Yeah, I got a 50 lb. jug so I've used it quite a bit.  Lots of coffee/chocolate flavor to it, as opposed to the D180 which is more fruity.  When you say "how string is it", what do mean?  Flavor?  It's a very strong flavor.  Even has a tiny bit of a burnt quality to it, which works well in some styles.

Hello Denny, exactly i meant strong flavor. do you think adding 1lb could overpower the flavor of the beer?.

I use a lb. in a BDSA.  I wouldn't say it overpowers the flavor, but it defines it.  I guess you'd have to tell me what kind of flavors you're going for in order for me to know how to answer.

Sure, my plan is brewing a Tropical Stout and i am looking for the molasses, licorice, dark fruit, or dried fruit flavor.

You won't get much fruit from the 240.  More coffee and and chocolate.

Interesting you've found no fruit. The website says "D-240 Candi Syrup is the richest and darkest candi syrup available on the market. Created to have a rich smooth palate, D-240 is a triple-dark syrup with hints of dark raisin, extra dark stone fruit and a roasted dark caramel back-palate. For ales that require full body and indescribable flavor that will set your ales apart."  I can see where their description of 'roasted dark caramel' could be considered coffee and chocolate.

I guess I wouldn't say no fruit at all, but not like the lighter ones.  I think dark raisin pretty much hits it.
