Roasted at high temperatures, Belgian Chocolate is produced from high-nitrogen malt and "Chocolate" refers primarily to the malt's color and not its flavor. Depending on the amount used, Belgian Chocolate lends aroma, a deep red color, and a nutty/roasted taste to a variety of beer styles depending on the amount specified in the malt bill. Added to recipes in small percentages, the dark roasted malt will typically be utilized as a color corrective.
