I'm far from an experienced stout brewer (in fact, I've done one, and it's still bottle conditioning - ). However...I think maybe cut out one of the roasted barley or black patent.

I used 500g of chocolate malt in mine, and nothing else really dark, and it's as black as the night and has significant 'burnt malt' bitterness (or it did when I tasted it at bottling).

Perhaps a more experienced stout brewer will happen along...

You are exactly right.

brewhead, I'd drop the black patent completely and go with somethign like 1 lb. crystal 120 and .5 lb each of chocolate and roasted barley.

Otherwise, it looks like an EXCELLENT recipe.

Looks nice! I might add that I hope you're serious about it being sweet, because with 1lb of lactose, it definitely will be!

Also, a note on that yeast. It's really flocculant, and will drop out on you. I'm not saying it's a bad choice, just that you might have to rouse them some to get it fermented down properly.
