What are you looking for exactly? How much coffee character? How sweet? Any particular flavors or attributes you want? Your recipe as is will make a fine beer, but I can’t know if it will be exactly what you are looking for.

If you want something creamy/sweet I would go with a more neutral bittering hop than Chinook (pretty much anything else). What are you trying to get from the Challenger addition?

I also like darker crystal malts in stouts, maybe a caramunich, or crystal 80, something like that (even a blend of a medium and something really dark like 120 or special B if you want some dark fruit character).

I might hold off on the lactose until the beer ferments out. You can always add more/less depending on how it tastes.

Good luck.

More of a slightly sweet ,with a pronounced coffee flavor. As far as the hops , I'm open to suggestions, as I said this is my first try at this. Thanks.

First, a full pound of roasted barley is a bit much for a sweet stout. I'd drop that to 1/2 pound tops. Also, I'd go with an even pound of lactose. Going with a darker crystal may not be a bad idea as previously mentioned. I think the Chinook hops are alright but the Challenger does seem out of place. Lastly, I'm not sure your going to get much from 2 cups of coffee, although I've admittedly never brewed a coffee stout before.
