look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Thanks to csmiley for the bottle. Very generous of you, dood.

Appearance: It's very dark brown in color. There's no light getting through so far as I can tell. Very close to black in appearance. Carbonation is off the chain. The head is tan and easily four fingers deep. It was very slow to dissipate and left thick sheets of lace on the glass. Ordinarily, I'm a fan of nice big heads, but it's a little annoying here. Took me a few minutes to get the beer into a glass.

Smell: Primarily, it's a nice mix of chocolate and roasted malts. The roasted malts smell a little stronger. It smells a little sweet. Coffee is noted, but is a secondary scent. Overall, it's pretty straight forward. I had pretty high expectations and am a little let down. I'm not picking up any vanilla or oak-like qualities at all. It's above average, but not as good as I had hoped.

Taste: The flavor profile is consistent with the nose in most respects. It does have a nice malty flavor. Roasted malts are clearly the strongest flavor here. Chocolate malts are noted. It has a bit of a bitter chocolate flavor, but isn't very sweet. Roasted coffee is faint and doesn't add a great deal. It's a little too buried. There is a decent wood or oak-like flavor that gives it a slight bump. But, it still hovers just above average. Carbonation is too high and is really distracting. No alcohol is noted. Finishes with a bitter chocolate flavor.

Mouthfeel/Drinkability: It's on the lighter side of medium bodied. Carbonation is too active and really prevents it from being smooth at all. Way too distracting. Drinkability is just above average. It's got an okay flavor, but doesn't really distinguish itself in any way.

I had high hopes for Oak Barrel Stout, but am ultimately disappointed. It's definitely not a bad beer, but it has some glaring flaws. The carbonation is the biggest. The lack of any standout in flavor is the second. Overall, it's above average, but would need some work to reach the next level. It's worth a try, but I wouldn't seek it out again.

At the Old Dominion Brewery located in Terminal A of Dulles and the second beer I am trying is the Oak Barrel Stout. The color poured deep dark rich amber with ecru colored head. The aroma is roasty with good malt balance. The flavor of this beer is complex the peat and vanilla are very apparent. There definitely smokey undertones….and flashes of anise/black licorice. The body is decent….right on the borderline of being too watery for me. The mouthfeel is good…..for me it would be tough to have more than two or three at a sitting.

Bottles on 03/06/09

Light tan head about a finger and a half forms then quickly fades. Beer is the color of dark rot beer, perhaps even darker.

Aroma is of dark roasted malt, some smoke

Flavor is decidedly of charcoal, some dark roast coffee and then some real wood at the end. Finishes quite dry. Not getting much vanilla, perhaps melding with the wood a little.

Mouth feel & body are too light for the style in my mind and take away from the beer a bit. The charcoal flavor and mouth feel almost come across as powdery in your mouth.

Not among the best stouts I've had and a bit disappointing for an oak aged vanilla stout.

The brew is dark brown, almost black, a high tan head, medium lacing and curtains.

Smelling of sweet chocolate, dates and figs.

More chocolate, milk chocolate on chocolate bread, oak chips, some lemon peel.

Medium carbonation, a bit flat, medium body.

Wonder if the oak really improved this one.

Dark brown color, with a small tan head. Rich malt aroma, with hints of fudge, coffee and chocolate (brownies), light aromatic hops, hints of vanilla and a light hint of oak. Pretty subtle and gentle overall, with a roasted coffee, vanilla bean, chocolate, hops and a light hint of toasted oak. Not as good as I was expecting.

Thanks to WVBeergeek for this sample.
Aroma shows a nice mix of roasty malt with just a touch of vanilla (that increases as it warms) and it addds a nice coffee quality (Amaretto).
Poured with virtually no head, instead it showed a fizzy scattered top that left immediately. Dark brown to black.
Interesting mix of full rich flavor qualities, yet somehow thin feeling. Nonetheless, taste is bold, especially initially. The boldness wavers middle to finish, but the taste aspects (rich roast-touch of chocolate) stay throughout. Bitterness increases as it warms which is alright as it blends with the dryness. A touch of vanilla at the end.
Feel is somehow not quite right. Lacks softness and fluffiness from carbonation and as noted above too thin.
I enjoyed the opportunity to sample something different. Low alcohol and thinness make this an almost easy drinking stout.

