COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

22oz bottle, #62/206 from the 2011 batch, courtesy of my good buddy deftim13. thanks so much, Tim! pours rich and oily, probably the densest Jackie O’s stout i’ve seen, with a razor thin, rusty brown head that leaves oily sheets of lace on the glass. aroma is simply wonderful with heavy notes of burnt brown sugar, toasted malts, cinnamon, nutmeg, and boozy rum backed by prunes, dark chocolate, candied walnuts, and a touch of vanilla icing. flavor is absolutely delicious as well with loads of dark chocolate, iced coffee, black malts, and sweet toffee backed by dense, dark rum, spice cake, chocolate trail mix bars, and rich vanilla. palate is full bodied with light carbonation and a boozy, warming finish of nutty rum cake. overall, a great imperial stout and one of the best i’ve had from these guys.

Lukaduke (2317) - Portland, Maine, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Bottle thanks to Jstax ! Pours a deep viscous burnt umber black color with a finger of khaki foam. On the nose its got some warm spicy rum, vanilla, chocolate and a trace of walnuts. The palate is much of the same with lots of boozy rum notes mingling with rich chocolate, molasses and rustic nuttiness. Nice beer but a little to much rum soaked notes...

DrSilverworm (6818) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 28, 2013
22oz bottle from the Dec. 2012 release, shared with Dan. Black color. Darker brown minimal head. Some dots of lace. Lightly spicy from the rum barrel, little wood notes in the nose. Good big bitter dark chocolate. Roasty malt, bitter coffee. Walnut easy to see, love that. Nice sweet taste, light bite. Alcohol is kind of noticeable if you’re looking for it, but it’s very well-blended. Works great with the flavor.. Just a light warmth in the finish. Freakin’ awesome chewy texture to it. Little dark fruit, very little. Very good stuff. Looking for criticisms... Maybe slightly on the sweet side. That’s it. Super great rum nutty stouty chewy texture to the aftertaste. Awesome.

48FanInCali (739) - California, USA - FEB 22, 2013
22oz bomber. Pitch black pour with a non existent head. Nose of roast, nuts, and booze. Taste is similar with a slight sourness that doesn't really belong. Nice alcohol warmth. Mouthfeel not that enjoyable. Oily and rather dead. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

mcberko (6885) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - JAN 5, 2013
22 oz. bottle, pours a viscous black with a small tan head. Aroma of rum barrels, walnuts, candied sugar and more rum barrels. Flavour is dominated by the rum barrels, with loads of vanilla, candied sugar and no more hint of walnuts. A lot more viscous than the regular impie, dominated by the rum barrels. Finishes very rum-y. Solid stuff, but a bit much.

stumpyiliz (216) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - DEC 28, 2012
Nice full body dark pour. Lingering light tan head. Initial taste comes through balanced, malty, dry palate flavor on the sides of the tongue. Rum comes through at the end with a smooth molasses and dry toffee finish

Tap at JO’s anny party, tough to not homer the crap out of this. its a solid stout lots of flavor a touch sweet for me but nothing cloying the rum flavor imparts a nice touch of vanilla almost in a different way than a bourbon treatement, really solid.
