During a field trip to the Deer Creek Malthouse outside West Chester, PA one malt variety led to one question: If it was roasted a bit longer, would it make the barley richer in flavor or scorch it to death? We’re excited with the results in Scratch #217, a dunkel-style dark lager. Deer Creek’s “Double Dutch” malt coupled with noble hops results in a smooth, rich, and complex dark beer. It combines a slightly dry chocolate note and bready sweetness with a well-rounded, crisp character without the “weight” of a porter and stout. Prost!
