Roasted Barley is a roasted, unmalted grain. It imparts dark brown color to the body and head of the beer. It has a distinctive roasted flavor and bitterness not found in similarly roasted, malted grain. Its unique 'bite' is a classic element in most stouts, and some nut brown, amber, and Scotch ales. Use moderately or heavily in stouts, or lightly in bitters and other dark beers.
