COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oil of Aphrodite is an American double stout brewed with locally harvested black walnuts and Belgian candy syrup. English, German, American, and Belgian malts are accompanied by pacific northwest hops, creating a sweet and rich springboard for deep nuttiness. Lay this beer down for a while and share with friends and loved ones. After all, beer should be enjoyed and remembered; this is why quality and character are at the heart of every beer we produce.

Advocate_Ames (558) - Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 26, 2016
Pours a deep black with a sticky and creamy foam head, nicely done. Aroma is sweet, some roast, defined nut presence, a touch of wood, and there is a muted dark fruit scent. Tasting I got a good bit of roasted flavors, booze, walnut taste, some semi sweet syrup notes, noticeable bitterness, wood, and an anise or licorice flavor. Overall this had a good body, nice finish, easy on the palate, but I did not care for the minor licorice like flavor. I would recommend this to any stout lover, a good brew.

A neat stout with a cool idea of using walnuts. Works out pretty well as a stout variation. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
