Yeah - would like to know how this came out - especially the caramel coffee syrup... I'd think that being mostly sugar, this probably didn't do much for the final flavor. (I LIVE off of Hazlenut coffee syrup!)

That's what I'm afraid of as well - that the caramel coffee syrup will just ferment out...the label was like 20g of carbs and 19g of sugar. I brewed this yesterday - OG and mash temps pretty much right on.

I wonder if there's caramel flavoring I can add at bottling if the syrup ferments out.

I brewed this up with a caramel syrup that I made at home, from another reciepe here. I taste more coffee, and no real caramel in this. I'd do less coffee next time...

otherwise I've found this to be a really nice stout. Not sweet by any means

I have actually been debating whether to do something similar to this using real caramel. Does anyone have experience using real caramel and whether the flavor carries through to the final product? Looking forward to winter beers!

Why not try making caramel using some lactose sugar in place of sucrose? Some of the flavor should remain because it is not fermentable by Saccharomyces.
