A Year of Craft Beer, Vol. 24, Old Dominion Oak Barrel Stout

Yarr!  This be a stout that walked the oak plank and was so balanced they had to keel haul it!

Avast me lubbers!  It's a screw top!  Woe and torment to the scallywag who robbed me of this fine booty!  Saved a shilling for this black jewel of a beer!

Black as tar this beer pours with only a tan halyard ring upon her head.  Aromas of vanilla and malt pour from her sails.  Smooth as the backing wind on a calm sea she sails. A roasted malt and smokey oak powderkeg of a bang she has after which she raises her vanilla frock showing you her sweet medium body and then lets you sample her smooth mouthfeel.  Light carbonation lifts your wallet from your slops (pants) and leaves only the mildest of bitterness in your gullet.

Don't spend all your money on shore leave and save some for this black beauty in which I give a 9 out of only because I give out too many 10's and this has a screw top bottle!  Their Chandler must be a Quaker!

Swim with The Fish and imbibe this Grog!
