It might give your beer a burnt taste. Usually don't go much more that half that.

Now you've got me worried. The wort tasted fine before the boil though. I guess it won't ruin it.

If it tastes weird, age it for a couple months. It will mellow out.
Black patent is used mostly just for color. Can add and astringent bite reminiscent of charcoal

All done. FG 1.058. 76% Efficiency with 2 batch sparges. The boil down took a little longer than I had hoped but what are you going to do.

I have all but given up on black patent due to the ash taste in my darker brews.
My last two stouts used only 2 oz of black patent and was fine. Anymore than that and I get the ash taste back.
One pound of chocolate might be a bit too much also, but let your taste be your guide and let us know how it comes out as you are the one drinking it and individual tastes vary.
