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.

nbutler11 (1267) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - APR 29, 2009
Bottle purchased at the brewery. Pours coffee in color with an oatmeal head. Smells similar to sun tan lotion - oddly floral. Complex in flavor. Tastes primarily of prune, clove, and salted potato. Original - I’ll give it that.

Christian (11027) - Odense, DENMARK - MAY 18, 2009
Brown with a lasting tan head. Fruity Belgian aroma with a little caramel. Sweetish caramel and fruity flavour. Lacks some complexity for 9% beer. Especially since I had it right after the more exciting Local 1

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 21, 2009
Bottle 75 cl. Slightly hazy amber golden with an off-white head. Intense aroma of overripe fruit and yeast. Medium body, heavy carbonation and lots of overripe fruit being the dominant flavour combined with some brown sugar. Rather alcoholic finish. 160509

MartinT (7746) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - MAY 24, 2009
UPDATED: NOV 11, 2010 My Bottom Line:
Fruity and spicy yeast notes manage delicate chocolate and herbal hops in this authentic, nicely attenuated Belgian-style Strong Ale.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A fluffy head of foam decorates the drak brown.
-This felt like Trois-Pistoles light at times, even though it’s pretty much the same abv.
-Some alcohol is felt, but it’s never bothersome.
-The important yeast character feels a tad vegetal at times.
-This is as well made as most Brooklyn products, but in the end, I didn’t feel compelled to go back for more. Local 1 was much more distinctive and satisfying, in my tastes.

Bottles.

Copenhagen beer festival. Sweet and spicy, like a Belgian Christmas beer. Cinnamon, cloves. Nice, but not outstanding.

Rune (7775) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUN 1, 2009
Big bottle, no. 0919, topped by a wire cradle and a cork shared at the splendid beer-dinner happening with Garrett Oliver at Slotskroen in Hillerød. Beige foamy head over a mahogany body. Aroma of spiced fruits. Comprehensive sweet flavour of orange shells, caramel and chocolate malts added by dark honey. Masked alcohol. Sweet, but a fine partner to the Brewmaster Carbonade Flamande (14.05.2009).

Quevillon (2452) - Boisbriand, Quebec, CANADA - JUN 5, 2009
Bu au Mondial 09, le 3 juin (#3). Brune noisette, petit collet. Arome très épicé et sucré, avec de l’avoine malté crèmeux. Goût plutôt céréal avec des petits fruits sûrettes, malte sec. Très bien mais pas comme Local 1!
