To be honest, I think the chocolate will take over a little. I just did a brown ale with 4 oz of Fawcett Pale Choc. - it's pretty good, but the late hops are a little overshadowed. Actually, add a few more #s of pale malt, change the C-40 to 120, add 4 oz of Victory and scratch the Munich (okay, that's quite a few changes), and it's a ringer.
But what do I know? I'm sure it would be tasty as is. You do have it pretty heavily late-hopped.

So the chocolate was honestly one of my biggest question marks. I like what it adds to beers like Janet's Brown, but it might be a bit much for an amber. I might leave chocolate in but town it down to just a couple ounces.
