Local 2 - 2650

A- Murky dark brown with copper highlights. Trip finger light tan head. After several minutes I'm left with a quarter inch cap and sticky lacing.

S- Bananas, cinnamon, cloves, brown sugar, figs and raisins. There is a slight cherry and pepper. There is the smallest hint of alcohol. This really smells fantastic.

T- Subtle pepper spiciness quickly followed by vanilla, cinnamon and came sugar. Prevalent raisins with a touch of cherries. Alcohol is almost invisible.

M- Very effervescent, it's almost like a Chimay champagne. Sticky on lips.

O- Fantastic! Much better than Local 1 in my opinion. Could probably use a touch less carbonation though.

A: Massive 2" tan coloured head in my Duvel tulip over black/cola coloured liquid.

S: Yeast with some honey.

T: Floral, peppery and citrus hop flavours over biscuit, caramel and chocolate malt. The fig and plum dark fruit flavours take a back seat here.

M: Medium viscosity and a medium level of fine carbonation.

O: Drinkable, but definitely an American take on the style due to the malt. They almost need to have a separate category for this and Allagash Black and others like it such as Lighthouse Belgian Black.
