look: 5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 4
A- A damn near pitch black pour with a HUMONGOUS thick and fluffy kahki head that lies three fingers deep and really hangs on for a while. Not a great amount of lacing but after each sip, the foam slowly drips away and subsides.
S- Vanilla beans/extract, toasted/charred wood, dried mission figs, dates, raisins, dried cherries, some chocolate covered banana, whiskey, and gentle stabs of black coffee.
T- Lovely toasted oak cask and bourbon. Big notes of vanilla, cookie dough, really good black coffee, and deep dried dark fruit! The booze really shows it's muscle here, especially as it warms up.
M- Very thin and sparkley for an RIS which is one thing I never really liked about Black OPS thru the years. Being so thin, it accentuates the heavy bourbon instead of masking and blending it together with the coffee/cocoa/figs.
O- I've always thought was a bit expensive at $20-25. Seems like it should be sitting in the $14.99-17.99 range. I really prefer this with two years on it to let the booze settle down and blend in with all the other luxurious notes that this RIS has to offer. The mouthfeel has also always been my biggest pet peave with this one.

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.
