A- Pours a black color with a very very thin brown head. Head is pretty much a ring of bubbles around the edge of the glass and no lacing left behind at all.

S- Smell is pretty roasty, bakers chocolate, spicy rum and wood. There it is again the same funk that I get from all these BA brews.

T- Taste is a lot like the nose. A bit more booze than I expected. Same funk is here again. Not quite how to explain this funk.

M- Fuller side of medium for sure and light carbonation.

O- This same bit of funkiness that I keep picking up in their brews is a bit of a let down. I really enjoyed the regular version.

After trying the regular I'm curious how well this beer fares...

The beer pours a jet black with an oily head that fades quickly. The nose is sweet with a big rum barrel aroma and some malty sweetness. There is an oily walnut in the taste that mixes with the huge rum barrel flavors. The malty sweetness comes off a bit chocolately, but there is a boozy bite in the finish. This beer has a medium-heavy body with a residual sweetness, roastiness, and some oily barrel that lingers. This doesn't drink as smooth as expected, but still very spot on flavors. I've enjoyed this beer twice, but feel it's lacking in comparison to apparition.

Bottle (2011)

Thanks for opening this with me, DarthKostrizer!

(Aged for 6+ months)

Black throughout with a moderately sized brown head that leaves dots and spots of lace down the glass. This has appropriate visible carbonation per the style.

A somewhat strange aroma, especially for the style. There's a good amounts of wood and caramel aroma, along with some off-putting acidic/funk character. I'm sure that isn't intended. There's some chocolate and roast elements as well, but something is off here.

The flavor is also I'm sure unintended funked and acidic. The wood notes taste moldy, the rum flavors sharp and acidic, and the rich chocolate and cream flavors don't hide something going wrong here.

Medium bodied with moderate to high carbonation.

Not good.

Thanks to DarthKostrizer for sharing this one at his tasting.

Bottle # 92/206. 2011 vintage.

Pours an opaque black with a dark khaki head that settles to an oily film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace form around on the drink down. Smell is of dark roasted malt, wood, rum, and some funky dirty feet aromas. Taste is much the same down to the funky flavors. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty poor beer with some sort of infection going on.

Review from a full pour on draft at the release last year. I will admit that the bottle I opened a few months later was a drain pour due to really harsh astringency/huskiness and dirty booziness. Needless to say, this beer may exhibit some variation.

For now I cannot find notes on the bottle so I will limit my review to the notes (draft) I do have on hand...

A - Black and a bit more thin looking than the regular full body of the base Oil of Aphrodite. Very little head but there are some dark fudgy twinges of color at the top ringing my glass.

S - The oak component is really prominent - damp and musty; full of age and knowing. There's some tartness from the liquor but rum is bound to do that to some extent I think. Sweet toasted coconut wafts up at me - the evidence of a clean-drinking dark rum.

T - Where I found the aroma to be good, the flavor was pure excellence. The rum is really potent and assertive. Hot but not really boozy/offensive. I was getting boatloads of coconut and vanilla bean from the barrel. Happily, the base beer was still wonderfully present. Lots of sweet roast and nuttiness, coffee undertones, and bitter dark grains.

M - Light carbonation, pleasant density - though some more fullness/body would only help to add impact to this beer. The rum starts smooth but gains in harshness on the finish. I'd venture that some age in properly stored/handled bottles might do this beer wonders. (I wouldn't take this advice on any 2011 bottles though.)

O - This (on tap) was a beer that lives up to the hype.

Bomber # 70/192 from the original release. This was proclaimed by a local advocate to be one of the single best barrel aged beers ever created. So going into this my expectations were set pretty high. Poured into a matching Jackie O's snifter, the brew appears black in color with a dark mocha head. The cap fades leaving a bit if spotty lace sticking to the glass. Some leggings of alcohol creep down the wall of the glass slowly. The head holds in mainly a ring around the outside of the glass.

The aroma is dark and roasty as expected with a kilned quality producing the expected scents of coffee, chocolate and an overall fresh roastiness. In the background is a faint nutty aspect mixed with some alcohol tang, citrus and mineral elements. A bit of sulfur emerges when swirled across the back. In the nose, the barrel character never really jumps outright, it primarily plays a supporting role to the alcohol scent.

