BEST Special X® imparts to beer – depending on the amount in the grist– a smooth roasty flavor reminiscent of raisins or dried fruit. The beer possesses a chestnut to dark hue (depending on rate) and an aromatic and harmonious full-bodied character. The malt does not, however, introduce bitter roasted flavors but rather brings a mild smoothness to beer without any of the astringent qualities associated with other dark malts. BEST Special X® is a cool and “crafty” malt-product. Any craft brewer should try out this malt in his or her creations and impress with a rich mix of flavors.
