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.

Tasting at a beerfest [Disclaimer: This was tasted along with many, many other beers during a tasting at Julios. Some of the details are a little hazy]. These guys know what they are doing. Good stuff.

bottle at JK O’Donnells - Pours dark amber with a moderate sized light tan head. The aroma is of malt, dark fruit, and honey. It tastes of sweet malt along with that dark fruit. The honey is also quite noticeable without being too much. Some mild hops come through to provide balance. It’s medium to full bodied and has a lively palate. Really nice brew.

15-May-2009 Bottle at Ølfestivalen poured by Garett Oliver himself. Brown with good head. Malty, Abbey ale-ish but without the dusty tree taste. Lovely beer.

Skinnyviking (7150) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - MAY 16, 2009
Bottle. The cork came off the bottle with a small explotion. Head medium high but lasting white and fluffy. Dark red brown almost black body. Aroma of fruit and prunes with a touch of caramel and honey. Flavor of roasted barley malt with fruit, made pretty sweet by caramel prunes and honey. Little hops bitterness. High carbonation. Alcohol well hidden. The fizzyness gave a mouthfeel like champagne.

AgentSteve (1627) - SF Bay Area, California, USA - MAY 15, 2009
Pours a deep ruby red with a three finger fizzy head that persists. Nose is candied sugar and sweet dark fruits. The flavor is a bit sweet and a touch medicine like, with a bit of a sharp mouthfeel. Sweet finish.

looks like a dubbel, but unlike any ive ever had. strange sweetness throughout the usual suspects of figs, prunes, etc... stays throughout. super enjoyable and wonderfully complex.

Not as good as the number 1. Um yeah I think there is a hole in my ceiling from the cork that came out of the bottle. Pour was a copper color with an aroma of apples and strong honey. Flavor was much the same some grass and floral notes in there. Okay nothing amazing.
