I think that much sugar is really going to thin/dry out the beer. Are you just trying to push up the alcohol level, or do you want a lot of the brown sugar character? Maybe consider using a few tbsp of molasses to get some of that character?

Going for both I guess but more body and flavor so molasses sounds like a better option.

thanks for your input

I would just increase the LME to keep your OG the same.

Right on, also might consider at least a little crystal unless you just want a pretty dry stout. 1 lb of dark roasted grains is quite a bit too for 5 gallons.

So eliminate the brown sugar add another 1.5lb or so of LME cut the smoked grain to 1/2lb and add 1/2lb of crystal 60 and a little molasses.

I'll give it a try thanks for the advice.
