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.

Corked bottle from Maruhn, Darmstadt
Dark brown color; big but frothy head. The aroma is yeasty, dusty, with caramel, some vegetables; vulgar. The excessive carbonation spoils the mouthfeel; quite good caramel and mild chocolate flavor; some Belgian yeast action; moderate residual sweetness; correct bitterness. Ordinary.
