I don't know about caramelly flavors, but it'll get dark. Here's mine in the sample tube. That's nothing but Maris Otter - no crystal, no roast, no nothin'.

Update: Gravity has settled out around 1.024. Given all the additions bumped up the volume to somewhere around 2.8 gallons, my guess is the total sugar/DME additions would have put the potential OG at 1.145-1.153, putting the ABV somewhere in the 16-17% range.

The beer is extremely cloudy still, and has a green taste (not unexpected). No unpleasant off flavors from the yeast that I can detect. It's very sweet, but has a nice taste, with a good balance from the hops.

I'll crash it down to try to clear it up, and then rack the beer onto the oak and wine this weekend or next week, and leave it for months.
