L - black and oily with a hazelnut head that quickly dissipated
S - vanilla, almond, bourbon
T - taste follows the nose
F - thick, oily mouthfeel with minimal carbonation
O - another excellent stout from Jackie O's. Even people who don't like beer love this stout

Oil Of Aphrodite back in the rotation with almond and vanilla. This is classic Jackie O's with a deep profile, light barrel, and a bunch of flavor. Dark brown sugar and nuttiness to it.

Very dark brown with black edges for the body, light brown ring. Vanilla and almond create a marzipan image on the nose, chocolate and bourbon, oak and black strap molasses, goes with it beautifully. Starts with the bourbon, molasses, chocolate and walnut in the taste, but the vanilla and almond combo does eventually shine through with the oak before the finish. Lighter body, barrel is present but not instructive, adjunct cool a bit. Nice variant!

Served from the bottle in a Phase Three snifter.

VDubb was worried about this one, what with his distaste for nutty beers, but I pushed him into it. Deal with it, skippy. This stuff pours a straight obsidian topped by a half-finger at best of light tan foam. The nose comprises almond extract, roasted malts, bourbon-soaked wood, a hint of vanilla, and a touch of coffee. The taste leads with the barrel and the roast, but quickly assumes a strong character of marzipan, before then regaining some roast and dipping everything in bourbon-soaked vanilla. The body is a hefty medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a smooth feel. Overall, a tasty extrapolation on the Oil premise, one that provides plenty of marzipan goodness without overdoing it (or bringing in some strange additional cherry notes that marzipan tends to drag along with it).

Is this beer? Or, Hershey’s chocolate syrup?

Though I understand this a current trend for stouts (i.e. pastry stout), its way too sweet for me and not representative of a well crafted flavored stout.
