I agree with everything DeathBrewer says. Including the mug thingy.

What I am thinking is a 1.088 with about 80 IBUs. Mash high to give it a good mouth feel - thick and velvety, maybe 154 -156 degrees. I usually have mashed lower but the judges at the nationals wanted more mouth feel, so this would give it to them, while keeping the beer at a level you could survive drinking. Use an English 2-row, like Crisp MO, keep the specialty grains at about 20% with 10% or so being roasted grains mixed between chocolates and roasted. Use higher colored crystals to get the plum/raisin tones so it mellow well with the sherry tones of aging. Maybe hops at 60, 10 and end. Use Horizons, EKG or something like that. Boil for a couple hours to concentrate the wort, maximize extraction and form melanodians (or however you spell it). I want a brew that will be finished enough to drink in 8 months, but with the strength to lay down for a few years.

Folks who had my RIS in Denver, what do you think?

I am getting thirsty...

Wouldn't adding melanoidin malt help with the maltiness as well?

Yes, but I figure I will be boiling this pig long anyway. For an extract brew I would say definately throw in the melanoidin malt, but in the All-grain I could call it black or white.
