Project Description

BEST Black Malt

BEST Black Malt (roasted malt) is roasted more intensively than BEST Chocolate and is ideal for very dark beers and Stouts that are characterized by a pleasant roasted note. Depending on the amount used in the grain bill, the malt produces a flavor profile in the beer ranging from bitter chocolate to strong coffee. Despite the more intensive roasting process, our gentle methods prevent astringent, unpleasantly bitter tastes, as can be easily validated when checking the comparatively low pyrazine levels. At the same time, the beer retains a light-colored foam. BEST Black Malt complies with the purity guidelines of the German Reinheitsgebot.
