I think almost 13% honey malt is far too much and would be overpowering, I'd say kick it down to around the 8-10% range, I'd also be tempted to replace the special roast with some brown malt, but I really love me some brown malt.

Personally I would not add much if any honey malt to a porter. They are usually sweet enough as is, and that's predominantly what you get from honey malt - sweet. Use less honey than chocolate and add a pound of brown or amber malt and 1/4 - 1/2 lb med crystal for some body and sweetness instead. I think Special Roast and Brown malt are similar, if not almost the same actually, so you could bump that to a pound or so I guess.

Edited orginal post to reflect changes to recipe. Reduced honey malt and changed to brown malt.

things look more inline now
