A friend in Ohio sent me the Bourbon Barrel Aged Oil of Aphrodite. It is very flavorful bourbon barrel aged stout that does not go over the top.

Look: black with a half-inch mocca colored head.

Aroma: nice aroma of chocolate, coffee, and bourbon

Taste: roasted malts, sweet chocolate, some coffee, walnuts, bourbon, perhaps some red wine, a lot of flavor.

Feel: medium to full body with a creamy texture. It's a wonderful beer.

Deep dark chocolatey appearance with a slight caramel head.

The slight aroma of bourbon is nearly perfect.

A great body and mouthfeel combined with a good mix of bourbon is delicious.

L- Pours a very dark brown with a little light brown head. It fades to a decent ring around the glass.

S- Some bourbon, but not overpowering. A little bit of chocolate and vanilla.

T- Decent chocolate base with quite a bit of bourbon. Just a slight bit of nuttiness.

F- A little thin, but rich. Slight alcohol burn.

O- Pretty good, but I would have liked a little more nutty flavor from the walnut.

I'm reviewing a 2016 version provided by wesmantooth.

The beer pours a deep black with very little, quickly disappating head on a vigorous pour. The pour leaves a small tan ring with a small amount of lacing.

The smell knocks you back with chocolate and bourbon. There is a light roasted malt presence also.

The taste follows the smell with roasted malts, milk chocolate, and bourbon, but it adds a nuttiness from the walnuts the really comes through in the aftertaste. The chocolate also comes through strongly.

The mouthfeel is nicely thick and mildly carbonated.

Overall, this is an excellent beer. It has a great mouthfeel with a nice, balanced taste. The reputation of this brewery is well deserved.
