The idea of a black Belgian ale intrigued me. This might do the trick.

Does this grain need to be milled?
Joshua Huber on Jan 8, 2022
BEST ANSWER: Yes, to get the best results from it. Coarsely cracked is fine as the malt is 500 L and can be steeped, layered on top of the mash at lauter or mixed in the mash with the rest of the grain bill.
What % for a stout? Could this be used in place of roasted barley?
Nathan Koeppel on Feb 5, 2022
BEST ANSWER: Yes you can substitute blackprinz for roasted barley, you will get the roasted notes without the astringent notes that come from the roasted barley. Personally I use about 8% in my stout. The % you use should be whatever taste good to you, whether it be 8% or 2%. The point is to enjoy your beer whether it is to specs or not.

Good for color without altering flavor at 2% of grain Bill.
I use this malt to adjust the color of my beers. Has little flavor impact if less than 2%.

Best black malt for Black IPA
I used the Blackprinz malt in a Black IPA. The original recipe called for Carafa III, but the Blackprinz worked out nicely. No astringency that I usually associate with very dark malts. No burnt taste or off-flavors. Nice, dark, black color.

Nice specialty malt.
Used in a Black IPA All Grain and it contributed nicely to the flavor. Not over-the-top dark malt flavor but a light coffee/caramel flavor. Very nice, I will definitely use this malt again.
