Draft at GABF. Pours deep black with some brown at the edge. Brown head. Nose is very chocolatey, some soft nutty notes, molasses and caramel. Sweet and fruity behind the chocolate. Really quite clean. On tasting, big beer, plenty of body, chocolate and dark fruit. Moderately sweet but balanced by a drying roast. Pretty solid overall.

Huge thanks to Ryan011235 on BA for hooking up this tick. Pours black and rather thick with a thick tan head good lacing. Serious viscosity. The aroma is nice and rich. Big roast and nuttiness, anise, and hops. The flavor is also rich. Big intense coffee and roast, dark chocolate, walnuts, molasses, and piney hops. Extremely full and heavy on the mouthfeel with lower carbonation. A little too heavy for my tastes, as well as the tastes of most others who shared this. Intense beer, and a pretty good one. Not all hype.

22oz bottle in a tulip. Pours black with a beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and light coffee, some nuttiness, dough, and light bitterness. Flavor the same. Thicker texture. A good beer.

pantanap (3340) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 4, 2010
Oil of Aphrodite... Pours a thick viscous dark blackish brown pour with a thin tan head... Aroma of thick charred chocolate and dark fruits to a lesser extent...Thick and oily with smoky and charred roasted malt. Got somewhat of a charred astringent finish. Great body and mouthfeel but could have used a bit more sweetness and less bitterness in the finish. 7/5/7/4/15

22 ounce bottle that pours midnight black with very thin tan head. Aromas of roasted coffee, choclate, nuts, and vanilla. Flavors of coffee and choclate at first,, as beer warms, more of the walnut flavors come through. Really good beer.

22 oz bottle. Almost black with a faint tan haze; a stiff pour yields a substantial head. Nose is candied walnuts, rich chocolate and coffee bean; almost smoky. Quite thick, and dare i say oily, with buzzy carb. Taste is very roasty, unsweetened chocolate, with the bitter grapefruit hops emerging. The walnuts soften the other flavors and lend to a pleasant nutty finish.
