1.5lb black barley

same mash schedule and hop schedule.

If your unsure about it, why not just look up an imperial stout recipe out of the recipe database, and modify it with the flavorings you want. There are several. Or you can make the recipe, and then post it if it worked well.

I think with all of that dark malt you are going to need some crystal malt to balance it. As it is, I think it's going to be overly roasty and likely a bit acrid.
