Chocolate Malt


First off, let me just clear this up ... chocolate malt has nothing to do with cacao, Hersheys, or any desert-like substance. The name comes from the deep color obtained from the roast.
With that clear, Chocolate Malt is a highly toasted malt that is deep brown, just shy of black in color (340-450 Lovibond). Chocolate malt is used adjust color and add nutty, toasted flavor to beer styles like Porter, Stout, and Brown Ale.
