Draft sample at Jackie Oís 6th Anniversary. Pours dark brown to black in color with a medium sized creamy tan head. The aroma had deep roasted malts, black walnuts, chocolate and earth. The flavor has the big flavor you would expect from a stronger version of an already solid beer; big roasted malts, chocolate, roasted nuts, earthy, the alcohol remains less than whatever the abv really is. Always a treat.

TheAlum (5672) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - APR 29, 2012
Bottle shared at Dark Lord Day 2012 (Munster, IN). Pours a rich opaque thick black pour, awesome thickness with a tart cherry nose, touches of oak, spirit, vanilla. Some oak, bourbon, cocoa, and roasty elements. Initial is medium bodied with cocoa, thick toffee, gentle vanilla barrel. A touch of tartness, some earthy nutty elements with some soil, mellow sweetness, nutty toast. Some oak, cocoa, and toffee. Middle is sweeter, toffee and cocoa, rich spirit, touches oak, really inviting. Oak, spirit, sticky malts and roast. Lovely.

(sampled at Dakís). Pours a dark brown color with a thin tan head. Aroma is coffee, cocoa and roast. Taste is sweet and seems a bit oxidized. Full bodied. Dry and bitter finish. Not a huge fan of this. Clearly, Iím in the minority.

Courtesy of Dak. Pours deep mahogany with tan head. The aroma is full of rich molasses, coffee, toffee and dark roasted maltiness. The taste comes across rather smooth and rich as the dark roasted coffee notes and the dark roasted maltiness blend and mingle with sweet molasses, toffee and chocolate. All of those notes seemed to be thinly rimmed by a semi tart almost malt astringency. Yummy stuff.

Bottle shared by Dak @ Woodshed 1.0! Definitely a step up from the regular version. Lots of rich dark roasted coffee, cocoa, walnut, and vanilla finding their way to both the flavor and aroma. More intense, condensed, and compacted attributes. Heavier, richer, more accentuated...yum!

Dark brown, no real head. I can smell walnuts, chocolate, metallic notes, espresso. Flavor is lightly tart, cocoa, nuts, molasses. Pretty damn good.

I would like to preamble that I take reviewing on this site very seriously. After more than 900 reviews, Iíve never come across a beer that has been a perfect 5.0. That changed this Saturday. 4 oz. from a sampler glass. 5.0 A: Black as black gets. Super creamy dark brown head that somehow retains well. Amazing given what the brew is. 5.0 S: This is Oil of Aphrodite, only like drinking it twice at the same time. Incredibly complex, but more intense. Strong, but still supple roastiness. Overload of chocolate with emphasis on milk chocolate. Sweet caramel and molasses. Nuttiness from the black walnuts galore. Moderate hints of coffee. Despite the over the top ABV on this, the booze is well contained and is seemingly half of what it is. 5.0 T: The concepts of the nose are in the taste as well. This is Oil, but jammed with twice the flavor. All of the same flavors are found. Thereís a few things that I would like to add though. This is rich in flavor as you can get, but the beer never gets cloying, never gets too roasty, never gets too much of anything. Itís incredibly well balanced while being complex as possible. Again, the alcohol picked up is just a shadow of the actual ABV. 5.0 M: Super thick without being at all cloying or overly chewy. Good moderate carbonation. Perhaps the creamiest brew Iíve ever had. Smooth as it gets. 5.0 D: I feel sorry for anyone who will never get to try this and sorry for myself for only getting one extra pour. This is, as far as I can tell, the pinnacle of beer. I urge everyone to come out to a future release if this will be on tap. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 12-05-2011 01:17:48

JaBier (4842) - Capital City, Ohio, USA - DEC 13, 2011
Sample at Jackie Oís 6th Anniversary Extravaganza on 12/3/11. Pitch black pour with a medium brown chocolate milk head. Aroma is a bit strange, consisiting of chocolate, walnuts, butter and cream cheese. Flavor is chocolate, walnuts, and some roastiness. Very full and abundant. As expected, it tastes like a more concentrated version of Oil of Aphrodiate and itís truly amazing.

Beerman6686 (4289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2011
This poured an almost pitch black color with basically no head. Aroma was lots of dark roast and chocolate, with light belgian notes, and some booze. Flavor is much better in this one than the other one as it appears the freezing has cut down the sweetness and just left a spicey chocolatey booze stout. Decent.
