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.

750ml bottle, pours deep red / brown with a light head. Aromas of caramel, cherries and dark fruit crumble, full bodied and finish is fruity, sweet with a little bittering balance and dryness. Nice Belgian strong.

kevinator (864) - The Colony, Texas, USA - JUL 15, 2014
Good but I was expecting a little more. Bready and grainy malt aroma. Almost like a Dubbel. Murky brown color with a medium head. Weighty palate with fullness and smooth. Flavors were very malty with a hint of Belgian yeast. This character became more pronounced as it warmed. One glass at a time is enough.

Brunröd/röd med stort ljusbrunt skum. Doftar karamellmalt och jäst! Smakar mycket karamellmalt och belgiskt med lite smak av alkohol!

wvhoran (82) - Rotterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUL 2, 2014
Bottle. Dark amber-brown with a large, frothy off-white head. Aroma is caramel, hoppy, spicy. Flavour is sweet caramel, yeasty, spicy, overripe fruits. Raisins. Probably a little over carbonated. Nice though.

UXO (124) - CANADA - JUL 1, 2014
Pours a somewhat murky medium brown with a fat fluffy tan head, great retention, and heavy, sticky lacing. Nose is mild, dark sweet malt, faintly spicy, and very little hops. Taste is honey-like sweetness, dark fruit (raisins and cherries), chocolate, and slight spiciness on a sweet dark malt base. Medium bodied, with a smooth and mellow texture and moderate sustained carbonation with a mildly bitter finish and mild warming. Dark and sweet, very reminiscent of a Belgian Dubbel like Chimay Red, but with more pronounced warming. Almost as good as a Chimay Red, in fact, with perhaps just slightly less complexity and depth of flavour. Certainly the nose could stand to be more pronounced, though the flavour does go a long way to making up for that.

Chadski4 (98) - Los Angeles, California, USA - JUL 1, 2014
Nice light tan head, fairly slow to dissipate. Aroma could have been stronger and more distinct but the caramel, spices and cola flavors are very good without too much booziness. Definitely a standout.

Holmen1 (2293) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JUN 24, 2014
0,75 flaske med champagnekork (og -smell!) fra polet i Walkendorffsgate: flott skum og åpningslyden er stemningsskapende. Fin aroma av mørke bær, og den slanke men saftige smaken med solbær/bjørnebær og jordbær gjør denne til en meget lettdrikkelig men desverre altfor dyr nytelse. Lett honningsødme og forsiktig bitterhet. God, og jordbærpreget med sjokolade er behagelig i forkant når temperaturen stiger i glasset.

Lele (87) - ITALY - JUN 23, 2014
Ottima birra, dal gusto complesso, anche grazie alla presenza nella birra di zucchero e miele grezzo, insieme a scorze di arancia dolce. Insieme sono percepibili anche sentori fruttati, caramello e cioccolato. Da provare.

generallee08 (595) - New York, USA - JUN 21, 2014
The body is almost opaque and has a dark murky brown color with deep crimson highlights. Near the edges of the glass there are some streams of fine carbonation rushing to the surface. The pour produced a nice tall, thick and foamy head. It slowly fades down to a thin cap that hangs on till the last sip. Its aroma has full nose of dark sweet malt, funky yeast, spice and a hint of honey and hops. The flavor has a sweet dark malty base with some pleasant sweet honey, tart cherry and other dark estery fruit notes. Funky yeast, mild alcohol and some light spicy notes and add even more complexity. In the finish the hops pop out and add some mild bitterness. The texture is smooth and mellow with soft yet active carbonation.
