poured from a 375ml bottle into a hill farmstead tulip. big thanks to my buddy Respirologist for this bottle. rather excited for this one... first Jackie O's I've had the opportunity to try.

L: pours like oil, a deep dark brown/black with a little under half a finger of light mocha head.. dissipates quickly to a thin rim around the outside. dark brown around the top when held to light. Nice looking brew.


S: upon opening and pouring the bottle I'm immediately hit with the wafting aroma of dark rum. In the nose i get dark rum soaked lightly charred oak, dark molasses, chocolate, & dark fruit.

T: A very well balanced beer w/ plenty of rum soaked barrel character. Rum sweetness, molasses right up front, followed by a lightly charred oaky note.... into dark fruit and more wet rum on the finish. a slight nuttiness begins to become more prevalent as this beer warms. very tasty brew with some very nice complexities

F: My initial reaction is that this beer is a bit thin. It does have a very nice viscosity to it... but it is on the light side.... i would expect a little more heft here from such a big beer. It hold true to its name Oil of Aphrodite as far as mouthfeel is concerned... As the brew warms the oils start to build up into a slightly numbing coating on the inside of your mouth... and it starts to become more and more chewy as it warms. very light on the carbonation. nice feel overall but i wish it had a bit more heft.

O: a very tasty treat, with loads of rummy barrel character. A very nice offering from Jackie O's that makes me interested in trying some of their other brews. Very nice, well balanced complexity going on here... great brew.... just wish there was a tad more heft to the body.

A friend was in Ohio the day these were released, he snagged me two bottles. I wanted to love this beer but the rum sweetness was over the top, saccharine. I'll revisit this brew again - maybe my palate was off when I first tried it. There's a lot going on, wood, char, nuttiness - but the rum does a damn good job of masking those elements.

Poured into an oversized wine glass

A- pours a pitch black color with a small foamy khaki colored head that reduces to just a ring around the edge

S- Wow, dominant rum aroma up front, the strongest rum barrel that I've experienced on the nose. Beyond that, nutty notes mix with dark fruits, butterscotch, vanilla dark molasses & candied sugar. Very pronounced aroma

T- Big sweet rum flavor, as expected from the powerful aroma, it gives flavors of sweet molasses and candied sugar. Slightly tart dark fruits kick in mid-palate with flavors of dark cherry & blackberries. Toasted nuts & earth, quickly followed by cocoa and smoky charred malt on the finish

M- medium-viscous body with low carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and a slightly boozy, warming finish

O- this seems to have the most dominant barrel character, which plays nicely with the base beer. The nuttiness of the walnuts add a contrast to the sweetness of the rum and Belgian sugar, very well done
