I like the Hop schedule, but I think you have too much Crystal. I would cut back the Honey Malt and the 40L to a Half pound each, that should give you the sweetness that your looking for, witout giving the hops so much to compete against. I'm not sure about S-04 since I've never used before, but I would lean towards one of the American ale yeasts,WLP001,S-05 or Wyeast 1056.
