Default Nut brown ale with molasses priming...?

I just brewed my second beer which was Northern Brewer's Nut Brown ale. Brewed yesterday and fermentation is on it's way. I read somewhere that someone primed with molasses. It sounds like it'd go well with this brew maybe add some flavor and mouth feel. Anyone have any experience priming with molasses?

Primary: Belgian Wit

Molasses can easily dominate the flavor of a beer and not in a good way. I wouldn't try using it exclusively for priming. Maybe 20% of the total.
Remember one unassailable statistic, as explained by the late, great George Carlin: "Just think of how stupid the average person is, and then realize half of them are even stupider!"

You can try using something less dominating like maple syrup.
