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.

Thanks goes to BuckEyeNation for this. Bottled 07/19/06

Pours a nice black color, nice carbonation, nice fizzy tan head, nice little oil spills and lacing follow. The nose is of slightly roasted sweet malts, lots of vanilla, and some coffee/caramel. The taste is sweet, vanilla, and a nice touch of coffee/caramel. This stout is quite different to me than other's I've had so far, sweeter, and more vanilla in there. Medium body. Very drinkable, highly recommended.

Thanks wasatch for this one; small capped bottle poured into a snifter. Bottled September 2007.

It is a very dark brew, although reddish brown highlights are seen around the edges. The voluminous head is coffee and milk colored, dissipating a bit too quickly.
Aroma is mostly roasted malts, with hints of oak and vanilla, but not very noticeable.
Medium bodied, shows the same tastes, although here the vanilla comes (slightly) more to the front.
An interesting stout, worthwhile.

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!
