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.

From the bottle. Pours very dark with a thin off-white head. Intense smoky aroma of roasted coffee lingers with the glass. Flavors of chocolate and toffee with a bit of hazelnut/vanilla towards the end of the glass. Palate isnt heavy but very creamy with a bit of a hop finish.

Immy (1955) - Virginia Beach, USA - OCT 19, 2005
VERY dark brown, almost black, with a thin brown head. Nose of roasted coffee and nuts, traces of vanilla. VERY rich, with flavors of smoked coffee, light tobacco, sweet malt and vanilla. Malted milkballs! Very tasty, although a bit heavy. Satiny smooth mouthfeel, and just a touch of smoky, burnt coffee and hop bitter in the finish. Does not wane, true to the last sip. What an interesting VA porter! Proud to be a Virginian!

9er (91) - Maryland, USA - OCT 12, 2005
UPDATED: AUG 1, 2010 There is a sweet and sour sensation on the paIet and there is a noticeable coffee flavor without any essence of vanila or oak as advertised by the label. This beer is mild Noting overwhelmed me at all. The after taste is actually bitter-sweet but the sensation is normally pleasant just not lasting nor memorable.

Odeed (1803) - Bakersfield, California, USA - OCT 4, 2005
(many thanks to goldtwins for sending me this.bottle reads jul. 15 200...and the rest is cut off)the d.o.b. poured a black body that shown a bit of brown around the edges when held to light.as far as head the only thing it had in this department was a tine brown ring around the snifter glass.the aroma was very tempting and made my eyes light up at the first sniff.chocolate,coffee,oak,vanilla,and raosted malt all made up the complex aroma.the first sip brought on loads of vanilla,then some oak,and roasted malts to follow.the mouthfeel was a little on the light side and i could taste a bit of oxidation.but this is still a very nice stout indeed.

DrBeer (862) - Solna Stockholm, SWEDEN - OCT 2, 2005
Pitch black without head. Coffee aroma with notes of chocolate, vanilla, licorice, malt and cookies. Vanilla flavor with notes of coffee, chocolate and smoke. Thin, and where is the stout? You can either hide a bad beer or spice up a good one with barrel aging. This being the former.

wnhay (722) - Princeton, New Jersey, USA - SEP 30, 2005
Bottle. Poured dark brown with a solid tan head. Pretty good retention. Aroma had vanilla, coffee bean, chocolate, caramel and courant. The vanilla was quite effective in the taste. This was really good but didnt wow me.

PorterPounder (7761) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2005
On tap at Summit Wayside Tavern in Atlanta, Ga. Dark, ruby red pour, mocha colored head, good thick lacing. Not much of an aroma, what is there is reminiscent of fresh water from a lake. Flavor is somewhat winey, yet sweet. Pick up hints of coffee, chocolate with some underlying candied sugar. Mouthfeel just a tad thinner than expected.
