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.

UPDATED: MAR 3, 2013 750ml Bottle. The pour was a clear medium brown with an average (1-2 finger) light brown frothy head that did not have the greatest retention, reducing to a puddled film and had good streaky lacing. The aroma was of a nutty dark bread malt, a mild funky Belgian yeast and a very slight hint of floral hops with notes of citrus (orange), honey, chocolate, dark fruit (overripe grapes and plums), and clove. The taste was a little acidic and mildly sweet with notes of citrus and honey and a mild malty dark roast undertone at first, and then became lightly bitter and a tad yeasty with hints of chocolate, dark fruit and had a mildly spicy alcohol finish. The flavor lasted an average duration following the swallow, with a mild spicy yeast taste left behind along with a slight alcohol warming sensation. Mouthfeel was between light and medium in body with an oily texture and a nice lively carbonation. Overall I found this to be a nice smooth and easy to drink brew, although I do think it could have been a little more flavorful for a Belgian Style Strong Ale... www.facebook.com/KAJIIsBeerReviews

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.
