Old Dominion Brewing Co. Oak Barrel Stout (6%)

Oak Barrel StoutStout aged in oak barrels.
Should be good, right?
Wrong.
This is thin and watery and a little bit insipid.
The aroma is a boring caramel thing, weak and bland, and taking a mouthful all you find is a bit of toffee and a few biscuit crumbs.
There’s some hedgerow greenery from the hops and the slightest, most apologetic aside from the barrel ageing.
You find a little damp woodiness, but it appears to be off in the distance, it’s so feint as to be almost inconsequential.
No, this is a terrible excuse for a beer.
