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.

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

Pours an opaque dark brown almost black like oil with the same type of viscosity and khaki colored head. Rum, oak, vanilla, nuts, chocolate, and candy sweetness on the nose; follow onto the palate. Very complex and full bodied. Finishes with plenty of barrel and chocolate.

Bottle. It poured a black color with a brown head. The aroma was fruity, with raisins, caramel, vanilla, chocolate and rum. The taste was similar to the aroma with more roastiness, caramel, chocolate, rum, wood, fruits and nice warming alcohol. Good stuff.

demmbonz (716) - Erin, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 9, 2015
Bottle to snifter. Thick and oily. Lovely nose of rum barrel aging. Started out fantastic but as it warmed it definitely got a little tart. Shouldnt have waited so long to drink as its definitely started to turn but still pretty good.

beechner224 (993) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - AUG 22, 2015
UPDATED: AUG 23, 2015 Bottle to glass. Black with tan head. Aroma is chocolate with some spiciness. More complex than the base alongside . Taste is a tad tangy, not the chocolate bomb the base is. Its light bodied and the coating on my mouth is a tad off. I dont get the spicey warmth from the rum. Not my favorite.

12.7 oz bottle. Dark brown with tan froth. Nose is molasses, rum, candied nuts and plum. Oily medium body with a tingle and some heat. Taste is walnuts, rum, golden raisin, chocolate and wood. Needs some mellowing to shine.
