I'm not an expert in stouts at all but I would have to think 3.5 lbs of really highly kilned and heavily roasted malts would be overkill, correct me if I am wrong...

Ps why not sub carafa for the chocolate for a less harsh flavor?

Rum is right....I should have mentioned that I love...love...love coffee...I am trying to get the vanilla/toast/roast/coffee that you get out of artisan coffee, and have been wanting to make a beer that emulates this without actually adding coffee... so do you think carafa would be able to do that?

Dann-I asked for you to correct me go ahead. Will 3.5 lbs be overkill?

CCIS-I don't mind special B, and love what it does with other styles, that is why I added it to the recipe. What do you think I should do?
