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.

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%.

kevinator (1391) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Good but I was expecting a little more. Bready and grainy malt aroma. Almost like a Dubbel. Murky brown color with a medium head. Weighty palate with fullness and smooth. Flavors were very malty with a hint of Belgian yeast. This character became more pronounced as it warmed. One glass at a time is enough.

wvhoran (401) - Tasmania, - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle. Dark amber-brown with a large, frothy off-white head. Aroma is caramel, hoppy, spicy. Flavour is sweet caramel, yeasty, spicy, overripe fruits. Raisins. Probably a little over carbonated. Nice though.

UXO (822) - CANADA - JUL 1, 2014
Pours a somewhat murky medium brown with a fat fluffy tan head, great retention, and heavy, sticky lacing. Nose is mild, dark sweet malt, faintly spicy, and very little hops. Taste is honey-like sweetness, dark fruit (raisins and cherries), chocolate, and slight spiciness on a sweet dark malt base. Medium bodied, with a smooth and mellow texture and moderate sustained carbonation with a mildly bitter finish and mild warming. Dark and sweet, very reminiscent of a Belgian Dubbel like Chimay Red, but with more pronounced warming. Almost as good as a Chimay Red, in fact, with perhaps just slightly less complexity and depth of flavour. Certainly the nose could stand to be more pronounced, though the flavour does go a long way to making up for that.
