Stouty Stout
Has anyone mentioned that this tastes nice in Stouts? haha. I use it in mine and I like its results. It always comes fresh.

I have been using this in my stouts. It has a sharp flavor and is probably better suited to porters. I am not going to use it in the future unless specific recipes call for it. I don't make porters and I prefer black roasted barleys and chocolate malts in my stouts.

I've used several malts from More Beer and they have all been great quality. This particular one adds a great dry roasty flavor, and dark color which is great for stouts. Go easy or it will get astringent.

Good and dark
Adds a light roasted, smoky notes to some styles. Perfect for stouts.

Perfect for Stouts
I use this grain for adding a dark color and smoky and heavily roasted flavors that some styles of stouts call for. A little goes a long way so don't over do it!

My Bourbon Vanilla Stout is awesome.

Another great malt
I love black in my stouts. A lot of guys use roasted B in their stouts & I do too, but using BP in a stout adds a rich burnt to the beer. It's a specialty malt that is key to darker beers.
