Looks good to me. All seem to be within range.

The 4.17% of Roasted Barley might be on the high threshold.

If I were brewing it up I'd:

~ Cut the Roasted barley to about 4-5 ounces
~ Take 2 pounds of the 2-row and toast it for 30 minutes at 350.
~ Mash it at a higher range, like 156-157 to keep a good robust mouthfeel.

But then again...I like dicking around with recipes.

I don't think this will dark enough to look like a stout. About 10% black grain is average for a stout and you have just over 6%. There should be more pale malt IMO. With only 51%+ the beer will probably not attenuate well and the high % of specialty malts could leave the beer "flabby". That 25%+ of Victory malt seems like a lot. The use rate of Victory is typically 5-10%. I would also consider cutting back on the oats to something like 15% of the grist. You might also want to try toasting the oats to add some extra flavor and get some of the nuttiness you are looking for. Here is my basic rundown for your approximately 12 lb bill:

70% pale malt ~8 1/4 lb
15% oats, toasted ~ 1 3/4 lb
5% Victory ~ 9.5 oz
5% chocolate ~ 9.5 oz
5% roasted barley ~ 9.5 oz

I have personally never gone over 10% oats. I'll be watching this thread to see how this turns out. (I am to scared of stuck sparges to go over 10%)