The taste includes some fortified alcohol aspect overtop a bitter roasted grain base. Espresso mixes with unsweetned chocolate and a bit of citrus that seemingly comes feom
coffee instead of hops. There is a very nutty aspect that blends into some barrel flavors of caramel and toast. Some fruity alcohol flavors are present before the onset of mild vanilla that lasts into the aftertaste.

This is a boozy brew but overall is integrated nicely. I enjoyed the subtile barrel nuances but was a bit disappointed that the base nutty character i enjoyed so much was almost completely lost under the increased alcohol presence. It is a medium bodied brew with a modest level of carbonation. I had no issues finishing my glass and would had reached for more if it was possible. This is not the worlds best barrel aged beer but it is most certainly worth a try.

22 oz bottle into a couple of snifters. Batch #1. Bottle 70/192/ Huge thanks go to Stakem for sharing this. I’m glad I could be there when you finally decided to open this!

Pours a pitch black, topped with a ½ finger of rich and creamy chocolate colored head. This maintains a robust ½ finger, leaving back a thick cascade of brown oils and frothy lace. The aroma smells of fudge, molasses, vanilla, dark fruit, dark roast, and some spicy warmth towards the back. This is smooth and delicious in the nostrils.

The taste is just so smooth and well integrated across the board here, with notes of rum, spice, vanilla, chocolate, toffee, some darker ripe fruit, and then some dry roasted notes and char on the finish. The mouthfeel is full bodied and just so smooth and creamy on the palate. There is a very light sharpness to the carbonation but the overall feel here and ridiculously well hid alcohol content just carries all of that sticky sweetness so well.

I REALLY liked this! The rum character seems to cover up a lot of the walnut flavor that was so prominent in the regular version of this but man, the melding of the base and barrel flavor here is just so well done. This one grew on me more and more as I worked through this glass. I’ve been really enjoying these BA Jackie O’s beers that I’ve had so far. I look forward to checking out more in the future.

Big thanks to foofaa for bringing this one to Imminent Liquidation II. I have wanted to try this one for awhile now, glad to finally have the chance.

A - Pours jet black with a nice one and a half finger tall tan head leaving thin streaks of lace down most of the glass.

S - Smells of plenty of dark roast, warm rum, vanilla, coffee, chocolate and a surprising amount of walnuts for how much this beer has added to it. Grows a little spicier as it sits in the glass, most likely from the rum.

T - Starts off with some chocolaty sweetness and a bit of dark roasted malt slowly giving way to hints of walnuts, vanilla, coffee and plenty of spicy rum. Finish has some dry oak tannins and some sweet roast, not lingering on the pallet for very long.

M - Big body and flavors with moderate carbonation. The carb works very well with the flavors and while they are strong they don't overpower the pallet for very long.

O - I really liked the base of this one so I was looking forward to trying this treatment and it didn't disappoint. I look forward to trying some of the other ones in the future.

Big thanks to msgraves for this huge want, thanks man! I really enjoyed the regular,

2011 bottle number 85 of 206 poured into 2 eclipse snifters.

A- looking real good, somewhat still with a small white head that doesn't last long.

S- woa this one is huge on the alc, it's so heavy it covers up everything else. Smells more like tequila/ cheap rum. I'm not liking this too much.

T- taste is better but still not to my liking. The base comes through here covered with that same tequila like rum flavor. No sign of walnuts like the base had but the roasted stout is there.

M- mouthfeel is average for a ba stout, not very much carbonation and somewhat thick body. It's alright, works well to cover the mouth, including that tequila alc taste

O- not sure what happened here, I've had ccb Neils and loved it. This one was much different than that, and I dont think it worked well with the rum, I can see this base better in whiskey, brandy or bourbon. I was wondering if I had a bad bottle or maybe it wasn't aging well (6 months) but reading some other reviews it sounds like this is how it's supposed to taste (atleast this batch anyway) so I guess it's one of those cases that its just not for me.

Bomber provided by Claaark13 in a trade a while back. Thanks heaps for the stuff man!

