You will notice that there are no specialty malts in the grists; caramel/toffee character is developed by boiling down a portion (approx 1 gallon) of the first runnings long enough to reduce by half. Color can be difficult to predict, so you may have to experiment with varying amounts of roasted barley over subsequent batches to find the perfect percentage.
Alternate recipe (traditional kettle caramelization technique); I've come to the conclusion that reducing the entire volume of the first runnings by half is probably excessive, particularly for those brewers who are mashing thin (2+ qt/lb). In order to make this easily accessible for all, I recommend boiling down a gallon of the first runnings. I tend to mash at the conventional 1.25 quarts/lb, but adjust my strike volumes to get nice round volume measurements into the tun.

I just made almost the same recipe, but for a 2.5g version (test batch). I didn't FWH though...do the hops come through a lot on yours? I only went with a bittering addition to let the malt shine.
