300-375 °L - Viking Malt - Viking Chocolate Dark Malt is produced by roasting from pilsner malt. Final temperature and roasting time is somewhat lower compared to their Black Malt. The amylolytic activity of Chocolate Dark Malt is zero. The amount of fermentable extract is rather low. Flavor of Chocolate Dark Malt is burnt, bitter and smoky, but not as intense as Black Malt. Aromas and tastes of coffee and chocolate can be found and they are well balanced in the overall taste.

Chocolate Dark Malt is mainly included in grists for Porters and Stouts, but it can also be used for any other dark colored beers like Dark Ales due to its strong coloring value. Chocolate Malt contributes roasted flavors and aromas with hints of dark chocolate and coffee in any beer. Already with rather low dosage portions a remarkable increase in color can be found together with changes in flavor and aroma. Typical dosage rate of Chocolate Dark Malt is normally under 10%.

In 2016 Viking Malt and Danish Malting Group joined forces to better serve their customers. Now the new Viking Malt is the leading malting company in Northern Europe and supply raw materials and services to the global brewing, distilling and food industries. Viking Malt has 6 malthouses in areas where our distinctive Nordic barley is sourced: in Halmstad, Sweden; Vordingborg, Denmark; Lahti, Finland; Panevezys, Lithuania and in Sierpc and Strzegom, Poland. The annual malting capacity is close to 600 kilotons.

Russ C on Jun 21, 2022
This is pretty light compared to other chocolate malt that's closer to 500 L can I use this as the sole dark malt for a stout?
Tim Sullivan on Jun 17, 2020
BEST ANSWER: The other posters are correct that you will want to also add a grain in the 500L range to get the right color and roasted flavor stouts are known for.
Is this malt or roasted unmalted grain? The MoreBeer site seems to use the term malt for everything, including all cases of unmalted roasted grain. I am looking for clarification between roasted malt and roasted grain.
JackHorak on Jan 13, 2024
BEST ANSWER: I believe it is a malted barley that has been kilned to whatever specifications of viking malting! Chocolate malts are not raw barley roasted
