For lovers of Brooklyn Brewery’s Russian imperial stout Black Ops, Four Roses Distillery has announced it has partnered with the New York brewery to create a Black Ops aged in Four Roses Small Batch barrels.
The limited-edition beer is a version of the brewery’s classic imperial stout aged for an undisclosed period in barrels hand-selected by Four Roses master distiller Brent Elliott.
This version of Black Ops hits 12.4% alcohol by volume and combines the traditional chocolate and coffee notes with vanilla-like oak. In addition to barrel-aging, the beer also was re-fermented with champagne yeast.
The partnership was developed through a friendship between Brooklyn Brewery brewmaster Garrett Oliver and Four Roses COO Ryan Ashley, according to a news release.
The 2020 Brooklyn Black Ops will be available in limited quantities beginning in late November, with approximately 2,000 cases of cork-topped, 750mL bottles available in the U.S. The bottles will carry a MSRP of $24.99.Stay In Touch!
