CARAFA Type 2 - A German roasted specialty malt made from high-quality spring barley.  Carefully roasted to add espresso-like bouquet, cofee and chocolate flavors, and a mild but noticable roasted aftertaste.  Produces opaque beer with coffee-brown color.  Similar to "Chocolate" style roasted malts, can be used in any dark lager or ale. (Color: 413-450 Lovibond (1100-1200 EBC))

Where malt-based bitterness is not desired, consider CARAFA Special Type 2 (dehusked) which produces rich color, body, flavor and aroma without the harsh flavors and astringency typical of dark-colored grains.
