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.

Glouglouburp (6103) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - APR 13, 2012
In short: A rich nutty black cake in a bottle. Excellent
How: Bottle 22oz, /#106/192. Consumed when approximately one year of age. Bottle sent to me by alexsdad06, thanks a lot Brad
The look: Black body topped by a very small tan head
In long: Nose is richly malted, medium roast, baked walnuts. Taste is viscous dark malts, creamy black cake, oily walnuts, Queen Elizabeth cake, wood sensation, some black chocolate. Im sure the beer is very sweet but the sweetness sensation is only medium. Not alcohol presence whatsoever. Very nourishing, like drinking a rich dessert. Body is as thick as they come and the smooth-medium carbonation is perfectly levelled for that type of beer. This is my first wow! beer from Jackie-Os. A totally unexpected jewel that I had forgotten in the back of my cellar, Ive got so much beer stacked everywhere that I have skeletons under the couch because my closet is full of beer.

Thanks to someone for sharing this beer. I think it may have been thirdeye11. The beer pours a black color with a tan head. The aroma is very strong. I get a lot of walnuts as well as a lot of dark chocolate. Very nice. The flavor is just as good and a little bit more complex. I get a lot of chocolate and coffee as well as some oak and molasses notes. Very easy to drink for a beer that is 10 percent alcohol. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Outstanding.

Pailhead (6032) - Plymouth, Michigan, USA - FEB 4, 2015
Bottle: The aroma consists of moderate-heavy molasses, moderate chocolate, light caramel, nuts (though Im not sure I can really pinpoint them as walnuts), vanilla, and faint roast. It pours a dark brown with no transparency and a one finger tan head that eventually settles to a thick film outlined by a thicker ring. There is a decent amount of thick webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with moderate-heavy molasses and just a tad bit lighter chocolate. There is also some light caramel in the middle. The finish has light nuttiness, roast, vanilla, and dark fruits/plum. Its medium-full bodied with light-moderate carbonation. Overall, its good, but Im realizing that Im generally liking molasses heavy Imperial Stouts less and less.

Growler sample shared by some of the other C-Bus bastardos at DLD 2010. Black pour with a thin tan head. Nose of chocolate and nuts with some dark fruit as well. Nutty and malty flavor with a big chocolate and roast finish. Wasnt sure about the walnuts, but the dimension they add to this beer really makes it stand out amongst others in the category.

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.

riversideAK (5831) - Shoreline, Washington, USA - JUL 28, 2010
Nose is super roasty with noticeable dark sugary sweetness, roasted nutty notes, dark sweet fruit as well. Pours jet black, viscous, khaki short lived head. The flavor in this one is full of roast, a ton of patent malts show through as well as sugary sweetness that balances the roast, roasted nutty notes, dark fruit as well. Lingering charred roast, almost acrid, but the candi sugar balances out well. Body is full and it covers up 10% very well.
