3.9 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A: Huge grape fruit note. Alcohol sweetness. Plum... maybe a hint of banana as well.
A: Super dark reddish brown. Huge head.... (but not like from Regular Show...)
T: Taste is actually pretty weak... although not off-putting. Super subtle flavors of grape, malt, clove a bit maybe? Alcohol is huge in the finish. Thereís not anything wrong with it, per se, but it just doesnít bring anything big. Itís odd with all the light flavors that the alcohol isnít out of control (well it is a little bit but not bad...)
P: Very dry on the palate. Very very winelike: subtle flavors. Delicate. Medium body. Sits well.
Overall this beer is strange.... for the style this is killer, but as just a beer, itís ok. The beer is extremely controlled but are also very very light. Drinks like an champagne with a tick more must.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Appearance: dark brown with cherry-red highlights and a thick, creamy tan head. Aroma: caramel, vanilla, yeasty spice, with dark fruits in light syrup. Taste: dark brown sugar, caramel, graham cracker, cherries, a hint of citrus, chocolate, clove, candi sugar, and plums. Finish: sweet, smooth, and surprisingly light. Notes: Looked and smelled like a dubbel, tasted sweet but not too much so, and the palate was surprisingly easy drinking for a 9% abv beer. Itís alchemy in a bottle.

The Brooklyn Local 2 is a great American refermented ale that resembles some dark Belgian dubbels. The beer is a dark ruby amber with a large foamy white head that releases a sweet and tangy tangerine aroma. The first sip reveals a lime bite that punches through with a rich and creamy malt body that carries a yeast, caramel, and honey sweetness. It finishes slightly salty and dry in a way makes you want another sip.

UPDATED: APR 29, 2013 P√• √łlsmaking med Garrett Oliver. M√łrk brun med beige fint skum. Fruktig og balansert aroma, med brent sukker og honning. Mer rosin og gj√¶r i munnen med tydelig alkohol. Middels bitterhet og s√łdme. God fyldig ettersmak. (Den Gode Nabo, 28.04.13)

Pours dark brown, tan head. Crisp and smoother than expected for a 9%. Seemed a bit high in carbonation and more bitter than others in this style, but still excellent. I recommend serving around 55 and after breathing for a while so the bubbles dont interfere with the flavor. It got much better on the third glass after warming and breathing.

Bottle - Brown sugar and some dark fruits along with the some yeast in the nose. Very foamy but settles nicely to a dark brown with a thin head. Brown sugar, dark fruits and a bit of spice. A really nice Belgian strong.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
0,75 l bottle, shared with buddies, BierDeLuxe online store.
Pours a dark orange-brown with significant haze, creamy tan head and lace. Aroma of malts and caramel, some belgian yeasts. Taste opens with malts, caramel, after a while the hops and yeast arrives, dry finish. High alcohol taste, too much sweetness for me. The No.1 was better;-)
