Used for a Vienna Lager. Nice profile.
May 12, 2015
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.
May 6, 2015
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
May 6, 2015
Love it
Works great for color, flavor and body.
May 10, 2014
Perfect for black IPA
gives you great colour without astringency. Highly recommended for Black IPA and perhaps Robust porter or other browns.

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.

Good malt
Great for that color without the bitterness.
