Produced from quality spring barley. Carafa Special® is the de-husked version of Carafa.
Flavor: notes of coffee, cocoa and dark chocolate.
Using our unique process, we remove the husks from carefully selected grains before malting and roasting them. Reduces astringency and bitterness, while adding coffee-brown color, a coffee-like bouquet, dark beer aroma, as well as body and mouthfeel to finished beer but without introducing harsh flavors. Even small amounts of Carafa Special® malts in the grain bill produce dark beers of unusual smoothness and mildness, with a firm, creamy, white head.
