Brooklyn Black Ops
Black Ops is a big, beautiful Imperial Stout aged in Bourbon Barrels, a white whale in the BA stout world. Rates 100/100 on RateBeer, an Imperial Stout that is aged 9+ months in Woodford Reserve barrels, then bottled flat with champagne yeast and carbonated in the bottle. The champagne yeast gives the beer a lightness that helps balance the huge vanilla, bourbon, coffee and chocolate notes in the stout itself. Only 1000 cases each year are produced. These are 750ml bottles, retail for $20.99.
