White Snow and Black Ops

Perhaps the biggest surprise for me under the tree this Christmas was a bottle of beer that my daughter and her husband brought from New York.  A big bottle of something called "Black Ops".  Supposedly difficult to find and apparently not many made each year.  Here's the description:

Barrel-aged in Woodford Reserve bottles. Brooklyn Black Ops does not exist. However, if it did exist, it would be a robust stout concocted by the Brooklyn brewing team under cover of secrecy and hidden from everyone else at the brewery. Supposedly, "Black Ops" was aged for four months in bourbon barrels, bottled flat, and re-fermented with Champagne yeast, creating big chocolate and coffee flavors with a rich underpinning of vanilla-like oak notes. They say there are only 1000 cases. We have no idea what they’re talking about.

Not sure when I'll break down and try this one.

Another great day to be snowshoeing on the trails.  I did the 6 mile loops in my fastest time of this season.
