I see brown ale, brown porter or even a BGS with some sugar. You could use some lighter crystal. With some lighter crystal malt you could do a APA, or a blonde. With some roasted barley you could make a dry stout.

You have a number of malts there that should be mashed.

Here is a brown porter.

6 lb LME
10 oz Chocolate Malt
6 oz Special B
2 oz Willamette at 60 minutes in a 3 gallon boil.
(could use some lighter crystal, like 1 lb of 80L or so)

If you add you munich, biscuit and special roast and steep at 150 for 60 minutes it may pass as a robust porter (but some 4 oz of black patent too would help.)
Everything is better with a beer.

I`ll say a bionde would do very nice this time of year. No need for it to be boring either especially w/ pilsner extract.

5-6 lbs pilsen/pale extract
8-12 oz munich (depends on lovibond)
5 oz victory/buscuit

1 oz willamette - B
1 oz cluster 20 min (gives a nice subtle black currant flavor)
1 oz willamette 2 min
