Found this in an Asian supermarket, looks like a decent substitute for the Belgian variety.
Anyone used it?

They look like throat lozenges! Is there a list of ingredients in English?

Simple way to find out Vlad.

Use some and damn the torpedoes. That way you'll find out soon enough. If you're worried about the flavour, dissolve some in some hot water, wait for it to cool and just taste it. :beer:

Nice avatar NRB :blink:

I've used it too Crispy,

Worked out OK. Made a Trappist with it that managed to take out 1st place in VicBrew a couple of years ago.

Can't argue with the price either. OTOH I don't think that it's all that different to raw sugar.

Give Grain and Grape a yell. They're selling the real McCoy these days. B)

Why not make your own? I know it not the same but what you really are after is the colour contribution acheived by heating the sugar for extended times.
Gives a great dark red colour. I believe most of the coulour in a Dubel should come from the sugar NOT dark grain additions
