Default Spiced/Christmas Amber Ale - thoughts/suggestions

A while back I brewed Jamil's American amber ale from BCS...It is really good. I want to make a holiday beer and hoped to just adapt/add-on to this recipe. Here is my adaptation below. I have added some malt to increase the ABV from 5.5 to about 7%. I plan to add cinnamon, nutmeg, and hazelnut probably at end of boil. Still working on that aspect but wanted to get this board's view on my base recipe. Thanks
