COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Here in Brooklyn weíve 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.

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - MAR 16, 2009
Pours a nice brown amber color with a bit of an off white head. Aroma is nut, caramel, some citrus, although Iím not sure if thatís from hops or the actual citrus used in the beer. Flavor is. . . interesting. Very spicy yet sweet and malty at the same time with a lot of toasted malt and then this weird citrus kick in the back. Really a heck of a lot going on here, but Iím not sure the flavors are playing well together just yet. Might need to get another bottle and let it age for awhile.

Poured a hazy reddish brown color with a small, light tan head that left nice lacing on the glass. Aroma of dark fruits, some roast, cocoa, caramel, and spices. Taste of ginger, some roast, chocolate, spices, honey, some smoke, and alcohol in the finish.

UPDATED: NOV 25, 2009 bottle poured a deep chestnut brown in color with a nice thick dark tan head that fell back to a nice thin layer. aroma has nice malt, candy sugar, honey, deep yeast, light fruit, and some almost chocolate touches. mouth feel is light and the carbonation plenty. flavor has some brown malt, rich yeast, light spice, and some over ripe dark fruit. I can pick the honey out and it has a nice floral quality but the orange peel is so slight I would never have found it on my own. this has all the things I would look for in the style and the blend and intensity is just right.
