Aromatic malt is a kilned barley malt used to give beer a strong, aggressive malt aroma and rich color.


Brewing with aromatic malt

General brewing information

Aromatic malt is high in diastatic power and can convert itself completely; however, because of the extremely strong aromatics it lends to the finished beer, most brewers avoid using more than 10% in a batch to maintain balance.

Beer styles

A traditional Belgian malt, aromatics are common in malty Belgian beers such as dubbels.
