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.

750 ML Bottle-murky brown color w/a moderate tan head & great lacing. Sweet, cane sugar aroma. Very easy drinking brew, flavors of dark fruit, honey/molasses, cloves, roasted malt, some bread dough, a little pepper, & citrus peel. Alcohol very well hidden. long rich finish-even better than the #1, which I found quite enjoyable.

750 ml bottle. Pours a dark hazy brown caramel with a thick creamy light beige head. Peppery aroma with hints of cloves, bananas, dark fruit and yeast. Taste of light cloves and bananas with hints of dark fruit and yeast. Peppery flavor throughout.

ross (2075) - weddington, North Carolina, USA - MAY 4, 2009
Bottle. Looks like the one on the left. Dark colored pour with a tan head on it. Smell is sweet and full of dark fruits and yeast. Reminiscent of any Belgian beer I have had. Some citrus flavors in the nose provide an awkward smell. Taste is lively, surprisingly lighter body than initially thought. Smooth, easy to drink, and pretty good. Spicy in the finish as well. Not sure if this is better than local 1, but its certainly a good beer.

3fourths (7887) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - MAY 3, 2009
Sample from a 750ml bottle. Bottle conditioned, careful pour yields a faint haze in a dark brown body. Nose is dark candy sugar, clove, peppery, wheat, etc - some weizenbock characteristics present, even a small dose of banana. Smooth textured, some caramel and bran focused malts, maple sweetness. Mashed well, full body, little to no roughness, very polished. Good stuff.

BlackForestCO (976) - Aurora, Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2009
UPDATED: MAY 19, 2009 Bottle from j12601, thanks man! Poured a deep brown color with a 2 inch, thick off-white head that receded to a thick layer and left some sheets of lacing. Strong wheaty aroma with some soft chocolate, honey, a weird cleaner aroma, and some faint spiciness. Smooth, moderately sweet entry with a moderate wheatiness and some undertones of fruit (citrus peel) and a light spiciness (mostly pepper) that finishes with some faint sweetness. Over-carbonated and a bit spritzy on the palate, which didn’t seem to mend well with the style. Average beer, I will stick to Local 1.

hoppopotamus (260) - Santa Cruz, California, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Much darker than I expected, a true brown with a large frothy tan head that lasts and leaves lace. Interesting aroma, it’s got sweet, light fruits with a definite belgian yeast and spiciness and just a hint of dark malts. The flavor is also quite light and fruity, with some dark fruity maltiness as well. Mouthfeel quite thin, but suits the style. No hint of he 9% alcohol.

HopBackDoc (474) - Hatboro, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 2, 2009
Pours dark brown, almost black with a fluffy tan head. Strong aroma of citrus peel, malts and yeast. Flavor was roasted malts, light citrus, honey sweetness, peppery spice and a mild hop finish. Medium carbonation and body. A really fine brew that goes down easy and satisfies.

NJBeerman013 (1043) - Hamilton Twp., New Jersey, USA - MAY 2, 2009
750 ml bottle. Pours a dark ruby brown in color with a huge fluffy head. The aroma is lightly floral and fruity. The flavor is sweet, caramel, honey, juicy fruits, and a light note of citrus. It has a light carbonation and medium body.

RCL (2030) - Waltham, Massachusetts, USA - MAY 1, 2009
Cork popping unleashed a brief blast of sweet, dark caramel and honey aroma. Quite dark pour. Delicious rich flavor with a good level of carbonation and a velvety mouthfeel. Light notes of citrus on the finish. Very nice.

Very tasty. Had this one last Thursday, part way through my stretch from hell in school, kind of a celebration but kind of an attempt to drown my sorrows. Great beer though.
