Once a "Ghost Bottle" that we only made for ourselves, Brooklyn Cuvée Noire finally journeys beyond our walls. A stout-like blend of German and British pale and dark malts, this beer fermented with Belgian yeast and then spends more than six months in Kentucky bourbon barrels. Dry, brisk, and complex, showing notes of chocolate, coffee, citrus, vanilla and coconut, Cuvée Noire is refermented in this bottle of Champagne yeast. It is a most excellent accompaniment means to dinner.

Pours opaque ink-black with a 1-finger tan head. Moderate amount of bubbling along the wall of the glass. Aroma of coffee, with notes of oak and citrus. Body is medium-to-full and lightly oily. Mild astringency to the finish. Flavor of vanilla oak mixed with coffee. A light citrus note from the orange peel gives it a pleasant note that lightens the overall flavor. As it warms some, a chocolate note comes through.
