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.

leaparsons (10765) - Wigston, Leicestershire, - OCT 6, 2012
Bottle. Black with a beige head. Aromas are coffee, chocolate and vanilla with caramel. Slightly smoky with marzipan and blackberry. Flavours are coffee and sweet cola with lots of nutty marzipan. Dark berries with dark chocolate and citrus bitterness. Dry on the aftertaste. Good. Mine was 5.8 according to the import label.

From Nov 2007 his one pours from 12oz bottle(bottled 091907) a near pitch black with some reddish hues and a small tannish head of foam that recedes to a fine broken layer half way through the session but it has some good lacing. The smell is of caramel malt, vanilla, chocolate, and bourbon. It's nice. The taste has all sorts of flavours going on. Lots of vanilla and bourbon and wood with helpings of chocolate, roasted malt, a slight citrus bitterness in the background and it finishes witha nice hot cocoa bitter bite but..it's smooth as all hell and it doesn't hurt that it's only 5.2%abv; it makes it sessionable as hell. lol Man, is this son of a gun drinkable and velvety smooth. Great fullish mouthfeel and it's lightly carbonated. I like this one a lot!! Lots of flavour, easy to drink, smooth, this has it all going on. I'd get this one again, no problem.

12 ounce bottle. Opaque dark brown color. Small creamy beige head. Roasted malt flavor is a bit thin. Notes of oak and vanilla, I think? A bit of chocolate on the finish. No barrels were harmed in the making of this stout.

caribouandcake (6) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAR 16, 2017 does not count
bottle. pours black with the tiniest glimmer of ruby. minimal, off-white head which drifts away quickly leaving a patchy lacing on the glass. aroma fairly bland, nothing standing out. some slight coffee but nothing pushing through. bitter tastes abound, balanced well with dark chocolate. burnt flavours in the background. very smooth oath/creamy finish, which lingers long and disappears gradually.

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours very dark brown with a tan head and some lacing. The aroma is vanilla and some oak. The taste is vanilla, milk, and oatmeal. It’s very smooth. The vanilla tastes natural and isn’t overpowering. This was a lot better than expected. I’d get more from this brewery.

12 oz bottle. This had a nice taste overall with real flavor from the oak barrel. One of the better oak stouts on the market.

Tried on draft. Solid stout with good taste and finish. Not as heavy as Guiness but still quite filling. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: AUG 28, 2016 Version 5.5% alcool datée du 27/05/2016, bue après 3 mois. Robe noire opaque avec un mince col de mousse blanchâtre qui laisse une fine dentelle collante. Arômes orientés vers le malt rôti avec de minces effluves de vanille, café froid et chocolat au noisettes. Je ne détecte aucunement le chêne. En bouche, sensiblement la même chose, beaucoup de malt roti et café, un peu de chocolat et vanille. On sent finalement un côté boisé en finale, mélangé à du cacao et grains de café entiers. Les saveurs sont fades, la texture aqueuse et le corps mince à moyen. Je croyais avoir un stout goûteux par l’addition de vanille et chêne mais on se retrouve avec une bière dans la grosse moyenne. Peut-être un manque de fraîcheur. Dommage

katrinaez (2251) - norristown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 30, 2016
Low oak scent and flavour, a bit watery. Slight sweetness up front. Not a lot of hops or bitter,but still a nice velvet coating and a thick enough to a be a decent style for the beer. Bottle
