That is A LOT of black patent. I would use mostly Roasted barley, and a touch of black patent. Maybe 1lb R.B. and maybe 4-5 oz of black.

Cut down the Crystal as well. Maybe 3/4-1 pound. If you want some more body, add some flaked barley.

Infact, as you are adding lactose as well, maybe keep the Crystal even lower.

Nor sure about how much coffee or lactose to use though.....sorry!

I would skip the black patent and do 1 lb of roasted barley instead which will give it a nice coffee flavor. Knock the crystal down to 1 lb. Skip the coffee added to secondary and add the milk sugar during the last 15 minutes of the boil.
