Default Honey Porter Recipe

I am looking for others' opinions on this recipe. It came from a Samuel Adams Honey Porter clone recipe but I want to alter it so that the LME added is pale and not amber. So, this is what I came up with:

1/2 lb + 1/4 cup black patent malt crushed
1/2 lb + 1/4 cup chocolate malt crushed
1 lb medium crystal malt crushed
6 lb pale LME
3 lb honey
1 oz Perles (boil hops - 60 min)
1/2 oz Fuggles (boil - 30 min)
1/2 oz Fuggles (finish - 5 min)
Wyeast 1084

What do you think?

It looks like a standard robust porter recipe with honey. Personally I would start with a pound of honey if brewing it for the first time.

I think you won't taste the honey in there, even at 3 pounds. Personally I would add 2# of a STRONG flavored honey (buckwheat, basswood, etc.) at secondary (don't boil it), and replace half of the crystal malt with honey malt, which IMHO gives more of a honey flavor than actual honey does.

Whatever you do though, don't boil the honey.
