We use smoked and peated malts to create an intricate malt foundation. Our method of dry hopping with vanilla beans and oak chips pushes the depth of this stout’s flavor spectrum even further.

This one pours dark, dark, brown with shallow, frothy head that isn't going anywhere. Aroma is vanilla and roasted chocolate - taste to match. Smooth, thick mouth-feel. Overall, a very enjoyable beer that I would seek out again. Don't hesitate to give this one a try.

Beautiful roasted, burnt aroma and black as night with slight browning around the edges when held up to light. Glides down your throat like soft silk, temping you with flavors of vanilla oak and dark malt. This beer is sweet like dark chocolate and complex enough to sit and savor, but not overly so. Good stuff Old Dominion!

Pours obsidian, nice light brown head, decent lacing.

Smell is ripe fruit; cherries, raisin. Then the vanilla, a light espresso and hints of cocoa.

Taste is rich and colorful, nice amount of chocolate mixed with vanilla.

Mouthfeel is lighter than expected, as I wasn't aware of the 5.2 abv. Very solid for the alcohol content. There is an element of toned down wateriness, however this beer handles it well. Unusual dry and refreshing finish. Sticky guinness-like mouthfeel.

Drinkability is excellent given the alcohol. A standout brew, quite frankly I wish they distributed here.
