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.

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.

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.

dchmela (2766) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUN 6, 2009
Courtesy Ian. Pours a nice dark brown with a frothy tan head. Tart candi apple aroma. Sweet malt bitter, caramel and dark fruit taste with a surprisingly nice kick. Solid offering from Brooklyn.

Quevillon (2605) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2009
Bu au Mondial 09, le 3 juin (#3). Brune noisette, petit collet. Arome très épicé et sucré, avec de l’avoine malté crèmeux. Goût plutôt céréal avec des petits fruits sûrettes, malte sec. Très bien mais pas comme Local 1!

MaltDawg (1344) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - JUN 5, 2009
(Sample Date: 3/14/2009 Source:Other) Belgian yeast character with a roasty grainy maltyness. Dark almost opaque with a small fine white head. Roasty with honey and caramel sweetness, and peppery yeast character. Light body with high carbonation. Finish is medium lightly fruity, with a light spicy residual bitterness.

CUJO (383) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - JUN 3, 2009
Bottle #3038: I was about to rate this beer poorly, until I realized it was a Belgian Strong. Aroma is nice, just as advertised on the bottle: dark sugars and fruits, yeast and malt. Great color, very deep red and brown tones, off white thick head. First taste reveals the fruits though they are very dark, cooked. No citrus to speak of as the label suggests, but dark and bitter chocolate is available. Very high carbonation that scrubs away the taste, leaving the alcohol finish. Good for the style, maybe just not my style.
