131.8-169.3 °L - Viking Chocolate Light Malt is produced by roasting from pilsner malt. The amylolytic activity of Chocolate Malt is zero. The amount of fermentable extract is rather low. "Chocolate" refers primarily to the malt's color, not its flavor. This malt will lend various levels of aroma, a deep red color, and a nutty / roasted taste, depending on the amount used. Aromas and tastes of coffee and chocolate can be found and they are well balancing the overall taste.

Chocolate Malt is mainly included in Porters and Stouts, but it can also be used for any other dark colored beers like Dark Ales due to its strong coloring value. Chocolate Malt contributes roasted flavors and aromas with hints of dark chocolate and coffee in any beer. Already with rather low dosage portions a remarkable increase in color can be found together with changes in flavor and aroma. Typical dosage rate of Chocolate Malt is normally under 5–10%.

In 2016 Viking Malt and Danish Malting Group joined forces to better serve their customers. Now the new Viking Malt is the leading malting company in Northern Europe and supply raw materials and services to the global brewing, distilling and food industries. Viking Malt has 6 malthouses in areas where our distinctive Nordic barley is sourced: in Halmstad, Sweden; Vordingborg, Denmark; Lahti, Finland; Panevezys, Lithuania and in Sierpc and Strzegom, Poland. The annual malting capacity is close to 600 kilotons.
