Finest malts from the British Isles. If you want to make an authentic Dry Irish Stout, then you need to use roasted barley. It is made from unmalted barley, making it distinct from Black Malt which is made by roasting malted barley. This creates a dry, roasted flavor with hints of coffee, and produces a beer with with a creamy white to off white head. It gives black color with ruby highlights and the distinct, dry, roasted bitter flavor characteristic of Guinness. It can also be used in very small amounts for color adjustment with little flavor contribution. 500-600°L

I brew Stouts a few times a year and use a pound of this stuff each time. Nice roasted flavor. It's strong so I only need 12 to 16 ounces for a 5 gallon stout.
I really like this roasted barley. It arrived fresh, and very well packaged. I used a small amount(4oz) in my stout, and the results were great!
I love the roasted notes it imparts. A little can go a long way! Good quality malt. Good also for adding some color, but don't overdo it or the burnt roast flavor will overwhelm you, but a little is a great addition.
