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.

Copenhagen beer festival. Sweet and spicy, like a Belgian Christmas beer. Cinnamon, cloves. Nice, but not outstanding.

Dark brown pour with rocky tan head. Sweet fruits, oranges, malts and yeast aromas make me giddy. Body is rich and full with flavors of spices, roasty malts, hops and love...very enjoyable.

TaktikMTL (7034) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 26, 2009
Bouteille de 750 ml, avec bouchon de liège, partagée lors d’une dégustation Ratebeer Montréal chez MartinT. Arôme: Odeur de caramel avec une pointe d’épices. Apparence: La couleur est ambrée-brunâtre. Présence d’une mince col mousseux et d’une fine dentelle sur le verre. Saveur: Goût d’agrumes avec une pointe de clou de Girofle et de caramel. Durée moyenne de l’arrière goût. Palette: Le corps est moyen avec une texture légèrement minérale. Moyenne effervescence en bouche. Légère présence d’épices en arrière goût. (Rating #2423)

CBF09. From tap. Pours cloudy dark orange with a small white head. Aroma is light spiced and hoppy. Light roasted too. Spiced and yeasty flavoured with a distinct hoppy and light spiced finish. Nice and simple Belgian ale.

MartinT (9319) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2010 My Bottom Line:
Fruity and spicy yeast notes manage delicate chocolate and herbal hops in this authentic, nicely attenuated Belgian-style Strong Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A fluffy head of foam decorates the drak brown.
-This felt like Trois-Pistoles light at times, even though it’s pretty much the same abv.
-Some alcohol is felt, but it’s never bothersome.
-The important yeast character feels a tad vegetal at times.
-This is as well made as most Brooklyn products, but in the end, I didn’t feel compelled to go back for more. Local 1 was much more distinctive and satisfying, in my tastes.

Bottles.

Ungstrup (34308) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2009
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with an orangey head. The aroma is sweet malty combined with notes of fruit and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, fruit, alcohol, and honey, leading to a dry and spicy finish. Interesting.
