Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

I had this on tap at the Dominion pub in Dulles Airport, served chilled in a pint glass.

The color is deepest walnut brown with a thick dark tan head with fine bead spots of lace cling. The smell is strong with vanilla nd coffee-like roasted malt aroma with woody accent and mild yeasty fruit-like nose with mild nutty nougat in candy with caramel malt essence and the roastiness high in the smell. The feel is very good with smooth vanilla creaminess mild roasted texture and medium body with moderately low sweetness and light woody texture with semi-dry finish and low alcohol influence.

The flavor of malt is dominant with a yeast flavor trailing at first with noticeable vanilla and some sweetness with a mild caramel malt flavor and subtle roasted barley core with more vanilla adding to the base with yeast adding to the complexity as it warms. There is perhaps a little raisin and light spice in the finish with low alcohol flavor. Overall this is a very good stout -pretty well integrated vanilla makes me think it is used to augment the 'oak barrel' as the name implies but smooth flavor and easy to quaff at the 6% strength
