Brooklyn Black Ops Instores Now

As if the Brooklyn Brewery releasing Brooklyner-Schneider Hopfen-Weisse earlier this week wasn't a treat enough they have unleashed one of their most sought after beers. Brooklyn Black Ops is the Brooklyn beer that every beer nerd tries to get their hands on and it is available for a very short time now in South Florida. Here is what the brewery has to say about their grand creation.

"Brooklyn Black Ops does not exist. However, if it did exist, it would be a strong 10% ABV 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 Woodford Reserve bourbon barrels, bottled flat, and re-fermented in the bottle with Champagne yeast. Presumably such a beer would raise a rich, fluffy dark brown head and it would combine choco- late 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. The rumor going around is that the brewery plans to drink the beer themselves over the holidays and give some to their family and friends. That’s what they say. But frankly, there’s no evidence for any of this. This beer is obviously a figment of people’s fervent imaginations. People tend to get loopy around the holidays. Everyone go home now – there’s nothing to see here."
