Simpsons DRC™ has been several years in the making. It has a distinctive aroma and flavor that is very complex and imparts a heavy, dark caramel taste with more subtle notes of burnt sugar, raisin, and dark dried fruits such as cherries and plums. It can also deliver some of the softer roasty notes of a chocolate or black malt but without the astringency or bitterness. Simpsons DRC™ will produce a deep brown color with ruddy highlights and add body and foam stability like all caramel malts.

While designing a beer for a competition, I realized my Russian Imperial Stout needed that one malt to give it that nice raisin like flavor that only DRC could bring to the game. I went to many other sites to order locally and discovered that these places did not carry my required malt. But, like that loyal friend that is always there to bail you out after a long night pub crawling, Midwest was the one there for me that I could definitely rely on to come through with the goods. Shipping, as always, was fast!
This malt works amazing in a few Stout recipes I've tried.
