375 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Black body with a small off-white head. Very thin collar.

Smell - Rich dark chocolate aroma. Rum is equally strong, but doesn't overwhelm. It has a strong buttery aroma, too.

Taste - Lots more rum. It dominates. Extremely boozy. Butterscotch flavor is almost overwhelming. Chocolatey, but rum lingers in the finish.

Mouthfeel - Overwhelmingly boozy. Medium body.

Overall - The butterscotch is too much. Detracts from the beer.

Like regular Oil, it pours an opaque black. Has a small mocha head that does have a little ring that survives all the way down the snifter.

Smell is very strong aroma of rum. Very sweet, similar to a Captain and Coke, with vanilla, carmel, and toffee. Also slight cocoa and roasted aromas as it warms, but the rum overshadows everything else.

The taste has the rum right up front. Sweet, with a little burn. Toward the back of my tongue, I get the slightly chared, roasted malt and chocolate, with a nutty aftertaste. The walnut aspect is what sets this stout apart both with the regular version, and this one. This may sound stupid, but my biggest criticism would be the rum. While quite enjoyable, it doesn't share the spotlight quite enough. I think regular Oil is a fantastic stout with a unique flavor and it is slightly drowned out here. The balance does seems to improve the more it warms.

The aging seems to have thinned the body of this beer.

I think Oil of Aphrodite is an outstanding beer. I also think this version is outstanding, but the barreling does not quite take it to world class status. Another outstanding brew from Jackie O's though.

I can taste the base beer (which I love), but booze heat overtakes this particularly on the back end. A little bit of a a disappointment based on how much I love regular Oil of Aphrodite. Still a nice stout.

12.7oz bottle from latest release. No bottle dating. Opened at cellar temp and poured into Hoppin' Frog snifter.

Opaque, black liquid, two-finger, mocha head to a nice rim throughout. Large splotches of lacing as the tasting proceeds.

Wonderful aroma of rum, caramel, nut/earth, dark fruit, cocoa, mild char.

Dark fruits, caramel sweetness, rum backing and mild burnt malt. The rum is ever pervasive but does not crush the other flavors.

Full body, slightly slick, not as heavy as BCBS (which is the measure).

A really nice rum barreled stout that melds ingredients into an outstanding, complex brew. Well done.
