I use 8oz. Roasted Barley, 8oz. Chocolate Malt, and 12oz. Special B.

The Roasted Barley gives it a nice espresso flavor.

I'm pretty sure, traditionally, roasted barley is a requirement for a true "stout" now you can make porters and dark beers with plenty of other malts... I could be completely wrong, just for some reason I believe I read that somewhere.
