Good in porters and stouts.
Imparts a nice flavor and dark color, without being harsh or ashy-tasting.

It works
Use when you want to add color without all the dark malt character to any beer. I used it for a black india pale lager.

very useful
Gives great color and character without harshness or burnt flavors. I use it for Dunkelweisens etc but also small quantities in other styles for color correction

My Favorite Color Malt
This is my favorite color malt. I use it for all styles where I'm trying to reach a certain srm. It's great for all styles because the flavor contribution is minimal.

Great stout addition
This is a great way to get a darker beer without adding as much bitterness and burnt flavors like you get with black patent or black roasted barley. Of course it is always fresh when I buy it from MoreBeer.

Nice grain
I bought way too much of this a few years ago, but have been using it in some of my darker ales, especially when I run out of chocolate. It doesn't give the same flavor as chocolate malt, but does provide a little flavor, and a lot of color. I've used it in brown ales, porters, and stouts, all to good effect.

Dark and Tasty
Adds nice color, a little roast flavor, no burnt or acid flavors. Great in a milk stout.
