This biscuit style, hybrid drum roasted malt has a flavor very different than Caramel Malt 120. A proprietary drum roasting process develops both caramel and dry roasted flavors. Good in high gravity beers like Doppelbock, and mid to dark belgian style ales. Adds complexity to Abbey and darker styles like dry Irish Stouts and Porters. Or use in lighter colored, lighter gravity beers for rich, complex flavor.

Suggested Usage Levels:

  • Up to 5% - Background notes of toasted marshmallow, toast, mild coffee, prunes, dry, woody
  • 5-10% - Red to amber color with pleasant toffee aroma notes.  Belgian ales, English ales for complexity, porters.
  • 10-15% - Develops a much deeper reddish/brown color with fuller malty body and more pronounce raisin/toasty aroma.  Doppelbocks.
