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.

IrishBoy (3926) - 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!

aroma of ripe fruits,honey, vanilla, cinnamon, and some floral hops. Flavor is sharp, on the hops, with more spice than the aroma Corriander, and cinnamon come thorugh with some cloves. Interesting, and quite complex.

jmuhops (669) - Winchester, Virginia, USA - JUN 7, 2009
Pours deep reddish brown with a frothy beige head. Subdued aroma of Belgian yeast, burnt candy sugar, and toffee-ish dark malt. The beer really pops on the palate. The malt drives the flavor, which feels a bit like a strong Belgian-tinted ESB. The honey is noticeable, as is the orange peel. The 9% alcohol is not. Very easy to drink. Rich, creamy mouthfeel.
