I don't see brown malt in too many recipes but I absolutely love it in my Brown Porter. It gives such a unique and terrific flavor. I can't help the temptation to drag out the "underrated" moniker. Anybody else have any love for some Brown Malt?

I love carabrown. Graham cracker flavor.
Crabs and beer were meant for each other!

I use brown malt and chocolate malt quite frequently. I really like the brown ales and stouts that I have made using them.

I love brown malt in brown porter! It's perfect. It's not roasty (like robust porter), but it makes a great brown porter. I think it's indispensable for that!

I made the mistake of using brown malt in an amber recently, kind of on the spur of the moment. It was not great -- kind of a burnt toast flavor which really overwhelmed the hoppy notes (Ahtanum, one of my favorites.)
