Samuel Smith's Taddy Porter is an example of a molasses-heavy beer. If you've never tried it, it's worth seeking out. As I said in my post above, I find that 8 oz of blackstrap in 5 gallons captures the flavor well. In lower amounts - say 1-4 oz - it lends a rum-like nose.
Stop using so much caramel malt. Your beer will thank you.
(yes, Carapils is a caramel malt...so is Special B)
