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.

zach8270 (4022) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 30, 2009
(bottle - corked & caged 750 ml) Dark brown with a dirty looking tan head. Aroma is a lot of dark malts and some spices. Flavor is sweet and fruity with a good amount of raisins, citrus, chocolate, yeast, and spice. Some hops near the end. Very fizzy.

Dogbrick (11880) - Columbus, Ohio, USA - JUN 30, 2009
Sample at AleFest Columbus (06/27/09): This brew pours a hazy brownish-amber color with a medium and foamy beige head that dissipates slowly. Rings of lacing on the glass. Roasty aroma with dark malts and fruits. Medium body with flavors of roasted malt, raisins and citrus. Spiced hops are present, as is the alcohol. The finish is rich and fruity with a malt and yeast aftertaste. Pretty good all around.

Clear dark brown body, big bubbled head; Quite good fruity nose, redbrown aromas, very nice; Huge carbonation in lightly sweet body, pleasant; Long finish with lots of aroma. Quite good and very well made, but nothing more then that.

cking (1175) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - JUN 24, 2009
Dark brown color pours opaque and produces a fluffy light brown head. Hearty lacing surrounds the sides of the glass. Sweet, dark, fruit aroma containing raisins, cherries and even a hint of raspberry. Filling and enjoyable, high carbonation thats prickly. The Belgian yeast characteristic really pulls through in the flavor combining the rich dark fruits with a sweet, dense malt backbone. Nicely crafted, very enjoyable.

EastCoaster (122) - USA - JUN 24, 2009
Had at the Bierre Mondialle from the bottle as a taste only regret is not having a bottle in the cellar. Rich in malts with the contribution from the hops present but one had to search for it.

MoDog (927) - Griffith, Indiana, USA - JUN 24, 2009
750ml caged and corked bottle served in a tulip. Hazy brown pour with a thick head of tight, tan foam that lingered for a bit. A small amount of slippery lacing was left around the glass. The aroma included raisin, caramel, orange peel, spicy yeast, and also an underlying note of chocolate. The flavor had dark fruits, raisin, caramelized sugar, orange, red apple skins, and a hint of chocolate and honey. Medium to full-bodied with a moderate amount of prickly carbonation. Complex and quite drinkable. Nice beer.

yngwie (16590) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 23, 2009
Bottle, 75cl corked, shared by the brewer. Its a semi-clear, copper-colored beer with a nice-looking off-white to beige head. Dried fruits, a hint of roasted malts, citrusy hops and a tiny note of alcohol on the nose. Sweet, caramel flavor with dried fruits and a nice citrusy hoppyness. Good bitterness too. Medium body, nicely carbonated. Pleasant bitterness in the finish. I prefer Local 1 to this one, but its still a really good beer, dangerously easy to drink, and quite tasteful too. (090515)

CaptBier (323) - Birmingham, Alabama, USA - JUN 20, 2009
Bottled. A hazy amber beer with an orangey head. The aroma is sweet malty combined with notes of fruit and alcohol. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, fruit, alcohol, and honey, leading to a dry and spicy finish. Interesting. It was a little hard to drink though due to the carbonation. It burned a little.