My friend had a party this last weekend and got an entire keg of this stuff and left it at my house with plenty of beer left. Needless to say, this has been a great beer week!

A: Nearly pitch black with ever the slightest ruby notes when held up to the light. Nice fluffy carbonation and huge head (but some of that may just be the fact that it is being poured from a keg).

S: Bits of oak, chocolate notes, and tons of vanilla.

T: Nice, medium-bodied, chocolate and vanilla bean taste, with a hint of bitterness on the finish. Not too complex, but satisfying nonetheless.

M: No alcohol detected, the sweetness is more so than Guinness Draught, which I appreciate, and the creamy quality is quite enjoyable.

D: I have a lot of affection for this beer. Back two years ago when Dominion had their brewpub here in Northern Virginia (Ashburn) and before they were bought by Busch, I used to go all the time and order this one. The Oak Barrel Stout they served there on draft is a completely different beer than the bottled version. I once asked why that was and the guy told me that in the draft version, they used coffee beans, whereas the bottle one contains vanilla beans. They did this as a preservative. The coffee bean version on draft was easily an A- brew.

Before my friend finally picked up the keg to send it back, I poured another hit of this stuff into a growler. As a matter of fact, I poured it into my old Old Dominion Brewing Company growler from a very fine Brewpub that is no longer in existence...sad.

My last reviewed beer of a trip to Kclingers. Served in a bottle chilled and sampled in a pint glass.
The beer exhibits an offwhite head that is rather small and fades rather quickly to an edge layer. The color is pitch black with no light getting through the glass.
Aroma is light chocolate and some hints of sweet brown sugar and vanilla. First sip reveals a fairly thick beer with very mild carbonation. Flavro is mostly roasted malt hits mixed with mild sweet vanilla and some biting coffee on the finish. No real hint of alcohol or oak that I can detect. A very tasty beer that I am glad I finally procured. Some piney hop notes actually show up on a burp or two. Nice one!

On-tap at Flying Saucer served in a standard pint-glass an almost opaque black with some ruby highlights when held to light. The aroma is a slight amount of oak and roasted malts. The taste is a nice smooth oaked roasted malts with hints of cocoa and fresh ground coffee. The beer is quite light and smooth with decent carbonation, the lightness making the oakiness all that more noticeable. This is certainly an enjoyable beer.

Black, every shade of black, in other words it is dark. There was no light penetration at any point. The head color was brunette and about a half finger in height. Head retention was fair; it faded a little too quickly to a fizzy cap that thinned out from there. There wasn’t much subsequent lacing, just a few spots of foam that tried in vein to cling to the glass. Still, this is a very good-looking beer. The first whiff of the nose was all vanilla; I was quite taken aback! It was a little much for me. However, the second sniff allowed for some roasty qualities to penetrate. At the back were a suggestion of wood and some hints of chocolate-milk with espresso. The potency isn’t that great but it is plenty strong enough to get the point across. I like the bouquet, after the first smell it became very well rounded. Lovely actually, inviting. The palate is every bit as pleasant as the nose lead on, and that is all I can ask for. The roasty qualities are the focal point, as expected for a stout. Flavors included coffee beans, fresh espresso with a dash of milk and a side of dark chocolate. Tasty. The vanilla is at home in the middle and lingers to the finish were it is teamed up with a distant note of wood. By the aftertaste the roast has reestablished itself. The astringency works perfectly with a sharp hops bite. This is a very good stout, the layers of flavors is a real treat. I love the fact the abv is just above 5%, I’d be happy to session with this any day. The palate has no flaws but no one striking aspect that really elevates this beer. Don’t misunderstand this statement, as this is a kick-ass stout. Medium/medium-light in body, the carbonation is rather lively which kind of tricks my tongue into thinking this is a bigger beer than it is. I do think a maltier backbone would really help this beer as the mouthfeel, while pleasant, is a bit thin. I found this stout to be very drinkable and very likable. If I ever see this beer again I will by at least a six-pack. This beer is a treat to drink. Thanks meathookjones for the 12-ounces of yummy beer!

Poured from a 12 ounce bottle into a BrewDog cervoise glass. Bottled on (what looks like) 5 April 2011.

A: Tight, creamy, off-white/tan head. The beer is incredibly dark, and completely opaque. I feel comfortable calling it black; it's close enough to not make a difference. Head has good retention and leaves behind a tantalising lace.