From a bomber into a snifter
Vintage: 2011
Bottle 94 of 206
Drunk right after the base beer

APPEARANCE: A thicker, dark black pour produces a one finger, medium looking, fizzy, mocha colored head with good retention. Black body with no carbonation evident. Head slowly fades to a good wisp and ring that remain until the end and leave falling dots of lacing as the glass empties. Relatively thick and black, but the head was a little too obnoxious. Exactly the same as the base beer.

SMELL: Very nice stuff, and the barrel is wonderfully potent. Rum, milk chocolate and vanilla are there for sure. Some roasted malts, smoky notes and hints of licorice in there as well. Bold enough with hints of the base beer showing through. Nice stuff.

TASTE: Some roasted notes up front and quickly washed away by a big rum barrel. Lots of rum, milk chocolate and loads of vanilla on the palate, as well as some well measured boozy notes. Aftertaste is bold and lingering with smoky notes, roasted malt and a touch of bitter, dark chocolate form the base beer, as well as lots of rum and barrel notes. Very flavorful, enjoyable, and the base beer isn’t totally dominated by the rum and vanilla flavors from the barrel. Full on.

PALATE: Medium body and medium carbonation. Not creamy enough, unfortunately. A little light and watery on the palate, goes down fine and finishes slightly sticky on the palate. Suffers from the same watery palate as the base beer, which holds it back a bit.

OVERALL: It’s too bad the feel isn’t quite up to par, as the nose and flavor profile on this one are world class. The barrel is potent, interesting and flavorful, and the base beer is strong enough to play a nice roll in the flavor profile. Certainly a tasty brew that I’d love to have again. Perhaps a future batch will provide the feel this beer really needs to take it to that extra leve? Only time will tell. Thanks again for sending this one over Claaark13. We really enjoyed this one.

Shared by Jeffo. Thanks, man.

bottle 94/206.

A hard pour in a snifter revealed a fairly thick stout with a nice one centimeter mocha colored head. Minor lacing.

A smell i do remember from back in the day when I would actually drink rum. So rum barrel present on the nose together with some dark fruits, vanilla and dark malts

Bold and complex flavors. The but falvors from the base beers shines through. Also picked up enough of the roasted malts and sweetness.

The mouthfeel is a lot lighter then expected by the mean looking pour. It's seems a bit watery and the body is just not full enough to make this beer excellent. Also found the carbonation a tad too much for the style.

Highly recomended!!!

Thanks Jeff for bringing this for random beer night!

Irresponsible Tick #5

Dark brown, almost black. Only a few specks of foam rest atop the beer. Ooh... strong rum notes permeate the aroma; spicy and awesome. Molasses across the board and some roasted chocolate. Kinda reminds me of Captain Morgan Private Stock. Oh man, tastes friggin' good. Spicy rum notes still shine but blend astoundingly with the base. So well rounded. Semi-sweet chocolate malts with a dash of coffee. Burnt undertones. Full body, slick and viscous. Low carbonation. Slightly tangy finish. Yesss....

2011 vintage, bottle 65/206, courtesy of Ryan011235. A vigorous pour into the middle of an oversized snifter yields nary a bubble. I tried pouring a little into a narrow tulip, but no dice. Appropriately dark, though, and it leaves nice legs. Repeated swirling finally coaxes a few hints of wispy foam.

The rum presence in the nose is steady but not overpowering, although it does manage to take a bit of the edge off the walnut blast of the base beer. Still smells plenty nutty, though. Cocoa powder and dry roast malt aromas with a touch of chocolate sweetness. Burnt, buttery, oaky, inviting.

Burnt and roasted malt flavors are immediately followed up with a flash of alcohol heat. Dark fruit with plenty of rum and oak. More boozy than warming; the nuts finally at the end of the finish after the heat dies down. Sweet and tangy at times, charred at others. I'm reminded of homemade caramel. Modest carbonation. The booziness seems to hurt the otherwise coating, oily feel a bit.

