That's way to much spice. I would take your cinnamon down to 1tsp (at most) and the clover and allspice down to a 1/4 of a tsp (at most). Not sure on the ginger, but again, that seems like a lot. Spices go a long way in beer, so use very little of them. You can always add more in the primary.

I would recommend listening to the Sunday Session (the brewing network) podcast on Pumpkin/Spice beers. Very informative. It aired a few weeks ago.
