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.

BigBen2120 (688) - Derry, New Hampshire, USA - AUG 22, 2009
750ml bottle purchased at Whole Foods in Portland, Maine. Pours a murky red-brown body with nearly two inches of persistent khaki-colored head. Citrus and pith come through loud and clear in the aroma, with hints of brown sugar, chocolate, and toffee. Citrus and pith hit early, with a sweet orange juice quality, followed by some brown sugar with chocolate notes and a tinge of roastiness to balaince things out. Medium bodied with full effervescent carbonation (no doubt from bottle conditioning). Relatively dry and clean toward the finish. Overall, a great Belgian strong dark. Not the best Ive had, but an extremely good drinkable one (despite the complexity and ABV), and a suitable follow-up to Brooklyin Local 1! Awesome

Impressive for a dark belgian. Sweet and fruity aromas. Full of warm and dried fruit flavors. Explodes in the mouth with a great finish.

CapnCascade (116) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 19, 2009
Dark ruby-brown pour, dense tan head with excellent retention and lacing. Complex aromas of Demerara sugar, sweet malt, dry herbs, and feet. Palate develops burnt sugar, candy sugar, dark fruit, vanilla, and bittering hops. Light, dry, herbal finish; creamy mouthfeel with low carbonation. Rich and most drinkable.

roder60 (1289) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 19, 2009
Pours a slightly hazy medium brown with a thin layer of foamy tan head. Aroma is bubblegum, dark cherries, and spicey yeast. Flavor is brown sugar, raisins, plums, and a slightly roasted malt base. Warming finish. Overall, enjoyable.

Goodgrief (2017) - Middletown, Delaware, USA - AUG 18, 2009
Pour was amber/brown with an aroma of syrup. The flavor was that of belgian fruity malts, honey, molasses, brown sugar and raisins. Mouthfeel was really carbonated. A decent brew. No complaints, no wows.

DalzAle (2030) - Eden Prairie, Minnesota, USA - AUG 18, 2009
Bottle. Slightly hazy brownish pour with plenty of foam. Aroma is yeasty, sweet malt and honey. Flavor is tons of malt, honey, peppery and effervescent on the finish. Ok brew, especially if you like sweeter belgian style brews.

can8ianben (1530) - State College, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 18, 2009
A strong darker Belgian ale. Reddish in color with a thin tan head. Tastes of raisins, caramel apples, and Belgian yeast. Very pleasant as it warms although not a very strong aroma.

phaleslu (9925) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - AUG 14, 2009
Bottle. Pours brown with a small tan head. Aroma of malt, yeast, sugar. Flavor of malt, yeast, toffee, toast, brown sugar, fig, and alcohol as it slides down. Full bodied with a good amount of carbonation and a bite to it. More straightforward than a lot of other Belgian ales, but thats not necessarily a bad thing. A tasty Belgian that would go well with a lot of dishes.

Bottle. Tasty beer. Pours dark brown with thick beige head. Nice malty aroma with hints of honey. Taste of more caramel malts, vanilla, honey. Light body, very drinkable.

nimbleprop (8082) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 12, 2009
Scored a bottle of this from Chevy Chase Wine in DC. Thick tan head atop a transparent dark brown body. Aroma of Belgian yeast, dark fruits, bubble gum, some citrus. Flavor is nice and the honey really comes through while not being overly sweet, some Belgian candy sugar, Belgian yeast, dark fruits, flowers. Full bodied but drinkable.
