This imported Belgian candi syrup has a lovibond rating of 400, and is made from pure Belgian beet sugar. Provides a burnt sugar flavor, which is surprisingly agreeable when used in Stouts and Belgian Dark Strongs. Also used to flavor Whisky Sour cocktails. Use 1/2 to 1 lb. per 5 gallon batch of beer. One pound dissolved in 1 gallon of water yields a starting gravity of 1.032.

Pouch ruptured

Review by Kent on 3/26/2015

I wish I could review the product based on beer flavor, but the pouch leaked all over the shelf in my fridge. It was not handled roughly; I must have gotten a package with a seam defect. I did taste it while cleaning up the mess, and it had a wonderfully complex and very slightly acrid flavor. I believe it would make a really tasty stout.
