That's a ton of black for a five gallon stout. And by "black barley" does that mean roasted barley? Roasted barley is the common dark malt for an Irish stout. My suggestions are to reduce the dark roasted component to 10-15% and increase the extract to six pounds at the same time. My guess is that your posted ABV % is using the total weight of ingredients and the black grain does not provide any fermentable sugars. I would also consider adding a little chocolate malt to go with the roasted barley to add a touch of flavor complexity and cut back on the hopping rate a bit. Such as:

6# DME
.75# Roasted barley
.25# Chocolate malt
1.5 oz Phenix Hops
