Brooklyn Black Ops

"Brooklyn Black Ops does not exist. However, if it did exist, it would be a strong stout concocted by the Brooklyn brewing team under cover of secrecy and hidden from everyone else at the brewery. The myth is that this supposed 'Black Ops' was then aged for four months in bourbon barrels, bottled flat, and re-fermented with Champagne yeast. Presumably such a beer would raise a rich, fluffy dark brown head and it would combine chocolate and coffee flavors with a rich underpinning of vanilla-like bourbon notes. A beer like that would be mighty nice, but it would be hard to make more than few cases — it could never be sold or released to the public. They say that the brewmaster revealed the beer to a few other people at the brewery only after it had been barreled. This beer is obviously a figment of people's fervent imaginations. Everyone go home now — there's nothing to see here." —brewer

"Opaque brown black color with fine saffron tan mousse. Lavish aromas of fruity buttery caramel, honeyed nuts, molasses, and vanilla bespeak bourbon barrels and follow through on a rich, decadent entry to a fruity full body with spicy fruit cake and cherry cordial notes. Finishes with a long, chewy, and evolving caramelized nut and grain fade. A dangerously delicious stout." —Beverage Testing Institute
