flavor. Well balanced by a strong bitterness.

Comparison to the non oak aged version. This one has less malt aroma, less complex flavor, less alcohol feeling, less bitterness, a thinner body. Its softer. A different beer, to drink once in a while.

MiP (15479) - Snderborg, DENMARK - JAN 21, 2008
Bottle, 11.4%. Vinous, fat vanilla aroma. Hazy brown/red colour. Very small tan head. Distinct vanilla flavour and medium bitterness in good balance. The vanilla somehow reminds me of vitamin pills, but it is quite good. Very late alcohol flavour, but not that noticeable.
