Dark Crystal

Dark Crystal

(120 ASBC)

Across our range of medium, standard and dark crystal malts you will discover characteristic fresh malty notes upfront on the palate; followed by rich layers of muscovado sugar, caramel and caramelised sugar. Roasted notes remain evident throughout along with a smouldering bouquet of fresh roast coffee, delicate smokiness and pleasant lingering finish of luxurious dark chocolate. Typical for our darker crystal malts we see a prominent mix of dried fruit notes, with raisins and prunes standing out.
