Recipe looks awesome, only thing id recommend is a higher mash temp for a bit more body to it

Looks like a scaled up version of a 5gal Chocolate Oatmeal Stout I just brewed - mine has a pound of lactose in it though

That's one thing about the mash temp I was wondering about. I'm going to up it to 155.

Has anyone added brown sugar to something like this? I was curious on that process and the result. I'll be aging this in a bourbon barrel as well.

With 2 pounds of chocolate and 2 pounds of crystal, you might have plenty of body without having to mash so high. Put the recipe into hopville to see what the estimated FG will be?

I've never added brown sugar directly to a beer. It will contribute some molasses flavor I think. With a beer this big you might want to add the sugar to the fermentor around day 3 of fermentation. My only experience with sugars is making invert sugar for my Belgian beers. I love barrel aged beers, good luck with this one!
