Profile

CaraAroma, a type of caramel/crystal malt with a deep black color, is widely used in beer brewing for its unique flavor profile and properties. It imparts rich caramel and toffee notes to the beer, adding complexity and depth to its taste. The use of CaraAroma influences the overall flavor by providing a sweet malty character that balances out any bitterness from hops.

This grain is commonly utilized in darker beer styles such as stouts, porters, and dark ales. Its intense color contributes to the appearance of these beers, giving them their characteristic dark hues. Furthermore, CaraAroma aids in enhancing the body and mouthfeel of the brew due to its high sugar content.
