COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oil of Aphrodite is an American double stout with an astounding texture. Multiple different chocolate and caramel malts from all over the world give this viscous brew a colossal character. Belgian candied syrup and locally harvested black walnuts build upon the fortified character, boldly standing up to its voluptuous body. After spending two months aging in stainless steel, the oil was placed into a rum barrel. The oil rested in the rum barrel for an additional 8 months, creating an amazing brew worthy of goddesses and gods alike. A beer passionately created to transcend your glass and provide a truly memorable experience.

Pours dark thick oil with even less of a head than the regular. The aroma is unbelievable - butter rum so perfectly sweet on the palate with light earthy nut notes. The flavor of the rum is light sweet brown sugary booze, a lot less hotter than on top 6 months ago when it was fresh. The nutty malt notes blended with rum taste great, the Belgian candi sugar gets lost here from the rum notes, but that’s okay. The body is right on as well, not too thick at all, balanced just right.

At the Kernel. Big thanks to Brad from JackieOs for bringing a bottle over and a very big thanks to the Kernel crew for sharing and saving me some! Opaque dark brown beer, little tan head. Rich dark malt. A little coffee and a trace of vanilla. Lovely rum and raisin ice cream with rich dark rum and a perfect amount of peppery spice. A little wood. Finishes semi dry. A fantastic rum barrel beer!

22 oz. bottle shared by bsuedekum- thanks again, Blake! 2011 bottle #171/206. Pours a deep, dark opaque brown with a tiny dark tan ring. Aroma of vanilla, butterscotch, milk chocolate, rum, oak, and cream. Flavor of vanilla, toffee, chocolate, rum, oak, roasted malts, cream, and milk sugar. Medium-bodied, with a smooth, sweet, creamy mouthfeel and low carbonation. Really nice and smooth. Goes down too easy.

Ughsmash (7092) - Pewaukee, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 2, 2012
2011 bomber, #31/192. Poured inky black with an almost equally dark brown head. The aroma picked up a lovely bouquet of dark malts, with dark chocolate, espresso, rum, and dark fruits, with vanilla and peppery accents.. a little metallic barrel around there too.. Loved it! The flavor found near-burnt dark chocolates, raisins, and vinous notes at the core, with peppery rum, charred oak, and walnuts laced throughout.. more sour and delightfully dry on the very long finish. Heavy-bodied with low carbonation on the palate.. the rum, rich malts, and barrel worked great together!

Bottle from beace. Cool label. Nice pour, black in color, ok head. Nice nose as well, I picked up lots of vanilla, roasted malts. Taste is different from the nose though. Its a creamy smooth well balanced impy stout. Roasted malts, nuts, dark chocolate and dark fruits. The alcohol is well hidden. Very drinkable. Overall: Nice Stout. Thanks Brad!

50belair (2145) - Florida, USA - OCT 9, 2011
Bottle shared at the Coffee District. Dark brown/black pour with faint light brown head. Sweet/fruity rum aromas. Like all Jackie O’s stouts, the body is just a little thin and watery for my taste. I found it to be muddled (one of the group has had this before and believes there might be an infection) with rum, nutty/earthy notes and burnt roasted malt flavors....

Tmoney99 (10412) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 24, 2011
Draft sample at JO’s. Poured a black color with a small fizzy brown head that diminished slowly with fair lacing. Moderate to heavy roasted dark nuts, rum, woody and alcohol aroma. Heavy bittersweet roasted nutty and rum flavor with a heavy bittersweet and small alcohol bite finish of long duration. Full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. This is a standout beer.

Bottle 7/206, thanks Brandon. Pours black, with a brown head. Aroma is rum, molasses, nuts, roasted malt, and dark fruit. Flavor is rum, roasted malt, alcohol, nuts, vanilla, and dark fruit. Medium body, with a fairly long finish. Not as sweet as the aroma makes you think it will be.
