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.

xnoxhatex (1305) - Grand Rapids/Chicago, Michigan, USA - JUL 21, 2009
Bottle thanks to Gerrit during the American Wheat brew session. Coudy to murky dark brown with medium to large, creamy beige head with some lacing. Aroma is raisin and dark fruit, light alc, sweeter dark malt, big yeast spice. Flavor is dark fruit, light almost nonexistent alc, prune, a little chalk, toast, tobacco, cola. Medium to light body, good carbonation. Pretty flavorful and solid and similar to an abbey dubbel but as it warms it gets thinner and less interesting.

Type: 750ml (25.4-oz.) bottle Glass: Karl Strauss 26th anniversary snifter glass From: Eddy’s Beverage Inc. in Saratoga Springs, N.Y. Price: $8.99 Purchased: July 14, 2015 Consumed: Aug. 15, 2015 Misc.: Born on July 21, 2014; Wire hood Poured a dark caramel brown color with 3-to-4 fingers of khaki-tan, rocky head. A few spots of foamy lacing on the sides of the glass. Average retention. (Sight - 3.75) Smelled caramel, toffee, faint chocolate, dark fruit, plum, brown sugar, light molasses, grape juice, purple grapes, red apples, pear juice and juicy berries. Very nice. (Smell - 4.25) Taste wasn’t quite as good as the nose. Got dark fruit in grape juice, plum, purple grapes and red apples. Also caramel, toffee, brown sugar, faint molasses, light chocolate, berries - blueberry/blackberry like - and some booziness late. (Taste - 3.88) Medium body. Oily texture. Average carbonation. Long finish. (Feel - 4.13) Overall this was a pretty good beer, just not quite there in my opinion. Would still have it again though. (Overall - 3.88) 3.97 89 B+

smaynard6000 (802) - Apopka, Florida, USA - AUG 9, 2015
Pours a hazy and very dark brown color with a massive foamy beige head and lively carbonation. Aroma is spicy with some hints of plum and banana. Complex flavor consisting of plum and raisin notes, along with some chocolate and spices. Medium-to-full bodied with somewhat sweet finish. Very nuanced and enjoyable.

mikske79 (1310) - Puerto Plata, DOMINICAN REPUBLIC - AUG 9, 2015
De geur is heel lekker, doet wat denken aan de geur van een rode Chimay. De kleur is redelijk donker en er komt een mooie schuimkraag. De smaak is verrassend lekker als je het beschouwd als een Amerikaans bier. Voor het met de belgische bieren te vergelijken: je kan het vergelijken met een iets mindere versie van een Rochefort. De smaak leunt er dicht bij aan, maar toch proef je duidelijk een verschil. Al bij al wel een lekker bier. Cadeau gekregen van mijn schoonbroer in NY

solidfunk (5464) - Washington D.C., Washington DC, USA - AUG 6, 2015
Well done and well balanced. Light florals with hint of caramel. Hazy brown pour with decent head. A hint of coppery aroma. Light sweet and sour finish. I slightly prefer the local 1. Bottle.

sir__v (1124) - Lille, FRANCE - AUG 5, 2015
Bottle from Guillaume - thanks - Color: deep brown beer with no carbonation and heavy brown head. Very nice beer. Smell: domination of sweet and red fruits as grapes and raspberry. Notes of malt and sweet. Finish hoppy. Taste: good palate and nice body. Good red fruits taste, and malt. Lack of body and caramel notes. Sweet problem and domination of alcohol taste. Finish hoppy. Aftertaste: dry alcohol bitterness and red fruits. Global nice beer but with the lack of sweet the balance is not nice for this kind of beer style!

Helsdon (300) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2015
Dark opaque caramel beer with a thick tan head that just won’t quit. Caramel malty nose with molasses, spice, a touch of honey just because I was looking for it, a flat yeast nose, and a touch of zee booze. Solid doubel taste, ripe cherries, molasses, thick caramel malt, bready yeast. Really nice caramel finish. Dangerously drinkable.
