It's actually for a Doppelbock. I'm doing the clone recipe for Bell's Consercrator from an old issue of Zymurgy. It's 3.2% of the grain bill.
The description of ESM is "Burnt sugar, woody, prune flavors" and that describes perfectly what I was tasting last time I had this beer. Kind of weird considering it's such a small percentage of the bill, but nonetheless, I wanted to make sure I'm as close as possible.