Pretty nice sipper here, although the booziness makes me wonder if I should have held onto it for a while before enjoying. I suspect if I had another bottle in a year, it would score higher. I liked the regular Aphrodite better than this one, but I'd certainly be up for trying the other variations.

Had this at the August 27th bottle release. A couple 4 oz pours from tasting snifters.

4.5 A: Black. Came with nearly no head, but the light brown head that was there stuck around a while and left some lacing.

5.0 S: Wow! The regular is already wonderful, but now its perfect. Rich chocolate, caramel, decent general maltiness, black walnut nuttiness, and candi sugar. The rum and barrel adds plenty of vanilla, some oak, and of course some sweet rum.

4.5 T: The taste is similar to the smell. Chocolate, caramel, walnut nuttiness, moderate toastiness, soft roastiness. The rum and vanilla are quite strong in the taste and indeed probably a bit stronger than in the nose.

4.5 M: Heavy body, but on the lighter end of the spectrum. A decent bit thicker than the regular. Great creaminess and super smooth.

4.5 D: Great base beer. Great treatment. I could drink Oil all day.

Bottle shared by Riko at Woodshop Classix, thanks!

A: Very dark brown, bordering on black. There's a small light brown head.

S: Fudge and brown sugar with a lower level of roast. Rum is light, and it accompanies oak and vanilla. Blackstrap molasses is evident.

T: Fudge and roasted malt with sweet brown sugar and evident vanilla. The rum is a little stronger here than in the aroma, and fusel notes are somewhat harsh, though not detrimental.

M: Full body with moderate carbonation.

Overall: The beer had a nice aroma but the alcohol was a little harsh in the flavor.

08/27/11- Had this one on draft at the Jackie O's release.
A: Soft cream collar with no lacing, but opaque.
S: Honey-dipped walnuts and rum. The malt doesn't decessarily stand out except as chocolate-covered raspberries. Pleasant.
T: Nice molasses and rum with some white wine acidity. Good sugar and vanilla but overall dry and crisp with smokey chocolate raspberry linger.
M: Thinner and crisper than you'd expect, with a slight fruit viscosity.
O: Great.

On tap at Jackie O's at the August release.

Looks pretty much the same as all of the other treatments, except it has a more oily sheen over the surface of this black-with-chocolate-edges beer.

The rum barrels really sweeten things up. They give it a spicy, sweet, candied aroma that puts the hurtin' on this beer's burnt malt aroma. Its very nutty and creamy with a vanilla and caramel blend. There is a bit of the damp, musky wood aroma that so many JO's BA beers get.

This stuff is sweet and rummy, but it maintains a good balance and doesn't get too sticky or sickly. This does pack a fairly strong alcoholic punch, but it is quite welcome in such a big beer. Toffee, caramels, vanilla and sweet pipe tobacco. The base is roasted and nutty.

Thick and oily. The carbonation is very low, giving this beer a really chewy feel with a stiff alcoholic warmth all the way down. This beer is thick, but I don't think it is as thick as last year's batch of regular OoA was. Perhaps the barrels thinned it out ever so slightly.

A really damn good beer. The best of the bottles offered on the day, in my opinion.

black as night oil like liquid which had a huge tan head that really very slowly faded leaving behind lots of gooey sticky brown lace.

caramel, with some chocolate mixed in and a strong alcohol presence. Lots of sweet vanilla and bourbon, huge oak smells here. smell as well, very sweet overall. It was smooth, with not alot of carbonation. Huge bourbon whiskey type taste hit me right away as did the alcohol, this was not something to be messed with for sure. Very creamy thick feel and very strong alcohol presentation. Hints at french vanilla and a touch of chocolate rounded out the back side and added a bit of sweetness.

Thanks to Mark for sharing this and me for sharing some with Jeff's carpet.

A: The pour is black as night with a finger of tan head.

S: Lots of roast and charred barrel/oak to begin with. The vanilla and rum notes come through after that and, strangely, so do the walnuts. Plenty of coffee and dark chocolate with a touch of spice (from the rum?).

T: A strong flavor of dark chocolate and roasted malts up front, followed by lots of rum, vanilla, and charred oak. There is a very distinct nuttiness and only a moderate coffee flavor. Like with the aroma, there is a slight spice note.

