Default Belgian Christmas Ale Time - Thoughts on Recipe?

I'm fairly new to home brewing, just three extract kits done so far (IPA, tripel, and hefe. All have went well so far though. I've yet to design my own recipe yet. I'd like to brew a Belgian Christmas Ale soon so that it has plenty of time to age before Christmas. Here is a recipe I came up with using BeerSmith.

If anyone has thoughts or suggestions it would be greatly appreciated, particularly on the herbs and spices. For the candi sugar, I plan to actually make my invert syrup and matching that SRM as close as possible. Will be my first time making it though.


Thanks!
