Brooklyn Black Ops, the brewery’s bourbon barrel aged imperial stout is back on shelves. The very limited beer’s recipe is apparently only known by two people. (Like Coca-Cola.) Each years recipe & flavor is just a little different. What you do need to know — it’s a Russian imperial stout aged in bourbon oak barrels. Bottled flat, and bottle conditioned with champagne yeast.
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 oat notes. They say there are only 1,000 cases. We have no idea what they’re talking about.”
