Increasingly, I find I have a taste for darker beers and adding a small bottle of an aged stout to a much larger quantity of an English-y sort of a beer makes for an interesting drink.

There is a lot of history on this blending of different ages of beers. It does really work.

Safale S04 does leave more complex sugars behind than, say US 05, so a caramel note seems consistent with this.
