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.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - JUN 24, 2009
750ml caged and corked bottle served in a tulip. Hazy brown pour with a thick head of tight, tan foam that lingered for a bit. A small amount of slippery lacing was left around the glass. The aroma included raisin, caramel, orange peel, spicy yeast, and also an underlying note of chocolate. The flavor had dark fruits, raisin, caramelized sugar, orange, red apple skins, and a hint of chocolate and honey. Medium to full-bodied with a moderate amount of prickly carbonation. Complex and quite drinkable. Nice beer.

yngwie (15382) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2009
Bottle, 75cl corked, shared by the brewer. It’s a semi-clear, copper-colored beer with a nice-looking off-white to beige head. Dried fruits, a hint of roasted malts, citrusy hops and a tiny note of alcohol on the nose. Sweet, caramel flavor with dried fruits and a nice citrusy hoppyness. Good bitterness too. Medium body, nicely carbonated. Pleasant bitterness in the finish. I prefer Local 1 to this one, but it’s still a really good beer, dangerously easy to drink, and quite tasteful too. (090515)

CaptBier (323) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 20, 2009
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with an orangey head. The aroma is sweet malty combined with notes of fruit and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, fruit, alcohol, and honey, leading to a dry and spicy finish. Interesting. It was a little hard to drink though due to the carbonation. It burned a little.

argo0 (12122) - Washington DC, USA - JUN 15, 2009
(750ml bottle) Slow but persistent gusher that eventually reveals a tan head atop a dark brown body. Nice lacing. Aroma is moderately sweet, raisin/fig, caramel, some alcohol, light orange peel, yeast. Taste is sweet, raisin/fig/prune, caramel, some chocolate, orange, light molasses, honey. Alcohol present and warming, not off-putting. Medium-full body, some effervescence. Evocative of a Quad.

[2203-20090530] Bottle. Mild fruity hops aroma with some graininess. Slightly hazy, dark wine red body with a long-lasting foamy off-white head. Grainy fruity hop malt flavour. Medium body is boozy. Surprisingly bland.

UPDATED: JUN 17, 2009 750 ml. Dark brown with a lasting half inch of creamy foam. Aroma of dark fruit, brown sugar, yeasty bread dough and musty light fruit. Flavor is dark fruit and toffee with some light toast. Medium body is tingly and dryish.

IrishBoy (3958) - Bakersfield, California, USA - JUN 14, 2009
750 ml bottle from mcbackus! Cloudy dark brown with a huge (2"), glass lacing, beige head. Nose of flowery hops, light oranges, and a hint of toffee, not a really potent aroma. Flavor is lightly bitter and the orange peel very apparent. Mild sweetness and yeast notes are there too along with minor pepperiness. Finish has light bitterness and a tiny hint of the alcohol. Does not have the big aroma and flavors of most BSAs, everything is kind of muted. Kind of a BSA Light, nothing there to excite me!

A Glass of fantastic, sweet ripe fruits, malty goodness. Honey, Vanilla, cinnamon. Thick and refreshing. A great beer to compliment a meal or to drink on it;s own. I see myself always having a bottle on hand. Sunset Corners in Miami.
