Default Priming sugar for Stout

Going to be bottling my Stout sometime either today or this week, i always prime with 5oz of corn sugar, i've read about using brown sugar, even malt extract...what are some advantages of using brown sugar or extract? about how much should i use of either?

The advantage or disadvantage of any primer is the effect it will have on the flavor. Malt is generally considered to have the least impact on flavor, but it sometimes leaves a tiny krausen ring in the bottle. Brown sugar can add nice flavors to a dark beer. You might do some with one primer and some with another so that you can see the difference and decide which one you prefer.

Here's a nice calculator that'll help you figure out how much priming sugar to add to a variety of brews.
