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.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, - DEC 1, 2010
{thoughts} Bright and nimble dark Belgian strong ale; ingredient qualities feel to outshine yeast characteristics; alcohol bitterness detracts.

{elements} Dark, clear mahogany; tall, light tan cream. Caramel and dates, kola nut and heather in the aroma; spicy and airy nature; late arriving rose, sage and clove over dark toffee. Bright, spicy, soda flavors with a big carbonic acidity and a broad floral aftertaste; moderately sweet, powerfully acidic, bitterness lurking in the background. Mild alcohol bitterness, strong carbonation, slick texture, medium body. 75 cl bottle.

minutemat (3608) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2016
75cl bottle @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, March 16. Thanks to Mike for this, the final beer of the night. Pours deep hazy brown with tan head. Aroma is sweet molasses. Taste is dark fruits, brown sugar, molasses and manuka honey.. quite a complex intriguing beer.

BlackHaddock (5637) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - APR 19, 2016
Cork and caged 0.75 litre bottle at the April 2016 Shrewsbury Beer Geek meeting and shared between 5 of us: cheers Mike for this one. Red/Brown body, beige topping. Sweet molasses rule this brew, some dark fruits in the aroma but they get lost in the flavour as the molasses take over completely. My sweet tooth liked it, but I would have prefered to be able to pick up the honey and other ingredients as I sipped the beer, not just having a malty sugar rush.

ALIBALI (213) - Kiel, Schleswig-Holstein, GERMANY - FEB 5, 2016
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2016 Lecker auf jeden Fall. Aber was ist es denn nur? BSA, DAA oder einfach nur ein Dubbel Style SA? Wer weiss? Wer weiss? Der ganze Trunk sehr sehr solide und mir insgesamt ein wenig zu süss. Wenn am Ende der Bodensud kommt wird es nochmal komplex. The Big Bottle von Martins Weindepot in Kiel, 12 Euroletten.

JorisPPattyn (9050) - Ursel, BELGIUM - JAN 29, 2016
Huge, fine & dense cream-beige head, with lace over deep chestnut- coloured beer. Molasses, brown candi sugar, but also leafy, woody and spicy. Yeastesters. Chocolate, wood flavours. Caramel & candi sugar are there in the mouth - more even in the finish, but they do not dominate totally. Hint at spearmint - a bit like a milkchocolate version of After Eight. Medium bodied, slick, well-carbonated. Still less MF than the average Belgian-made strong ales. Aftertaste unveils the honey. A tad too sweet to my taste;

Seriously every bottle is slightly different but it’s very delicious. It pairs well with a fatty meal such as ribeye steak, marinated in crown and pineapple.

Bomber to a pint. Dark Amber brown with ample off white head. Sweet honey and orange zest. Layered spices and sweet clean finish. Very nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Vignale (2985) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JAN 1, 2016
Flaska från biet-deluxe.de. Ca 1,5 år gammal. Varmbron klar vätska med medelhöft skum. Söt frustig och maltig doft av torkad frukt, apstil, honung, lite anis. Söt smakbild men bra balanserad sötma. fina smaker av russin, fikon, honung, pastiller, karamell. Relativt komplex smak men fina nyanser och smaklager. Måttlig beska. Snygg och riktigt bra till en kraftig kötträtt.