S: Molasses. Touch of alcohol? Fruity coffee.

T/M: The mouthfeel is thin and quite watery; the taste is equally limp. Sweetish malts that merely hint at barrel ageing and a touch of creaminess that fades quickly are the only good things about this beer. The aftertaste is acceptable, if quite far from dry, with only a slight dark chocolate bitterness. Incredibly disappointing.

O: Not a good stout; at least this bottle wasn't. Barely a mediocre beer. I finished it, but I wouldn't have really cared if it disappeared. Drinkable, but why would you? Mouthfeel and a general weakness of character ruins any chance at more than a passable brew. Absolutely not recommended, though you could do much worse...I won't be having another.

I got to try several Old Dominion beers while visiting the Green Leaf Tap in Williamsburg.

Served in a standard pint, the beer is jet black with a dense brown head. Good lacing.

Nose is a bit lighter than expected. Roasty malts with brown sugar and marshmallows.

Love that the beer was served at the correct temp. It is sweet with brown sugar, slightly charred malts, coco and something that reminds me of a milky way bar. There is a nice woody quality late in the aftertaste. Tasty!

The mouth is extremely silky, but thins out a bit in the end. It is easy to session. I'm glad I had a chance to try this one. Well done!

Dark brown to black with a nice creamy brown head with a lasting ring and spotty lace. Complex cocoa, vanilla, and oak aromas and flovors. Cocoa is big on the nose with a bit more vanilla in the flavor . Medium-full bodied with a smooth roasty and vanilla finish.

I prefer the bottled version better. The draft version at the OD Brewpub has too much bourbon character.

Served on tap at the Arena Bar and Grill. Arrived in a nonic pint glass, this stout appears a deep dark brown color with about two fingers of creamy, lingering tan foam. Not much lacing to speak of here. The aroma and flavor are of rich roasted grains, both milk and bittersweet chocolate, oak chips, vanilla, mildly sour tannins, and a touch of dark fruit. Wonderfully smooth drinking and creamy with medium carbonation. A really nice and flavorful lower alcohol stout.

Very dark, near-black brown color under a solid brown head. Bold, sweet malty aroma...brown sugar, vanilla, chocolate, and cake-batter. Semi-sweet chocolate chip and vanilla flavors. Yummy. Not the most complex stout in the world and actually kind of thin in the middle...but there are some tasty flavors in there. It's kind of confusing. Slightly watery, but flavorful. Medium bodied, goes down easy enough. I'll get it again, but I feel like with a couple tweaks, it could be great.

A deep dark brown nearing black liquid. No light penetrates any crevice of this one. Thick tan head with great retention, with sticky lacing.

Big vanilla, mocha, oak, black cherry, and roasty malt in the nose.

Rich creamy mouthfeel, about as close to a milkshake withough ice cream as you can get.

A coffee component comes into play in the taste. Like a latte, heavy cream, choclate covered cherry, good wood integration, and a finish of at least 45 seconds. Drinkable as hell if not a tad to sweet.

12oz bottle into a Duvel chalice. Thanks to JDV for the freebie on an in-town swap!

The pour is translucent, but once the glass gets filled, this stout appears a nearly-opaque seal brown hue. Head is short-lived and mocha in color, and retreats to a small wisp of bubbles at the center surrounded by a ring of foam. Very heavy vanilla scent; those vanilla beans in the secondary did their job well! However, the sweetness nearly overpowers the oak and chocolate malts, as well as any trace of hops. Aroma improves as the beer warms, letting in hints of smoke and ash.

I don't really pick up much at first, but after my palate adjusts, I taste roasted chocolate malts, some caramel sweetness, and a kiss of oak on the back of the palate. Earthy hops chime in for a quick "hello", but not much else lingers in the aftertaste. Body is a bit over-carbonated and zesty for a stout (more porter-like in its mouthfeel) with a crisp medium body that borders on creamy. Overall, I found this to be a decent stout, but it doesn't quite live up to its "barrel-aged" stature.

Black body, lone highlight across the bottom of the glass. Smallish tan head runs from dark to light, and does a fine Rice Krispies impression. Good lacing shows quickly.

