Is black barley malted?
Mike Hoover on Dec 4, 2018

Following from HomeBrewTalk "Black Patent is indeed made from malt. Roasted Barley is made from unmalted barley. Roasted Barley and Black Patent give entirely different flavors. My suggestion is to go to your LHBS or local brewery and ask them to taste the grains.

Roasted Barley flavors can be described as dry, intensely bitter, roasty, chocolate and coffee. Black Patent malt has many of those flavors, but also is acrid, burnt and ashy.

Again, taste them side by side. The differences will be immediately apparent."

"I'm 99% sure that black barley and roasted barley is the same thing (highly roasted unmalted) aka, the thing required in Stout. Black patent is malted and used mostly in Porters."

Hope this helps.
