Purchased this one for $21 @ Beers of the World in Rochester.
750 ml cork and caged black bottle poured into a snifter.
Pours as dark as younger35's soul with a one finger deep brown colored head that falls to a thin creamy layer which lasts throughout. Sticky spotty lacing holds on to the sides of the glass with no intentions of letting go, definitely a looker. Smell is sweet and smooth bourbon all the way with some milky chocolate and Columbian coffee beans. Carmelized almonds, musty earth, and vanilla beans in the nose as well. Just a pleasure to whiff this one, not overdone with the bourbon which can be a huge turn off at times with barrel aging. Taste doesn't disappoint. Rich smokey malts with chocolate, caramel, and gooey brownie batter. Underneath all that malty goodness is the bourbon base which is kept under control quite well. Midway the dark cofee flavors emerge with some wet charred oak and toasted nuts. Aftertaste is sweet with more warm bourbon, vanilla extract, and touch of breadiness. For such a big beer, the feel of this beer is silky smooth. Creamy, rich, and bold with a bit of tingle from the delicate carbonation. Sure, the alcohol is there, but not 11% worth. A pleasure to drink and a good one to share, but I wouldn't have a problem finishing a bottle myself. This is an A+ beer, believe the hype.

Brooklyn Black Ops 2012.
A Black in color, nice thick brown fluffy head. Brown sticky lace.
S chocolate, coffee, port, bourbon.
T chocolate, coffee, port, bourbon, very sweet, coconut.
M silky smooth, porty chocolate aftertaste.
O I guess I shouldn't really discuss this, due to the hush hush nature of this non-existent brew, but if it did exist I'd say it was quite a nice bourbony heavy brew that kept giving me some real port feels throughout the bottle. It was a good drink.
