Looks awesome! The only thing id add is a flameout/whirlpool hop addition for increased hoppy awesomeness

It's definitely in the more straightforward black IPA style than the almost-a-hoppy-porter kind of black IPA I prefer.

I would move the five minute additions to knockout. You're getting flavor at fifteen and losing a little aroma at five.

Just a little tip. If you're just looking for dark color, adds the Carafa III the last 10 mins of the mash. Otherwise, your can use it all the way through and get some of the roast flavor.

Looks great, but I would add one more ounce of Warrior at 60 mins

I definitely want a little roast from this beer. Better to add the Carafa III at the beginning of the mash or add it towards the end and use some roasted malt?

I added 1oz of black patent to a similar recipe, hoping for a slight bite to go with the hops, no idea what to really expect. Used midnight wheat for color, because thats what I had. Kegging in the next couple days.

Add it at the beginning and it will give you a nice subdued roast flavor. Also, with a beer that big you will definitely need a starter for your yeast.

I've got a 2L starter going right now.
