  2. Porters and Stouts: The malt contributes to the depth of flavor and color in these dark, robust beers.
  3. Dunkel Lager: It provides color and subtle roasted notes to this malt-forward, dark lager style.
  4. Black IPA/Cascadian Dark Ale: Carafa® Type II can be used to add color and a touch of roasted flavor while maintaining a balanced profile.
