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.

solidfunk (6482) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 6, 2015
Well done and well balanced. Light florals with hint of caramel. Hazy brown pour with decent head. A hint of coppery aroma. Light sweet and sour finish. I slightly prefer the local 1. Bottle.

sir__v (1480) - Lille, FRANCE - AUG 5, 2015
Bottle from Guillaume - thanks - Color: deep brown beer with no carbonation and heavy brown head. Very nice beer. Smell: domination of sweet and red fruits as grapes and raspberry. Notes of malt and sweet. Finish hoppy. Taste: good palate and nice body. Good red fruits taste, and malt. Lack of body and caramel notes. Sweet problem and domination of alcohol taste. Finish hoppy. Aftertaste: dry alcohol bitterness and red fruits. Global nice beer but with the lack of sweet the balance is not nice for this kind of beer style!

Helsdon (326) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2015
Dark opaque caramel beer with a thick tan head that just won’t quit. Caramel malty nose with molasses, spice, a touch of honey just because I was looking for it, a flat yeast nose, and a touch of zee booze. Solid doubel taste, ripe cherries, molasses, thick caramel malt, bready yeast. Really nice caramel finish. Dangerously drinkable.

boto (2007) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JUL 4, 2015
750ml bottle: This one pours a fairly clear brown color. There was a bit of a fizzy tan head that didn’t linger long or leave any lacing. Little bit of a lighter nose, but still good. Chocolate, slight roast, dark fruits, yeasty, slight spice. The taste is quite good. Some caramel malts, dark fruits, hint of spice. Touch of sweetness with a hint of dryness in the finish. Body is a touch light for a 9% beer. Still, very good.

Grzesiek79 (3691) - Radom, POLAND - MAY 25, 2015
Piwo smaczne i pieknie wygladajace. Piana obfita i bezowo fioletowa jakby, ale nie dosc trwala. Kolor granatowo brazowo rubinowy, gesty i metny. W zapachu sliwki i owoce borowki. W smaku jagody, karmel miod oraz orzechy wloskie. Ale delikatne jakby w doznaniach. Alkohol w pierwszej chwili niewyczuwalny ale po przelknieciu lekko sie go odczuwa, nie mniej dobrze ukryty. Chmielu niezbyt wiele sie wyczuwa. W smaku przypomina mi nieco kompot z suszu ze spora dawka karmelowego cukru. Ogolnie fajne, ale czegos innego sie spodziewalem. Dosc zaskakujace piwo. Jedynka chyba lepsza byla.
