Default new "Special D" malt

So after a lot reading, I made my own “Special D” malt (get it.... specialty….)
Ok….. But what would this be similar to or called, compared to commercial grain?
-Used pale malt, soaked in water for 24h
-heated to 68 C, left to mash for 3h (did in luch time, so only continued after work)
-spread it out on a tray, and roasted @180 c. for 50 min
Color is almost a “light brow sugar” and tastes bloody fantastic!

Sounds like you made a crystal malt. I would just taste it and try to pick out flavors and compare it to the color and flavor descriptions of different crystal malts until you find what it is most similar.
