COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Oil of Aphrodite is an American double stout brewed with locally harvested black walnuts and Belgian candied syrup. English, German, American, and Belgian malts are accompanied by Pacific Northwest hops, creating a sweet and rich springboard for deep nuttiness.

This stout was aged in bourbon barrels for 8 to 12 months, creating an amazing brew worthy of goddesses and gods alike. A considerable amount of carefully roasted coffee beans were added to awaken one’s senses. A beer passionately created to transcend your glass and provide a truly memorable experience.

Thanks to Zach for this treat! Cédrick et moi sommes subjugués par cette pellicule d’huile de noix qui adhère à notre verre. Même en y passant mon doigt, mes empreintes digitales y demeurent parfaitement imprégnées, comme moulées. Arômes dominées par la noix alors que s’y greffent des effluvent de caramel et de barrique d’alcool du sud. Très agréable présence de vanille française. Malts discrets et secs. En effet, la texture en bouche est plutôt mince et peu enveloppante. M’est d’avis que la noix assèche dangereusement l’ensemble par sa contribution en huile très généreuse. Sucre résiduel important. Plaisante.

Shared at an Ann Arbor get together at Jeff’s on July 20. 375 mL bottle. The pour is a lighter brown/black color with a thicker tan head that falls down quickly, leaving a couple spots of lace behind. The aroma is pretty good. There is a lot of fresh coffee. There is almost a bit of green pepper to it, so I think it needs a little time. There is a good nuttiness and a lot of roasted malt. The bourbon is a little hot, but it’s pretty balanced. The flavor is a little more balanced. The coffee is still very green. There is a nice roasted malt and a good chocolate before the bourbon and charred oak kick in. The mouth feel is a little thin, but well carbonated. The aftertaste is pretty good. There is a lot of booze on the back end that I’m not crazy about.

Sample from bottle #131/230 at the "Jackie O’s Staff Bottle Tasting Part 2" on 12/18/2015. The beer pours a brown-black color with a medium foamy tan head that diminishes steadily to a thin outer ring. Stringy lacing on the glass. Aroma of roasted malt, coffee and bourbon. Full-bodied with an oaky bourbon and roasty malt and coffee character. The finish is bourbon-infused mocha. Very good all around.
