I've looked around and there a ton of threads about using treacle, molasses, and golden syrup, but I couldn't find this particular question:
I missed my gravity on my first all-grain batch on my Dry Irish Stout, and would like to bring the ABV up a bit, and have thought about adding a complementary dark-flavored fermentable to the secondary to do so. I settled on black treacle to make it a "Peculiar" Irish Stout - where it's said that Old Peculiar gets its peculiarness...
However... I can't find any treacle this weekend, and I'm ready to rack to secondary. I did find some Lyle's Golden Syrup and some regular Molasses.
Would I come close to matching a black treacle flavor profile by adding 1/2 Golden Syrup and 1/2 Molasses? I was thinking about 2oz of each to a 1/2 cup of water, boiling it, cooling it, and adding it to the secondary.
