5.0 / 5.02 ReviewsA unique dark sweetnessContributes somewhat to body and head retention. Unlike most caramel malts, though, this one contains an abundance of lovely dark fruit notes, as well as darker sweet notes, somewhere between burnt sugar and caramel. This is very unique malt that I would recommend for adding complexity to darker beers, such as porters and stouts (especially sweet stouts!), as well as adding more layers to naturally complex beers, such as quadrupels or barleywinesFebruary 26, 2014Adds a bitter sweet caramel flavorI use between 5 to 15 percent of my grain bill in heavy beers like Ole Ale and Barley Wine. It adds sweetness and some aroma.February 11, 2014
