Each year Brooklyn Brewery releases their Black OPS, a bourbon barrel aged Russian Imperial Stout. With around 1000 cases produced each year, this limited release beer can be found with some minor leg work. The beer is aged in oak bourbon barrels for about 4 months, bottled flat and re-fermented with Champagne yeast giving it an effervescent body unlike many others in the style. At about 5 months old or so, Nick and Shane open a 2011 vintage of this highly rated stout.
