Just curious if it adds anything besides fermentable sugars.

The dark candi sugar will impart some subtle rum-like notes to your brew. Save yourself some money and make it at home if you don't already.

It dries out the beer, because it's close to 100% fermentable. The ABV increases, but the unfermentable sugar level is the same.
