0.5lbs Chocolate Malt
0.5lbs Crystal Malt
0.25lbs Roasted Barley
2oz Cascade hops (60min)?

Well it looks ok but I think it will finish a little sweet. The general crass I am getting when I put it into BeerTools is an American Stout 13E. Your color is super dark,50srm. You could switch out the dark LME with Amber and it would still be pretty dark about 30 SRM. The Weizen yeast? why? any nice flavors that it may produce will be covered by the roasty flavor I think.
Cascade 2oz. You will need a flavor addition but with just the 2 @60min you end at 41 IBU not to bad on IBU but you have alot of roasty flavors in there and this will still not be too dry. I would toss in .[email protected] also. to balance out the sweetness.
