This malt is often used to provide color without overpowering flavor that is characteristic of European-style dark beers. It may be used with or without Roasted Barley to brew a Stout with more color and less intense Roasted Barley flavor notes, and it may be used with Chocolate Malt to produce a Porter with less pronounced chocolate flavor notes.
