I've brewed this for the past 3 years. It takes about 3 months to age, mainly for the spice levels to mellow out. Given your timeline you may want to cut them in half.

11 lbs Pale Malt, Maris Otter
1.5 lbs Crystal 80L
4 oz Chocolate Malt

2.5 oz Cluster (60 min)
0.5 oz Cascade (15 min)

The following are all added 5 minutes from flameout.
.83 oz Bitter Orange Peel (Freshly Grated)
1 tsp Cardamom
1 tsp Cinnamon
1 tsp Ginger
12 whole cloves
8 oz Molasses

Wyeast 1056 Yeast

I brewed this recipe from The Pol this year in early October. I stumbled across it last year but it was to late. It got favorable feedback and coming out of the BK it sampled excellent. As my neighbor put it, it just needed some whipped cream!
