COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

jcr (2763) - Jasper, Indiana, USA - JUL 16, 2009
750 ml. Dark ruby brown body. Frothy, lasting off-white head that slowly diminishes to pools of foam. Complex aroma of dark ripe fruit, plum, figs, raisin, caramel, candy, sugar. Hints of smoke, vanilla, clove, cinammon. The flavor is moderately sweet, lightly bitter and lightly acidic. It finishes lightly to modeately sweet, lighty to moderately bitter and lightly acidic. Tastes of fruit and spice with a hint of alcohol. Intense flavor falls off at the very end though the bitterness lingers on well into the aftertaste. Medium body, watery texture and lively cabonation. Nicely crafted beer that starts sweet and fruity with a touch of spice and then turns bitter with a sweet, malty backbone.

Braudog (6834) - Yorktown, Virginia, USA - JUL 12, 2009
Caged and corked; poured a big muddy brown with a giant foamy top. The aroma is sweet and herbal, not unlike a potpourri pouch. This drinks very evenly, albeit sharply sweet. The spice is very well nuanced, making this easy to drink for just about anyone. (#3603, 12 July 2009)

tgncc (3145) - Bellmore, New York, USA - JUL 10, 2009
The aroma is like an abbey dubbel - malty, burnt caramel, spicy, orange peel, yeast. Attractive brown/red appearance with lots of tan colored head. The flavor is sweet, caramel, spicy, orange peel, pepper, alcohol. The finish is mostly alcohol warming, pepper. The alcohol is relatively well hidden until the finish. The mouthfeel is thin, and highly carbonated. Decent, if not exceptional.

aracauna (3680) - Georgia, USA - JUL 8, 2009
There’s a nicely spicy quality to the aroma and there’s a bit of peppery alcohol sparkling through that blends well. Moderately sweet from the malt. Foamy mouthfeel from the carbonation.

3.8
beerchugger (717) - North Canton, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2009
Pours a deep amber color with a nice head forming on top. The aroma is of sweet caramel malts, some yeast, dark fruits like figs and raisins, and most notably was the spice and citrus characteristics. The flavor followed suit and was very nice. Tasted of citrus and spice up front leading to the deeper flavors of raisins and figs. The finish was rather sweet and caramelly.

3.7
OleR (4849) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 6, 2009
From [email protected]øbenhavnske Øldage 2009. Clear mahoghny colored body with a ring of foam clinging to the glass. Complex and inviting aroma of Belgo-yeast, sweet citrus, refined malts and perfume. Taste is sweet fruity with a light acidic touch. Some toasted malts and yeast is noticable. A mild bitterness in the backbone. Alcohol is very well masked. Lively mouthfeel. A relatively short, dryish finish with fruity hops and mild spices. I like a lot.
