Briess Extra Special is a hybrid drum roasted specialty malt. With a complex flavor that includes aspects of both caramel and dry roasted malts, Briess Extra Special is very different from the similarly-colored Caramel 120L. It tastes of toasted marshmallow, mild coffee, and prunes, with a dry, woody character. It imparts deep copper hues, trending towards light brown with heavier use.
Briess Special Roast is a dark amber roasted malt. Slightly darker than biscuit-style malts, Special Roast has a toasty, biscuity flavor, but accompanied by a unique sourdough tang. It imparts deep gold to brown color, depending on usage.
Crisp Brown malt is roasted specialty malt. It has a strong, dark-toasted grain flavor, slightly nutty with a hint of bitter chocolate. Brown malt imparts dark amber to light brown hues. It is used in many older English ale styles, and is an essential ingredient for traditional porters.
