338 °L - Viking Malt - Viking Roasted Barley is produced by roasting good quality malting barley grains. The roasting process is similar to that of Black Malt with extra care taken to not burn the grain. Final temperature is more than 392°F. The flavor of Roasted Barley is harsh and more bitter than that of black malt. Burnt and smoky flavors are strong.
