I'd add a flavor hop addition. Four oz chocolate malt seems like too much but 350L is pretty light. Sure would not want that much of anything darker.
Everything is better with a beer.

Default Amber Ale (partial extract)

First Im sorry for jumping into your thread, its just that it wasn't very busy and i thought i would ask one of you experts what kind of concoction Ive got going on here.
"5 gallon batch"
3.3 - lbs Amber (hopped) LME @ flameout
2 - lbs light DME
1 - lbs Crystal 60L
1 - lbs Belgium Candi Syrup D-45 @ flameout
1 - oz First Gold UK hops @ 10min
5 - oz Kreamy X @ bottling
S-05 yeast

Can one of you guys please shed some light on what Ive got going on here. Am i still in the Amber Ale range or am i looking at a more darker beer to come out of this. What should i add or subtract to get where i need to be? I'm definitely looking to have a malt forward (caramel) tasting beer. What should in be expecting as far as ABV?
Thanks for you replies to this amateur!
