I use 8oz. Roasted Barley, 8oz. Chocolate Malt, and 12oz. Special B.

The Roasted Barley gives it a nice espresso flavor.

Planning: Agave Witbock, Raisin Beer
Primary: GF Hazelnut Stout
Tertiary: Cranberry-Pom pLambic (est. bottle date: 03/01/08)
Drinking: Cab.Sav/Merlot Wine, Grand Cru, Hazelnut Stout #3, Ordinary Bitter

I'm pretty sure, traditionally, roasted barley is a requirement for a true "stout" now you can make porters and dark beers with plenty of other malts... I could be completely wrong, just for some reason I believe I read that somewhere.

1/2 lb. Carafa II malt
1/4 lb. roasted barley

1.5 oz Saaz (60)

1 tsp Irish Moss (15 minutes)
A blend of:
4oz Lactose, disolved in 2 cups of boiled water
2-3 oz real vanilla extract
Added to the secondary and stirred.
