COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Here in Brooklyn weve 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.

thebeernurse (10) - atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 8, 2015
A Brooklyn Local so good it seems to have altogether stopped the series. Sometimes, diving into a large bottle can be daunting, but this one is truly smooth, with great honeyish elements that I find hard to refrain from angrily chugging. Fridge beers come and fridge beers go, but this is a stand-by, almost always on hand for me and my thirst. Thats all.

ttoadee (787) - Austin, Texas, USA - JAN 26, 2015
Dark brown pour, solid tan head. Nose is yeast, dark fruit, and a splash of alcohol. Bittersweet. Middle is cherries and dark roasted malt. Finish shows a bit more alcohol, and some lightly woody hop character. Went really nice with a pork barley stew.

Jamesonpatz (23) - Memphis, Tennessee, USA - JAN 15, 2015
Poured from a 750ml bottle into a chalice. A - brew smells fruity, spicy, a bit malty, and boozy. A - Pours beautifully. Very dark Amber and an appropriate level of murkiness for a Belgian. The light tan head looks silky as ever! T - taste is fruity and boozy up front, which continues through the middle of the sip while revealing some maltiness. The finish reflects spices and a hint of pine. P - Feels wonderful in my mouth! Beer is full-bodied with a tight carbonation. Smooth, but very bubbly. O - Definitely a great beer. I am a very big fan of Belgian ales and this one didnt disappoint. Its true to the Belgian strong dark ale style--Big, fruity, spicy, and boozy. It doesnt push the styles boundaries by any means. But I dont think thats what the brewers at Brooklyn set out to do with this beer. So with that, I consider this beer a success! "Never turn your back on your beer."

artmcd8 (1927) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 1, 2015
750 ml bottle. Pours a slightly cloudy deep brown with a huge light brown head. Id say over carbed a bit. Aromas of sweet malts, light dark fruits. Taste is sweet with a clean finish, slightly metallic.

erickok (3972) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - DEC 19, 2014
Brown body, clean. Brown malts, bready, spice, dark sweetness. American yeast but not dull at all. Not extreme but well made. Perhaps a bit too much co2 in the nose. Looks and drinks great though. Well developed! (Bottle from Saveur Bire)
