Are you going for an Imperial Brown Ale?

I am drinking my first brown now. I used 5.5lbs mixed DME/LME
8.0 oz Caramel/Crystal Malt 60L
4.0 oz Chocolate 350srm
6.0 oz Carapils/Dextrine
1 lb Honey

Comes to 1.051 at 5.5%abv and seems pretty dark and malty tasting for a brown.
Your recipe is 7.6%abv and almost dark enough it might be a Foreign Extra Stout... or so says Beersmith.
