Briess may not be the go-to malt for my beer but they sure have taught me a lot about malt flavor and now color in articles like these and presentations like those given at NHC.

Hey, it seems most of the important hop research we benefit from was done by Miller back in the 90s.  So these guys are good for something!  ;D

I remember an article years back in BYO where Briess had made beers or wort with the same SRM but different hues.

Did a search, found this paper from Breiss. One picture that illustrates the difference. Haven't read it yet.

https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&source=web&rct=j&url=http://community.mbaa.com/HigherLogic/System/DownloadDocumentFile.ashx%3FDocumentFileKey%3D3bd5c1b3-1c56-4684-89b6-73bd2a10d9cf%26forceDialog%3D1&ved=2ahUKEwji_9uW8KngAhUE8YMKHQBpBZIQFjAFegQICBAB&usg=AOvVaw24-bhfHNNn587Jkq8bxi55&cshid=1549551354031

This (also from Briess)
http://blog.brewingwithbriess.com/defining-wort-colors-red-malts-vs-black-malts/

may also be interesting.  May be similar to the paper your link references (I haven't read it yet) and/or similar to the BYO article (which I'm not aware of).
That is similar to what I remember in BYO. The link I referenced was a MBAA paper, so more technical.

Thanks.

Ditto!  I don't love their malt, regardless of the fact that they're located only 1 hour away from here... but they sure are sharp folks anyway.  When my nuclear job goes kaput a few years from now, I'm seriously considering applying for a job there.  Win-win.

I vaguely remember going to a seminar at NHC on this subject by a speaker from Briess.  As I recall it was at least ten minutes of excellent information crammed into an hour session.

You recall correctly.
