Old Dominion Oak Barrel Stout

Cranky 3-year old.  What doesn’t pair well with that?

This stout from Old Dominion pours a brown-black stout color with a slight creamy head.

It is unlike any other stout I’ve ever had.  It’s sweet.  It’s dark.  It’s complex.  The oak barrel taste is there but subtle.  It isn’t overly anything.  Mister said it was crisp and clean.  It smells a bit hoppy but it doesn’t taste so.  What bitterness is there quickly fades away.  There is no hint of coffee or chocolate.

This is one stout I could drink a lot of (but not all at one time).

Cheers!
