Default First Recipe Looking for Opinions - Dry Stout

This will be my 12th brew and my 7th all grain. I've been brewing for just over a year now and want to give it a go at my own recipe. I'm going for a dry stout with a relatively heavy/oily mouth feel with hints of chocolate and coffee. Let me know what you think or how it could be improved.

8 Lbs 2-row
2 Lbs Victory malt
1 Lb Carapils
1 Lb Chocolate malt
0.5 Lbs Roasted Barley
1.5 Oz EKG @ 60 minutes
0.5 Oz Fuggles @ 20 minutes
Wyeast 1084 Irish Ale Yeast

Single infusion mash at 154 for 60 minutes

I like where you are going. Although I'm not sure about a lb of carapils, it might be a bit much and you don't have any black patent. The black patent will add the coffee taste, unless you specifically don't like it. Mine usually looks a little something like this:

8 lbs 2row
1 lb flaked barley
8 oz black pat
8 oz special roast
