Brooklyn Black Ops Russian Imperial Stout 11.6%
Consumed at Mugs Alehouse’s very last “Split Thy Brooklyn Skull XX”. Full admission, I remember loving this glass of chocolate and coffee goodness, but needless to say it was a long day with a lot of other strong beers, and memories became clouded. Wonderful day was had by all. A few were staggering halfway through, and I think there may have even been some others singing before the end. Here’s the round up from the menu: Barrel-aged in Woodford Reserve barrels. Brooklyn Black Ops was aged for four months in bourbon barrels, bottles flat, and re-fermented with Champagne yeast, creating big chocolate and coffee flavors with a rich underpinning of vanilla-like oak notes.
Mugs, I can’t believe it’s almost been a year since you shuttered. One of the many happy memories I have of Mugs is meeting Jon and getting introduced to his band “Live Ones”. Check them out.
