It's for aroma and ads a lot of it.

Unsweetened because you don't want the sugars in chocolate to ferment. 100% cocoa is the way to go!

2 LBS flaked oats
1LB Chocolate Malt
1LB Roasted Barley

Hops:

3 OZ East Kent Goldings 60 minutes
1 OZ East Kent Goldings 15 minutes

30 IBUs Tinseth

Yeast:

Nottingham

Extras:

Dash of Chocolate Essence added when kegging
what would 1-2 lbs of lactose do to this beer?

I'm not sure. I haven't brewed it with Lactose. If you are going to do that I'd cut back on or eliminate the flaked oats as both of these provide body to the beer... -Mike

just brewed this on sunday. made a 5.5 gal batch. I cut the recipe in half except for the chocolate malt and roasted barley. also used the full 8 oz Hershey's cocoa powder(rehydrated). it's going crazy in the fermenter right now. it tasted amazing going into the fermenter.

does anybody think that leaving the roasted barley at 1 lb will give an extremely strong coffee flavor?

Probably not. If you want a coffee flavor grind some coffee (course like a french press to prevent oxidation) and "dry hop" in the keg or secondary.
