Theme: The mysterious world of dark malts
Historically, the prominent flavors in darker colored beers come from the use of roasted malts in the brew. These days, the curious beer drinker can find "dark" versions of many different styles - IPA, Wit, Saison - that look dark but taste like their light-colored counterpart. So how can a stout taste rich and roasty but a black IPA of the same color tastes crisp and hoppy?
This months ILB will shed some light on the current reality of dark beers. Our resident home brewer, George Bregar, will be bringing 4 batches of stout, all brewed the same way but using different dark malts to achieve a black color. We will also sample some of the current "black versions" of commercial beers, and show you a little trick that some brewers use to make beer darker.
