Chateau Monastique is a toasted, Belgian specialty malt. Monastique malt gives a strong taste of cooked bread, nuts and fruits. It has a pronounced, bitter flavor that mellows on ageing, but can remain quite intense. It also imparts deep color. When used to deepen color, Chateau Monastique malt is typically used as a very small proportion of the grist (0.5%). Monastique malt is suitable for use in porters and ales of all colors. It is excellent for fruit beers, abbey beers, Trapist beers, and many Belgian specialty styles.
