This can't be, is special roast the same, or is there something very wrong with this picture?

My online supplier (paddockwood here in Canada) isn't carrying biscuit malt anymore either. I'm very interested in a close substitute. I haven't tried it yet as a direct substitute but victory malt also has biscuit notes to it.

Victory is probably your best bet. Special roast is a caramel, much darker (220L vs 25L), sweeter and nuttier.

The special roast that b3 sells is a biscuit malt. 50L. I've used it a bunch in english bitters. It's kind of more subtle than a full on biscuit malt from what I can tell.

If you haven't already ordered, AHS and Listermann both carry biscuit malt.

I have never used special roast -- is it similar to Belgian Special B or Caraaroma?
