Currently, I’ve found my new favorite. Brooklyn Black Ops is the culmination of every bit of knowledge that the Brooklyn Brewery has to offer, and it fires on all cylinders. It’s a delectable imperial stout; I’m not one for darker beers, but this has stolen my heart.
Brooklyn Black Ops is dense, oily, and blends the flavors of chocolate and coffee seamlessly into one drink. I’m the first one to judge a chocolate stout, but this absolutely blew me out of the water.
When you think of a dense stout, it’s usually accompanied by the thought of being a harder drink to put down. Whatever witchcraft they threw into Brooklyn Black Ops makes it extremely easy on your palate, all while delivering that full-bodied flavor. It’s a home run for Brooklyn Black Ops.
If a calmer beer is more your forte, try Arrogant Bastard for a different thrill.
