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.

Tmoney99 (10080) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAR 18, 2009
Bottle From Jungle Jims. Poured clear brown color with a large frothy off-white head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy sweet spicy aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium to heavy complex sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where met with another of the top active bottled beers for style.

crossovert (6352) - Illinois, USA - APR 8, 2014
75oml bottle. Violent cork. Dark brown pour with a head that recedes to about 1 cm and sticks. Smell is tangy, raspberries, dark fruits, black licorice. Flavor is a bludgeoning of dark fruits, figs, raisins, and some spice again with the licorice. Super-carbed. Not bad.

BOSSbrewer (1313) - Arkansas, USA - APR 2, 2014
Pours a medium dark brown with two fingers of creamy tan head that persists. Aroma of malt and some dark fruits. Flavor follows and is somewhat dry. Finishes dry. Nice but not great

RickTheRick (194) - Montréal, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 30, 2014
Une mousse beige généreuse se dresse au-dessus d’une robe brune et trouble avec de légers rayons rougeâtres. Un nez sucré, floral et fruité épate les voies nasales, le miel dominant tout juste les fruits rouges confits. Le miel est également de la partie en bouche, enveloppé d’une belle rondeur maltée. Les fruits secs ajoutent une bonne dose de sucré à l’expérience, pour notre plus grand plaisir. Un peu trop pétillante à mon goût pour le style, elle surprend toutefois plus elle tempère avec une pointe d’agrumes qui procure une très douce acidité vraiment chouette.

BadAprilia1000 (215) - Sevierville, Tennessee, USA - MAR 18, 2014
Pours a dark brownish color with a thin beige head. Aroma is semi fruity, very faint, maybe on old bottle but very weak. Taste is very good. Deep malt structure and bready on the tongue, maybe some dark stone fruits. Very smooth velvety texture coats your mouth pleasantly. Just a fantastic beer that would be great to session (if it weren’t 9%).

desurfer (1190) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - MAR 12, 2014
750mL bottle on "clearance" at Publix for $3.00. Score! Pours an almost opaque mahogany with a pillowy tan head. Aroma heavy on sweet maltiness and candy. Flavor comes through with the distinctive Belgian yeast character alongside ripe fruit and a mild hoppiness. Palate is dry, somewhat thin, with plenty of carbonation. Good.
