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.

"Had a one year old bottle for my first Jackie Os beer, and damn, was it impressive. HUGE body, almost chewy...just the way I like em. Flavor and aroma aggressively hopped (still) with a ton of roasted malt and walnuts, and a background of coffee and chocolate. Smooth finish. I like the fairly unique twist on a classic impy w/the nuttiness. Id LOVE to try the barreled version of this and might just start being more aggressive in my searching out of Jackie Os."

Thanks Greg for the hook up! Thick black pour, tan head. Aroma has a nutty quality, very reminiscent of walnuts, with chocolate, roast, chocolate. Taste up front is walnuts, dry chocolate and roast, some caramel sweetness with a dry finish. Unique and delicious!

Bottle @ Seabass going away party, Jan15th 11. Courtesy of Solan. noire, fin col beige. Chocolat, malt avec fin allant sur des notes de vanille. Au palais, la bire conserve un excellent got de caf, vanille, grains et de chocolat laissant une fine amertume au fini. On peut y noter les noix avec en arrire un peu de sucre candi. Un peu du par rapport celle que javais pu goter avant.

Bottle during the RBWG Lobby Share. Pours a clear brown with small beige head that diminishes to nothing. The aroma is licorice and wood. Medium mouth with dark chocolate, rich malt, light booze, lingering dryness, very good.

Draft at Jackie Os. Pours dark brown with a medium sized thick beige head. The aroma is big roasted malts, noticeable black walnuts, chocolate, dark candi sugar and a touch of char. The flavor is more big roasted malts, chocolate, char, dark sugar and caramel. The black walnuts add a special component to the beer. The mouthfeel is another aspect that, for me, makes this a standout beer. Thick and creamy, this begs to be poured into a snifter and slowly sipped on cooler fall and winter evenings. This has not failed to satisfy, whether it is from a bottle or on draft.

Bomber. Pours a totally black color with a thick large brown head. The aroma is caramel corn, vanilla, sugars. The flavor is a rich combination of nutty, some butter, roasted malts, sweet brown sugar, sour cherries, the nutty sweet flavor dominates. An interesting brew, the Belgian spirit shows. Nice.

Pours inky dark void with mocha head. The aroma is mostly roasty malts, rich coffee goodness, burnt malts, black strap molasses and dark chocolate. The taste is smooth rich and roasty. I get dark chocolate, dark roasted malts, burnt malts and sweet yet singed black strap molasses. Just below those notes lurks the likes of dark roasted coffee, some mild oak notes and a thin river of sweet rum. Lovely

Bottle via a trade. Pours really thick with a minimal fleeting head. That said the body coats glass like iodine. Aroma is nutty, coffee, vanilla and licorice. Decently boozy. Flavors are boozy with notes of ash, tobacco, roast and nuts. Oily mouthfeel, light bubbles and very thick. Just a bit dull for what I was expecting. Flavors didnt jump out.
