COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Here in Brooklyn we’ve combined European malt and hops, Belgian dark sugar, and raw wildflower honey from a New York family farm to create Brooklyn Local 2. Our special Belgian yeast adds hints of spice to the dark fruit, caramel, and chocolate flavors. After 100% bottle re-fermentation, this ale reveals a marvelous dry complexity, enjoyable by itself or at the dinner table.

Pinball (10925) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 27, 2014
75 cl bottle from eurospar, valby. clear amber brown, smooth fluffy light brown head. aroma is nutty, bitter euro hoppy, bitter malty but not very strong.notes of honey. flavor is honey, syruppy notes, faint flowery and fruity notes, alc. bite, caramel. I somehow fail to get excited by this one, reminds me of the cheaper end of danish micro breweries and their attempts at making something alc. strong,but failing reg flavor and "solid" ness.

Hidden_Pooch (410) - Stratford, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - SEP 19, 2014
Belgian done Brooklyn is Belgian done right. Poured a murky dark brown with a small off white head that lasts long. Aroma is of grapes, plums, leather, and caramel. Tastes of vanilla, honey, dark sugar, vinous, and dark fruits. Has a medium smooth body with a dry, sharp aftertaste. It hides its booze well and is quite quaffable.

BrewGoblin (463) - Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island, CANADA - SEP 15, 2014
The Yanks are doing Belgian better than Belgium! A raisin-brown, cloudy pour with a thin, greasy light beige topper. Very pungent smells of vanilla, wood, leather, cherries, currants and caramel. The taste is lightly sour, sweet and spicy with a lot of dark fruitcake and vanilla frolicking amidst the booze. Mid-high carbonation with a sharp and dry finish. A fine quaff.

Eh...good. Nothing special. Hints of malt. A little hoppines. Just a lot of littles.

daje (2609) - NORWAY - SEP 2, 2014
Bottle. Murky brown body with a thin tanned head. Aroma of malt, spices, yeast and honey. Taste of sugar, honey, rye and pear, a bit messy, seems the beer isn’t sure where it’s going. Mild malty and hoppy aftertaste.

dalekliz (882) - San Diego, California, USA - AUG 17, 2014
Bottle. Pours a murky reddish-brown with a huge fluffy off-white head that lingers a long time. Light aroma, yeasty and sweet, with grass, citrus, honey, malt, spices. Taste is smooth and almost creamy, lots of honey sweetness, malt, dark fruits, and sharper spicy yeast on top. Lingering sweet spice. Nice.

mcclainc50 (204) - New York, USA - AUG 16, 2014
Pours a deep amber color with an off white head leaving moderate lacing. Aroma of currants, yeast and a slight hoppiness. Floral almost fruity flavor up front with notes of the Belgian yeast. Very easy drinking Belgian string ale, abv is misleading as you wouldn’t know it was over 7%.
