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

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 (450) - 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 (1449) - 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.

Very nicely done. My bottle poured with a big head. The aroma had the spices and sweetness. I think the honey mellowed it well. Very easy drinking. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
