I'm sorry to hear that! Better luck next time!
I plan to rebrew this recipe, but I have made a few modifications. I upped the MO to 10 pounds, subbed Roasted Barley for the Chocolate Malt, and upped the Honey Malt to 1.25 lbs.
I wanted to increase the ABV and honey flavor, and I want more of a roasty/toasty flavor rather than the chocolatey/caramel flavor of the Choc Matl. I will use the same yeast and everything else will remain the same.
I'll report back when I have more info an hard numbers.