Nose has vanilla, wood, a bit of coffee and chocolate, but the whole thing is a bit less impressive than I had anticipated after having sampled the brewpub edition years ago.

Nice roasted notes in the taste, coffee and chocolate a little more noticeable, but not huge, and the "extras" (the vanilla and the oak chips) are more blended than in the nose.

Good mouthfeel, not thick but enough for a bit of substance. A stout you can have a couple of in a session.

A good attempt at bringing an affordable version of their brewpub only classic to a wider audience. It's not as good as the original version, but not bad either. Not bad at all.

Pours a nice looking black colour, with a dark tan coloured head of about a finger. Left a bit of lace and had nice retention. The aroma was very nice. Woody, oaky, with a touch of bourbon, with plenty roasted malts and touches of dark cocoa. The taste was pretty average. Not too much of the oak comes through at all, and it's mainly just a roasty, uninteresting stout. The feel is also average, with a light, somewhat watery feel to it.

Wonderful nose, but the bulk of it is nothing too special.

This was given to me by a fellow BA. Pours a very dark brown color with a very small tan head that doesn't leave any lacing on the glass. The aroma is very strong of vanilla and roasted malts and some alcohol. Very interesting. The flavor is of floral hops and slight vanilla with some coffee and chocolate. The body is slightly more thin than I expected it to be. Slightly oily, but enjoyable.

From notes .On tap. Black/brown pour, tan head with small amounts sticking to the glass. Barrel dominates the aromas with some roast malt and cocoa. Taste is a good blend of all of these. Vanilla oak blended with some chocolate and roast malt. Finish with a twinge of coffee and vanilla. A little thinner than one would like for a stout. Nothing mindblowing, but very good for a "regular" stout.

I finally get to try OLD DO' Oak Barrel Stout in the bottle. I tried this back in me pre-BA days at the Flying Pig. It was quite delicious. Well, the label has a decent bit of info about the popularity of this brew at the brewpub. Born on date 23 April 2004. ABV 5.2%.

OBS pours out of the 12 oz. browner with dark, pitch violet brown color that lets the teeniest bit of light hazing thru. It's practically black with a thin coating of khaki cake head. Bumped up my appearance due to the gorgeous lattice lace patterns in me pint.

Tons of dessert like scents flow freely with every sniff. First, vanilla beans that are used in the brewing come through. Then coffee with sugar and cream aromas. Chocolate cake with icing notes grace the nose.

First swigs are of chocolate latte flavors. Then, the creamy stout flavor stands up. Buttery flavor and feel. Baker's chocolate and Kaluha.

Standard stout feel. Not the thickest knife 'n fork feel, but chewy. Feels almost nitro tapped.

Easy drinkability, especially with a reasonable 5.2% ABV and chewy but swiggable feel. I would have another if you offered!

Last swigs: The nose is top notch. This is liquid dessert. I am surprised that this isn't in the top 50, but it has recently been released. Let's see how this grows in popularity. A few swirls gives rise to the head instantly. This is a wickedly good brew that continues to taste sweet to the end! This is one of my favorite beers I have had in a long time. I read an article in Ale Street News that 7 out 10 local drinkers at the OLD DO' Pub prefered this from the bottle than the draught. Picked it up for $35 a case.

Beer is good. Happy barrel beering.

Bottle from Market Street Wineshop downtown, poured into a traditional American pint glass. You can get six packs of these for $6.99 at most megamarts in town, so it's a shame I haven't tried it 'til now.

Appearance: A great, fine-bubbled, creamy-looking coffee-colored head on a deep brown-bodied beer. Average retention, and pretty nice splotchy lacing.

Aroma: Very nice. Vanilla French toast, not burned but getting close, with lots of other deeply toasted malts, all wrapped up in a very faint bourbon blanket with a big oaky woody presence that blends well with the toasty maltiness.

Taste: A little dryer than you'd expect from the nose. Faint dark fruits, lots of woody notes, light bitter chocolate and grassy, faintly-citrusy half-roast coffee, some slightly less roasted malts, and a faint vanilla-bourbon one two. No other alcohol notes detected.

Mouthfeel: Fine-to-medium bubbled, medium-to-full bodied, not thick or thin, and a little uneven but still by and large creamy and milky.

Drinkability: A really solid stout, and locally brewed as well. A good go-to beer, refreshing and inexpensive - recommended.
