Drink delicious beer and save the bees!
Way back when I used to live in Brooklyn (aka like 6 months ago), going to Coney Island was one of my favorite little getaways. It’s just a really cool, really weird, really fun place. Coney Island Brewing Co. is no exception to the locale’s flavor. This week we’re taking a look at their New York Honey Stout, an 8% stout featuring locally sourced New York honey (from bees!).
Here’s what Coney Island has to say about this beer:
“A robust, full-bodied sweet stout. Heavily roasted chocolate notes are balanced by caramel malt flavor and the subtle sweetness of honey. Strong molasses aromas complimented by a subtle citrusy hop presence. “
I really love how subtlety complex this beer is. It didn’t taste anything like I had expected it to, and that’s always (usually) a treat. To the best of my knowledge (and a quick skim of the website), this is the darkest (and only malty) offering from Coney Island (at least at the moment) and I really enjoyed their foray into the dark side.
Until next time, watch the video above and let me know if you tried one of these tasty stouts in the comments below!
