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.

smaynard6000 (1044) - 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 (1539) - 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 (8062) - 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 (2367) - 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 (363) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 11, 2015
Dark opaque caramel beer with a thick tan head that just wont 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.

boto (2143) - Granby, Connecticut, USA - JUL 4, 2015
750ml bottle: This one pours a fairly clear brown color. There was a bit of a fizzy tan head that didnt linger long or leave any lacing. Little bit of a lighter nose, but still good. Chocolate, slight roast, dark fruits, yeasty, slight spice. The taste is quite good. Some caramel malts, dark fruits, hint of spice. Touch of sweetness with a hint of dryness in the finish. Body is a touch light for a 9% beer. Still, very good.
