I'd drop the amount of Roasted Barley down to around 4% and add some biscuit or victory for a toasty note. I'd also sub the 120L for some 80L to get more caramel and less raisin.

If your going for a more coffee roasty flavor, I'd stick with your schedule for Roasted but I'd even out the 120L and the chocolate to around 6% and maybe even sub pale chocolate for the standard chocolate. You have lots of roast going on.
