Lots of vanilla on this stout. It's a great morning beer, not too dark on the roasted malt, not too thick, just right. Short lived tan head just a quarter inch tall. The nose presents smoked malt in small proportion and quite a bit more hops than is common in the style. Vanilla is the predominant flavor, but the malt complexity is awesome and layered. Oak presence is light and sweet, I'm guessing a pretty quick aging process. The body is a bit thin for a stout, and for the richness of flavors. It seems watered down to me, but the flavors are awesome. My first beer from old dominion is a hit.
