Default Brown Poter Recipie.. How to add some depth without "Burnt" tastes

Ok Here is what I am thinking of brewing Saturday:
Code:
Ingredients:
------------
Amt                   Name                                     Type          #        %/IBU         
9 lbs                 Pale Malt (2 Row) US (2.0 SRM)           Grain         1        77.6 %        
1 lbs 8.0 oz          Caramel/Crystal Malt - 60L (60.0 SRM)    Grain         2        12.9 %        
9.6 oz                Chocolate Malt (350.0 SRM)               Grain         3        5.2 %         
8.0 oz                Caramel/Crystal Malt -120L (120.0 SRM)   Grain         4        4.3 %         
0.60 oz               Target [11.00 %] - Boil 60.0 min         Hop           5        19.3 IBUs     
1.00 oz               Goldings, East Kent [5.00 %] - Boil 15.0 Hop           6        7.3 IBUs
First: How does that look.. it is based on the porter recipie in that section of this site...

Second: To hit my SRM I upped the choc a bit, is there anything else I can add instead of more choc to boost color and increase complexity? I thought about patent (just a tiny bit) but I am scared that would add some stuff that would take it out of style (yes I want to enter this in a club comp so I am trying to brew to style...)

Use a pound or so of brown malt and then use chocolate malt to boost the color.

As far as I'm concerned, Patent is the signature grain of any Porter.

The Brown Porter I brew has a total of 1lb of specialty grains in 5 gallons. The recipe quoted has 2lb of crystal alone... not that there's anything wrong with that, it's just not where I'd go.

My favorite porter recipe is 8oz Crystal 45, 4oz Crystal 120, and 12oz Chocolate. Plenty dark, almost no "burnt" tastes without roasted barley.

I skipped it entirely in mine because I didn't want the burnt flavor. Not a true porter then? Fine. But it was awesome.
