Simpsons Double Roasted Crystal has
been several years in the making. Using years of roasting
experience, knowledge of malt flavor profiles and pilot roasting
facilities, Simpsons has managed to produce this unique malt. This
malt is at the darker end of the Caramel malt spectrum, however
imparts a color and an intense sweet malty aroma second to none which
must be experienced to be believed.
This new malt has the classic Simpsons
Malt house feel and instantly breaks down in the palate once chewed.
It has a distinctive aroma and flavor that is very complex and
imparts a heavy, dark caramel taste with more subtle notes of burnt
sugar, raisins and dark dried fruits such as cherries and plums. It
can also deliver some of the softer roasty notes of a chocolate or
black malt but without the astringency or bitterness. Simpsons
Double Roasted Crystal will produce a deep brown color with ruddy
highlights and add body and foam stability like all caramel malts.
Use it to brew traditional Belgian
Abbey and Trappist Ales, Dubbels and Dark Strong Ales, but also try
it in UK Brown Ales, Stouts, and Porters or any other dark beers to
add an extra layer of complexity.
