Brooklyn Black Ops

Brooklyn Black Ops

Striking design for this limited edition Russian Stout, along with some cheeky copy:

Barrel-aged in Woodford Reserve bottles. Brooklyn Black Ops does not exist. However, if it did exist, it would be a robust stout concocted by the Brooklyn brewing team under cover of secrecy and hidden from everyone else at the brewery. Supposedly, “Black Ops” was aged for four months in bourbon barrels, bottled flat, and re-fermented with Champagne yeast, creating big chocolate and coffee flavors with a rich underpinning of vanilla-like oak notes. They say there are only 1000 cases. We have no idea what they’re talking about.

Which brew are you celebrating Stout Day with?

  1. I got my share from the 2012 batch and am now aging them for at least until next Boxing day (Dec 26th 2013). Anxious ofcourse to taste this, but I’m sure I’ll be rewarded after! Greetings from the frozen Finland.

    Would be awesome to hear how long other ppl have aged their BlackOps for. Follow and comment via Twitter: @JMArnkil
