Default Working on a Black Dog clone

Went to the new Spanish Peaks website tonight, I see that they have started making Black Dog again. Since this was the beer that got me into homebrewing back in 1991, I thought I would try to make something similar. Their website gives the following clues.
"A deep amber ale with a pleasant hop aroma, it has layers of malty flavors that give it a complex and well balanced taste. A substantial and pleasant ale that retains a high level of drinkability"
OG- 3.2
ABV- 5.2
Malts- Munich, caramel 40, caramel 80, chocolate
Hops - Centennial, Northern Brewer, Chinook
IBU- 36"

So, heres my stab at it......Please give me your opinions

I had some of that for the first time a couple of weeks ago. I enjoyed it very much. Let us know how your clone turns out.

What yeast are you going to use? Call me crazy, but it almost seemed to have some phenolic flavors to it, kind of like what a Bavarian weizen would have.

Im planning on using the WLP001 California Ale yeast and fermenting at the upper end of the spectrum to try and replicate that taste.

Any feedback on how your brew turned out? I know it was awhile ago. Looking to brew it myself.
