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.

Not a bad beer at all. Dark brown Quad type pour with plenty of head and some residual lacing. Nose is a little musty but otherwise the dark fruits, yeast, and malt are all accounted for. Taste follows the nose with maybe a touch of honey coming through as well.

leghorn99 (167) - Livorno, ITALY - NOV 29, 2015
Versa nel bicchiere color marrone scuro, luminosa anche nella sua parziale “oscurità”, regala subito un bel cappello di schiuma, compata, beige e dall’ottima persistenza. Una vivacità olfattiva che evade prontamente dal bicchiere: miele, zucchero candito, caramello, cioccolato, agrumi (scorza d’arancia), frutta secca e frutta scura (uva passa e prugna), malto ed effluvi di lievito che portano con sé profumi di banana e spezie (chiodi di garofano e coriandolo). Al gusto colpisce la sua frizzantezza, attacca bocca e palato da tutte le parti, pizzica senza mai oltrepassare l’unico necessario confine: quello della bevibilità. Vengono riproposti i sentori percepiti al naso con un buon sapore di malto, mescolato a molteplici toni fruttati (ciliegia, uva passa e prugna in primis), di miele, zucchero ed agrumi. Le bucce d’arancia si ritrovano alla fine della bevuta assieme a note leggermente terrose. Il luppolo cavalca tutta la degustazione e regala una sterzata fresca e pungente nel lungo retrogusto.

Flaska hos brooklyn brewery. Mörkt brun med beige skum. Lite syrlig doft med röda bär. Lätt söt syrlighet och belgisk jäst i smaken.

Large bottlle. Pours dark maroon/brown, huge off white head, lots of lacing. Aroma is dark fruit, caramel, wine grapes, honey. Flavor is so faintly sour, yeast, dark fruit, malt, honey, chocolate. Dry finish. Really quite tasty. Maybe not as good as the Local 1.
