The roasted barley I buy is labeled at 450L. I've not noticed any flavour I'd describe as 'smokey' though. My black patent is labelled at 525L and in larger quantities I'd describe the flavour as 'acrid' before it mellows after a few months of aging.

I believe the Briess Roasted Barley is 300L. They sell Black Barley (unmalted) at 500L.

Based on the fact that most English Roasted Barleys are 450-500L I would guess that is the correct version. I'll order a bag of the darker variety for my next stout to see what difference it makes.
