2016 bottle. Poured from a 12.7oz bottle into a Jackie O's tulip glass. Acquired in a trade.

Pours a deep brown body with a one finger brown head that reduces quickly to leave a ring of retention and spotty lacing.

Aromas are muted upfront but as it warms, delicious chocolate-vanilla-caramel is upfront and center. Light coffee and a bit of spices muddled in there.

On the tongue.. upfront is lightly sweet cocoa and bittersweet chocolate, followed by a bit of spices (not too much), vanilla, more cocoa, caramel, finishing super charred and toasty. Mouthfeel is medium-heavy, low carbonation.

I wish I had gotten more of the spices / pepper notes in here, maybe I sat on this bottle too long. The cocoa and vanilla are definitely there to make it a very enjoyable beer.

Body is a dark brown nearly black hue. Pours with little to no head.

Nose is awesome. Lots of walnuts, a hint of vanilla, and a lot of spice.

Flavor has a lot of cinnamon upfront with walnut in the background. The finish is vanilla with a big hit of habanero for the finish.

Mouthfeel is medium to heavy weight with high carbonation and a slightly powdery feel.

This is an awesome beer. Reminds me of a more carefully put together dark app mole that I loved so much. Happy to see this near the top of the beer list for the state of Ohio.

theres a lot going on in this beer but its so good. a little nutty, a little spicy, a little chocolaty and fairly bitter at the end. great amount of carb for a high abv stout too, nice golden tan color that thins out but sticks around for the whole glass.

Black color with tan head. Aroma is quite spicy with cinnamon, nutmeg and dark chocolate. Taste is really spicy with chili heat and nice chocolate notes. Medium body and carbonation. Overall it's a really nice spiced stout with a good amount of chili.

Pours a shiny black color. Thin tan head dissipates steadily leaving no lacing and no residual head. Dark and deep albeit a tad on the thin side.

Smell is fantastic - loads of cocoa, cinnamon, vanilla, and roasted malts. Not much heat on it, but the smell does perk up the nostrils.

Taste has notes of cocoa, cinnamon, light peppery heat and roasted malts. Hoppier than expected with a hoppy bitterness coming through on the back end. Flavors are sweet overall with candied sugars and brown sugar notes coming through. Heat comes through more as the beer warms.

Feel is medium bodied with some lively carbonation. Avoids coming across powdery which is something I notice in many beers that incorporate cinnamon. Dry finish with some lingering hop bitterness.

Overall a very nice spiced stout, certainly in the upper tier for the style.

Man I wanted to really like this. I'm a huge fan of the regulation Oil of Aphrodite. I was happy to find this in a 12.7 oz bottle. But I have to admit that this was just not as good as the standard Aphrodite. I will try it on tap sometime, because I'm a trooper that way. Hopefully it will come closer to my expectations.

Very dark with notes of coffee and chocolate and something not as pleasant. Perhaps the walnuts? Definitely an alcohol warmth as well.
