A - The beer produces a delightful creamy dark tan head with decent retention. The beer is pitch black.

S - The aroma has a nice nuttiness, light chocolate notes and a hint of maple syrup.

M - They were spot on with the body. It has light carbonation and is smooth and creamy and full in body.

T - The taste is much like the aroma, but with a little more of Belgian candy flavor. The walnuts give the beer a unique nutty flavor. There are tiny notes of chocolate followed by the Belgian candy sugar which pair well with the hops. The alcohol is surprisingly well hidden.

This is a fantastic beer. The combination of ingredients work very well. It drinks way too easily for what it is and has great body.

really solid stout with added ingredient. im not quite sure what black walnuts taste like, but there was definitely something different about this one. maybe some nuttiness?

Thanks to someone for sharing this beer. I think it may have been thirdeye11.

The beer pours a black color with a tan head. The aroma is very strong. I get a lot of walnuts as well as a lot of dark chocolate. Very nice. The flavor is just as good and a little bit more complex. I get a lot of chocolate and coffee as well as some oak and molasses notes. Very easy to drink for a beer that is 10 percent alcohol. Medium to thick mouthfeel and medium carbonation. Outstanding.

Poured from bottle to pint glass. Dark rich color with foamy caramel head that dissolved quickly. Coffee, roasted malts and chocolate are apparent. Modest carbonation at first sip; viscous blend coats the palate - chocolate and coffee are balanced. Don't get the walnut but there is a "chicory" taste. Overall a nice beer!

Thanks, MrHirschybar!

Dark black body with a moderately sized dark brown head. This beer looks shiny, dark, thick, and heavy. It's nearly perfect for the style--it's menacingly gorgeous.

A rich, inviting, decadent aroma. There's lots of chocolate and roasted malt with a distinct nutty element as well. There's also some dark fruit. Complete.

The flavor too is very nice, with lots of roasted malt, chocolate, walnut, and a hint of licorice character. Delicious.

Full bodied with low to moderate carbonation--creamy, decadent, luscious--just awesome.

An incredibly drinkable imperial stout with a unique and interesting walnut component.

Hate to say this but I'm just not on the Jackie O's band wagon. Oil of Aphrodite is good in every way but not amazing to me.
