You could call it schwarz beer schwarzale?. Sounds like it will look and taste good too.

That looks slightly like a west-coast interpretation of a Best Bitter, but that's going by numbers and not style, since I can't visualize what it would taste like.

with only a 1/4 lb of black malt, it won't be dark enough for a schwarzbier.

Looks more like an American Amber to me if the crystal isn't too dark.
