Dingemans Special B®


Through its unique double drying process, Dingemans Special B® has a distinctive aroma and flavour. Special B® is responsible for the intense caramel taste and raisin-like flavour of some Belgian Abbey beers. It can be used in place of chocolate and black malt when deep colour without bitterness is desired.

Suggested usage: Double Belgian Abbey and Trappist beers, Stout, Dark ales, Belgian Quadrupel
