Darn it.

It's only been in the primary 2 days but my "stout" is looking more brown then the black I had hoped for.

200 grams of Dark Crystal
200 grams of Chocolate
100 grams of Black Patent
and 2 1/2 litres of Amber LME

I was weary of putting in too much Patent, should I have done more. Any suggestions from this point?

Well...according to the Almighty Beer Recipator, that should come out to roughly 39 SRMs...dark brown, but still not too bad. The patent actually should make it darker, if anything.

Steep 100 gm of roasted barley in 500 ml of water. Remove grain & boil 5 min. Cool and add to fermenter.

Personally, I think roasted barley is one of the defining flavors for stouts.
