Would like some critiques of this monster before I brew. It will be going into a five gallon Rye whiskey barrel from Few Spirits in Evanston, IL. Since the focus is on the rye flavor and the oak barrel I'd like to have express it. Just afraid I'm going too heavy on the rye here. Hops are borrowed from Victory Storm King, malt base comes from Jamil's imperial stout but changed much of it to include rye as the specialty malt. Let me know what you think.

How did this turn out? In particular, how was the rye flavor and how did the mash go? I'm thinking of doing something similar.
