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.

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. There’s not anything wrong with it, per se, but it just doesn’t bring anything big. It’s odd with all the light flavors that the alcohol isn’t 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, it’s ok. The beer is extremely controlled but are also very very light. Drinks like an champagne with a tick more must. P:

BeardedAvenger (257) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2016
07/10/16. Brooklen event at Wine Rack, West Byfleet. Initial strong and sour aroma. A sugary sweetness then develops. Alcohol evident when swirled. Dark brown with a red tint. Off white medium sized head. Surprisingly light bodied. Sweet: spoces and fruit. Dry finish. But surprisingly bland. Just has no depth to it.

toscanoigor (111) - Belo Horizonte, BRAZIL - JUN 17, 2016
Cerveja marrom-avermelhada, espuma bege de baixíssima formação. Aroma de caramelo, cravo. O sabor é doce, com pouco amargor, um pouco picante, com predomínio do malte e um pouco de ameixa/passas. Corpo médio, boa carbonatação, bem saborosa.

radio_nowhere (1407) - Maryland, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Corked/caged bomber into tulip glass, very deep ruby-amber color with tan head. Aroma notes of caramel malt, spicy Belgian yeast and some light dried fruits. Taste adds more Belgian spice character, clove, white pepper, brown sugar and light cocoa towards the end. Medium-heavy body, moderate-heavy carbonation, lively, tad sticky with sweet light cocoa finish. Pretty solid Belgian strong, drinks much lighter than its ABV.

Very nicely done. My bottle poured with a big head. The aroma had the spices and sweetness. I think the honey mellowed it well. Very easy drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
