I like everything, except I would be tempted to split that coffee up to 2 oz at flameout and 2 oz at secondary.

I've seen oatmeal stouts with up to two pounds of oats in the grist, I would suggest upping yours to at least a pound, though I am a big fan of oats in most malt-forward beers. I think the Chocolate Wheat Malt will turn out interesting, let us know what kind of character it ends up giving the beer.

By the way, from a recent recipe I heavily suggest sparging if you're going to do BIAB on a style with a fair amount of roasted grains.

This isn't necessarily a criticism, but more of a question: wouldn't the MO's softer notes be completely overshadowed by the black and chocolate malts? Why not just use 2-row?

I chose MO simply because the brew I'm trying to clone uses all English malt. In the grand scheme, it may not matter, I don't know.
