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.

Bomber to oversized snifter (shared with the Mrs.; thanks for muling this for me, DrSilverworm!). Batch 13, bottle #229/276. Looks good; pitch black and viscous with foamy mocha head that dissipates into lacing. Smells and tastes good too; chocolate malt with a nice presence of both the walnuts and the dark Belgian candi sugar. Nice on the palate; rich and smooth. This is great beer.

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.

Growler, RBWG 2010. Pours a dark black body with a small fizzy light brown head. The nose is rather thick and intense with roast, molasses, heavy sweetness, and some light alcohol. The flavor is equally intense with roast, moderate sweetness, and some burnt coffee. I like the quality of the sweetness, very different from the usual lactose used. Mouthfeel is thick, a touch sticky from the sugar, but not especially cloying. Soft gentle carbonation. Nice beer.

Bottle Nr 13/192. Looks really good. Beer in the glass deep black, small head. Heavy malty aroma mit notes of liquorice. Starts heavy malty, woody-dry, a bit sweet with a touch of vanilla. Finish again sweeter, but also a bit salty, a bit fruity like berries. Woody-dry aftertaste. Great!

On tap at the Jackie Os 5th Anniversary party. Pours motor-oil black with a pretty good head and a nice bit of light lacing. The aroma blew me away right from the start. There was some really nice roasted nut character along with some nice dark chocolate. There were nice notes of espresso and dark fruit underneath with just a touch of booze. The flavor is equally as nice and quite complex. I was a bit fan of how everything came together and it had a nice kick in the end. Chocolate, dark fruits, and espresso danced and were further highlighted by a beautifully-thick mouthfeel. Just a hint of warmth in the finish. This was my favorite of the Jackie Os brews and Im looking forward to hopefully trying this again. Serving type: on-tap Reviewed on: 12-07-2010

Sampled at dld eve. Black. Fruoty aroma. Cherries? A thinner feel. Nuts are really ligjt. Nthis is so unlike a big stout. So much more fruit. Really good and so different.
