Three pounds of Cararoma, NO! Unless that is a misprint, please reformulate as that is a crazy amount of that malt for the recipe.

Okay so I readjusted from 3 to 1 lb of the cararoma. Is it too much caramel and maltiness? Have you done a clone yet of this? It seems bitter value = ebu's = ibu's so 2 oz. of hallertau won't cut the bitterness, right? Shouldn't it equal 32 ibu's although I've read that most German dopplebocks have usually very low ibu's like 7-15.

A quarter pound is plenty, IMO. The "maltiness" is from the base malt not the specialty malt. Cararoma is more burnt toffee and dark, dried fruit than caramel. I would say that 32 IBU is a bit much here as are your late hop additions. One bittering addition is fine. The beer needs enough hops to counterbalance the big malt but still let it be the star. For IBU 25-28 seems about right here. If you want a little hop flavor put in a half ounce @ 20/30 minutes but I do not suggest using a 5 minute addition but it's your beer.

I agree with BigEd. German beers tend to have really simple malt bills. What it really comes down to is a decoction mash and kettle caramelization to get the flavor and color correct.
