Default A mead maker in need of a beer makers opinion

This is a braggot recipe devised all on my own without my AG half's input so if Im way off base let me know.

4.5# Caraaroma (130.0 SRM)
3# 2 Row (2.0 SRM)
1# Carafa I (337.0 SRM)
1oz Vanguard dry hopping 21 days
1oz Chinook @30min
16# Honey, probably a sweet clover/basswood honey added over 20 days in 4# increments starting on day 4
Lalvin EC-1118

est OG 1.163
target FG 1.010-1.025
est alcohol 18.35%-20.34%
est color 54.3
bitterness 38.0

It seems like a FOX TV Show when a mead maker moves in with an AG brewer....They end up with **** like Lambic Braggot.
