Default What style of beer is this?

I found this recipe on another website of restaurant favorites, but can't find out how they classified the style. It looks like it's pretty low in bitterness. Any thoughts?

Ingredients:

6.6 lbs. gold unhopped malt extract
2 lbs. orange blossom honey
1 lb. chocolate malt
1 lb. pale chocolate malt
1 lb. Vienna malt
0.5 lb. cara-pils malt
0.5 lb. crystal malt, 56° Lovibond
1 lb. Munich malt
2 oz. Perle hops (8% alpha acid), for 20 min.
1 oz. crystal hops (3.2% alpha acid), for finishing
Wyeast 1742 (Swedish ale)

Goes by the name Nosferatu's Return.

Best I can tell it's a Wee Heavy or a very dark Strong Scotch Ale. You might also get away with calling it a Robust Porter.

Yeah, it looks like the bittering hop addition was omitted, it definatly needs something else.

It's listed on the web as an American Strong Ale.

Could be some crazy extract version of a black barleywine or old ale. Most likely an old ale. I agree though, the bittering hop was omitted. Probably doesnt have a defined style, it is what it is.
