Oil of Aphrodite is an American double stout with an astounding texture. Multiple different chocolate and caramel malts from all over the world give this viscous brew a colossal character. Belgian candied syrup and locally harvested black walnuts build upon the fortified character, boldly standing up to its voluptuous body. After spending two months aging in stainless steel, the oil was placed into a rum barrel. The oil rested in the rum barrel for an additional 8 months, creating an amazing brew worthy of goddesses and gods alike. A beer passionately created to transcend your glass and provide a truly memorable experience.

12.7 oz. bottle supplied by StFun -- many thanks! Served at 52 F and opened on a particularly breezy partially sunny afternoon. May or may not have been blasting Chemical Brothers 1997 album, "Dig Your Own Hole" on a Sony surround, as I decadently sipped the sooty liquid from a just-dried snifter. But If I was, you can bet your cigarette and chewing gum money that I only managed to put my dancing shoes on for "Piku". Honestly: And I thought Id be deliriously lost in, "Lost in a K-Hole" 23 seconds into the song. That bass, dude. Fuck. But I was down for the count 17.5 seconds before "Setting Sun" arrived on the speakers. It was unquestionably a sad moment in Radarsocks groovy history.Just, no.

Oh, yeah...gotta rate this unmovable object."Fear shrouds, but I, in your dreary, upset eyes, linger. I linger like a wounded, unfriendly beast come to sexily destroy you while you sleep like an opium drugged adolescent ready for dreams to occur in your head about winning the approval of Midwestern coaches, seducing pretty brides,and making a good living in a good life. I am still here -- and you should know that."
One of my favorite lines. Do you know who it possibly could be? Guess. If youre right, Ill give you a beer.If youre local, Ill buy you one from a bar I haunt.
Rawr. RAwr. RAWr. RAWR.
Brocoli. BRocoli. BROcoli. BROColi. BRCOCOli. BROCOLi. BROCOI. (I like brocoli. If you dont like it, you must be a fucking communist.)

To oversized snifter, it pours a purplish-tinted dark brown/black combination, wityh which a light khaki-ringed head barely 1 fingernail in length stood.

Aromas of smoked butterscotch, floral hops/flowers, salted caramel (unexpectedly explosive on the nose), dried dates, walnut butter,blue agave syrup, and some pipe tobacco.
Tastes much the same with the addition of chocolate almond milk, roasted soybeans, coffee syrup, and sage.
Rum barrel oak, vague cooking spices, straw, and yeast experienced by swallow.
Alcohol showed no mercy; very flavorful beer but its strength shot out of the dugout right from the get go.
Nice clean finish, though. The bitterness (from the nuts and the hops) definitely stays a while, but the chocolate and rum virtually disappear upon swallowing the beverage down your throat. <Id like to give a shout out to my pal, Sandy Plunkett, whom had done the artwork for this bottle. Wonderfuly talented man. Grew up with his wisdom.

Abv on my bottle reads 11.5, pours like used motor oil, very dark and thick, nice dark brown head. Aroma is very roasty, leather, chocolate and barrel hints. Taste starts sweet with chocolate and rum notes, goes a bit roasty and bitter and leaves a lingering taste of anise and walnuts. mouthfeel is very full. Definitely would pick this up again.

12.7 ounce bottle, label says 2014 vintage. Served in a DFH snifter, the beer pours dark brown/black with about a quarter inch tan head that didnt stay around long. Theres a decent amount of lacing. The aroma is nice and sweet, the brew smells like rum, molasses, nuts, dark fruit, burnt wood and vanilla. Taste is similar to the aroma, it tastes like rum, burnt/charred malt, walnuts/nuttiness, molasses, bittersweet chocolate, vanilla, dark fruit, and some roastiness. Mouthfeel/body is medium, its a bit coating and smooth with moderate carbonation. I think this is a pretty good double stout, Jackie Os has done a great job with this one! Definitely worth picking up! $11.99 a bottle.
