It's a key part of my stout recipe. Less bitterness/astringency from the malt than if you use black patent or roasted barley.

Sweet and Creamy
This malt makes a beer that is almost more of a milkshake than a stout. Sweet and creamy. Unlike English roast barley, no bitterness and no smoke. Dangerously drinkable. I used it at .25 pounds with 6.75 pounds 2-row, and it resulted in a dark ale on the sweet side. Then I used .5 pounds with 6.5 pounds 2-row and got a sweet creamy stout. Both beers were super tasty and drinkable. But those beers were not the Celtic fertility rite around the bonfire that I love from a smoky English roast barley. I prefer this stout in summer, cold and great with burgers and guacamole.
