I'd love to hear what you all think of this recipe. It's now conditioning in secondary, so I can't change it, but I'd still love to hear initial thoughts. Thanks!
Wee Heavy Ale - 5.5gallon batch
11.25lb Golden Promise
1.25lb Smoked Golden Promise (home smoked over alder, not very strong)

1.5oz Fuggles for 45min
.5oz Fuggles for 10min
.5oz Fuggle for 5 min

Mashed with 19qt water at 152deg for 60min
Sparged at 172deg
Boiled 6.5g down to 5.5g
I carmelized about 1 gallon of first runnings in the stockpot until it was very dark but not burnt.
