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.

Not a bad beer at all. Dark brown Quad type pour with plenty of head and some residual lacing. Nose is a little musty but otherwise the dark fruits, yeast, and malt are all accounted for. Taste follows the nose with maybe a touch of honey coming through as well.

I poured it from the bottle into a glass. It pours a red and brown color with a big, beige head and lacing. The aroma is brown sugar, dark fruit, and Belgian yeast. The taste is raisin, prune, date, brown sugar, honey, and spice. Its got a nice, subtle sweetness. It drinks much smoother than the alcohol content would suggest. This is a very nice beer.

Shag (2893) - Chattanooga, Tennessee, USA - FEB 4, 2017
A brown color with a beige head. The aroma contains some honey, caramel, chocolate, floral notes, and raisins. The flavor is slightly sweet but mostly dry with some caramel, spiced fruit, honey, A bit of booze maybe like a brandy show up in there. Overall this is a nice Belgian strong.

Dark mahogany pour with light white tannish head... aroma of brown sugar, dark fruits, Belgian malts, nuts... flavor is more dry than you'd expect, very light and yeasty, dark Belgian malts, dark fruits, lots of funky yeast on the palate... decent ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BeardedAvenger (493) - Addlestone, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 8, 2016
07/10/16. Brooklen event at Wine Rack, West Byfleet. Initial strong and sour aroma. A sugary sweetness then develops. Alcohol evident when swirled. Dark brown with a red tint. Off white medium sized head. Surprisingly light bodied. Sweet: spoces and fruit. Dry finish. But surprisingly bland. Just has no depth to it.

radio_nowhere (1454) - Maryland, USA - JUN 10, 2016
Corked/caged bomber into tulip glass, very deep ruby-amber color with tan head. Aroma notes of caramel malt, spicy Belgian yeast and some light dried fruits. Taste adds more Belgian spice character, clove, white pepper, brown sugar and light cocoa towards the end. Medium-heavy body, moderate-heavy carbonation, lively, tad sticky with sweet light cocoa finish. Pretty solid Belgian strong, drinks much lighter than its ABV.
