Sounds delicious to me! I recently did a similar recipe but added a bit of smoked malt and used fresh sliced ginger root, crushed allspice berries, and whole cinnamon sticks to spice in the last 5 min of the boil. It's still in the primary so I'm not sure how it's turning out. Let me know how this one goes!
