2lb dark lme

Not sure that I'd use black patent in a stout (it's more of a porter thing). Roasted barley would be more appropriate. You could do something as simple as one of the following.

90% 2-row
10% roasted

I like to add flaked barley to mine for mouthfeel.

65% 2-row
25% flaked barley
10% roasted barley

Since you used amber LME however it probably had a fair bit of crystal malt I would think.

70% 2-row
10% crystal 60
10% flaked barley
10% roasted barley

This is the dry stout recipe that is straight out of Lewis' stout book - it is also Jamil's award winning recipe...

70.0 7.00 lbs. Pale Malt - English
20.0 2.00 lbs. Flaked Barley
10.0 1.00 lbs. Roasted Barley

I'm with Bradsul on the Black patent - save it for your porters
