I brewed this beer with special b (lhbs didn't have the dark crystal) and few other minor modifications and it turned out great.

I did a 2.5gal batch. Here's my recipe:

3lbs 14oz Maris Otter
10oz flaked barley
7oz dingemans special B (LHBS didn't have extra dark crystal)
6oz Briess roasted barley
6oz Muntons chocolate malt
6oz Briess Special Roast (LHBS didn't have brown malt)
Hershey's Cocoa Powder 3oz at 15 min (used lowfat but would use non-fat in the future - it may have interfered with carbonation a little).
Lactose 8oz at 15min
Cacao Nibs 4oz (soaked in Grey Goose vodka for ~3 days) in primary 4 days prior to bottling.
Didn't do secondary.

Used Willamette @ 60min for bittering to ~31 IBU's (I could have probably pushed it up a bit higher).

Mashed at 155 for an hour.
Used Irish Ale yeast.

There was some tanginess to it that I really enjoyed. Don't know if it was due to the yeast or maybe the Special Roast. Chocolate not overwhelming though definitely there. Planning on brewing it again this winter.

Just ordered all the ingredients online from Northern Brewer.....$85.77. I was like, Damn! This turned out to be an expensive 5 gallon batch!!! Ordered anyway..... Then realized it was for a 10 gal batch. Oops.

You could try upping the hop additions I bet, and make it a HUGE Imperial stout for 5 gallons.

Although... That would be an expensive all grain batch for sure.. I just did one that was 1.100 and cost me less than 40 locally.

I just did a 10g batch of a wee heavy. 45 pounds of grain. I felt so manly walking out of Annapolis Home Brew with a 55# bag of MO.
