Default Recipe Critique: "Brew Year's Day" Dunkel Weizenbock (?)

Hey Brew fans,

I came up with a recipe a while back for a dark lager using the Breiss Midnight Wheat. I didn't have a target style in mind - I just wanted to experiment a bit to hit some of my own targets for IBUs, SRM, and hop profile. I figured it would be closest to a black lager, but upon tasting it, it's got much more of a bock flavor, but is still quite roasty. The recipe is below:

ABV: 6.55 %
Calories: 219 IBU's: 23.98

For you seasoned veterans out there, from the looks of this, what style did I come closest to matching? I know a true bock uses a large amount of Munich malt, and I didn't use any. The taste is pretty good, and I know that's what matters most, but I'm just curious to see what the community thinks.

Thanks!
