It's not very common anymore. And is sometimes reffered to as "Blown". IIRC, it's an English specialty derivation so, your chances are best found in those styles of yore.

Also, I think it's original intent was for use in Porter.

I made some for the Denny Conn bourbon vanilla imperial porter, but seeing as that won't be ready for maybe a year I'm going to try some homeroasted brown and amber malts in a few small batches of malty reds and browns over the next few months, to see if it's something I like.

I use it in both my Mild and India Brown Ale.

I use brown malt in all my darker english beers, nut browns, milds, porters. I feel that brown malt really "makes" an english-style brown ale. Both the beer recipes in my drop-down use it.

If I had to choose between 3 specality malts forever more, it's be Crystal 55L, brown malt, and UK chocolate malt.

Anything from an amber to a stout. I've seen it called a darker form of Pale, but that's seriously wrong. You can use it as an alternative to Victory/Biscuit. Not a direct substitute, but a good flavor.
