Much like Local 1, this had nothing on the label that let us know what it was. So I’m not going to lie to you, we cheated and looked it up and found out it was a dark Belgian ale. Nice. We like dark ales. Now I’m excited.
It poured out dark drown and almost stouted in the glass. It smelled like a Belgian ale, much like Local 1 did, but with some smokey and nutty elements. It tasted kinda like a dunkel, but without the weight of the yeast. It wasn’t as thick and it had more hop and fruitiness to it.
I liked this more than Local 1.
A 9% Belgian Dark Ale…this should be right up my alley
Not so much.
It was not bad, but it was a little too sweet for me and had a bit of a grape juice flavour. I was really surprised that I enjoyed Local 1 more than Local 2, but neither were bad.