M: The body is medium to full with a medium level of carbonation.

O: One of the best Jackie O's beers I've had to date. Really nice stuff.

Poured from a 22 oz. bottle into a tasting glass.

Appearance: Typical stout appearance - nearly black with a creamy brown head that laces the glass a little bit.

Smell: Rum is an interesting treatment - it leaves some aromas I am not as familiar with. I do get base rum aroma, with dark fruits and roasted malt too.

Taste: Up front I get a bit of chocolate, molasses, anise, and smooth, fully roasted malt. A pervasive rum flavor exists throughout. A little bit of walnut and spice comes through as well. Toward the end a soft earthy, herbal hop presence adds some bitterness. The finish is sweet with one last blast of rum. I like that the flavor picks up the flavor of the rum without picking up a strange booziness.

Mouthfeel: The carbonation is medium in degree and quite smooth. The smooth, creamy nature of the beer pushes this higher.

Overall: I was torn between 4 and 4.5 for taste, but the great mouthfeel pushes me up here for the overall rating. This is not an experiment I would have tried, but it came out very nicely.

Thanks to Brad for bringing this along when he came to Chicago. Been wanting to try this for a while.

A - Black beer, brown head that had decent retention and was made of fine bubbles. Had a surprising amount of lace on the sides for such a big beer.

S - Nicely toasted walnuts on the nose. There is some rum and the slightest bit of rum spice in there as well. Roasted malts.

T - Probably one of the better, if not best, rum barrel beers I've had. Unfortunately that's a spirit that doesn't seem to do a ton of good with beer. Baker's chocolate and walnuts and some well integrated rum. I'd say it's a winning combination.

M - Smooth, fairly close to full bodied, with soft carbonation.

O - Really nice beer, I don't like rum a ton or rum barrel aged stuff much either, but this is quite well done and a great combination. Hopefully I'll have my chance to get my hands on this again.

Pours a very thick, viscous black into a Darkness tulip. Dark brown receding head. Looks intense. The nose, holy cow: nuts, roasted and caramel malts, molasses, brown sugar, rum, vanilla. Comes together really nicely. Lots going on blended well into one flavor. I have had regular Oil of Aphrodite and this flavor blows the regular one away. The rum and barrel time bring it altogether and stunt some of the harshness of the walnut-skin? flavor, or whatever it was. Big body, appropriately light carbonation. Overall, I really, really enjoyed this beer. Perfect to split between 4 people, a bomber would be too much. Would make a good desert beer. More rum beers! Nice work Brad.

A huge want of mine, knocked off by TurdFurgison. Thank you, Eric.

An impressively thick, black beer, there's a dense, dark brown head as well. As it recedes, it reveals rather nice legs. The nose is intense. The walnuts really come through, with a mild skin-like astringency. The brown sugar and vanilla rum character is noticeable as well. Roasted malt character is rather pronounced as well, this beer doesn't have much by way of sweetness. A little caramel and a little cocoa are present,as well as some cookie dough. The palate opens thick and chewy with a little vanilla, plenty of brown sugar rummy flavor and a moderate roasted malt flavor with a surprisingly low malt bitterness.Nutty walnut flavor is present as well, especially in the mid-palate, along with some caramel. Full in body with medium-light carbonation, this has a sweet and roasty finish with caramel and vanilla. A very impressive stout, this! Thanks again, Eric!

Bottle shared by TurdFurgison, thanks! Bottle # 168/192, a very interesting beer that unintentionally went up against the 50/50 Eclipse Elijah Craig.

Beer is black and forms a thin lazy head that breaks, no real lacing, beer appears almost oily and with a swirl coats the sides of the glass.

Beer's aroma is complex but really nutty at the same time. I didn't realize this was made with walnuts until someone pointed out that's probably where the aroma was coming from. There is some sweetness and some liquor character.

Beer is medium in body and really creamy in the mouth, there is a lot of rum character and some chocolate. While the beer is quite nutty it is not as nutty as I expected from the aroma. Seems to have incorporated into the palate quite well. Interesting beer all around for sure. I'd have it again no doubt.
