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.

{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.

Bottle. Pours a murky reddish-brown with a huge fluffy off-white head that lingers a long time. Light aroma, yeasty and sweet, with grass, citrus, honey, malt, spices. Taste is smooth and almost creamy, lots of honey sweetness, malt, dark fruits, and sharper spicy yeast on top. Lingering sweet spice. Nice.

Pours a deep amber color with an off white head leaving moderate lacing. Aroma of currants, yeast and a slight hoppiness. Floral almost fruity flavor up front with notes of the Belgian yeast. Very easy drinking Belgian string ale, abv is misleading as you wouldn’t know it was over 7%.

kevinator (891) - 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!
