I got an email from the local wine store saying they are getting this years "black ops" from Brooklyn tomorrow. Its probably going to be expensive. Has anybody had this? Is it worth it?


Here is the wine shop's description:

This is the second ever vintage of Brooklyn's incredibly rare Imperial Stout. Some of the brewery's Black Chocolate Stout, which was brewed in larger quantity than usual last year, was put in Kentucky Bourbon barrels by Brewmaster Garrett Oliver. He kept the endeavor secret from nearly everyone, including brewery staff, until its release last December. It's in 750 mL wine-sized bottles under a cork and we were able to get 3 cases. This beer should age beautifully (I haven't yet opened any of mine from last year's release).

I've enjoyed the base beer for this, in spite of the fact that I'm not really big on stouts. Sounds interesting.

Wish their stuff made it to the west coast. I had a bottle of the chocolate stout a few years back and loved it; it'd be great to pick up some of that.

I had two bottle of Black Ops from last year. Its good, but I dont think its worth the $18-$20 price tag. I much rather have the regular Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout anyday.

One of the brewmasters dropped off a couple at my work. I haven't had a chance to taste it yet but others have given it a thumbs up. Apparently it hasn't been released even in Brooklyn yet.

Apparently Lexington is only getting a case or 2, but not until Feb or March. I should be getting a bottle or 2. Can't wait!

Edit: It's coming in tomorrow!
