We have a local beer called Ominous that I really like is described on their website as a winter warmer . For my next all grain beer, I would like to make something very similar need to try and create the recipe based on the information they provide:

Clouds grow dark, the wind picks up, a chill sets in -- the weather is not looking good. Thankfully, our winter seasonal OMINOUS is the perfect beer for this situation. Warming from the inside out, it’s a good reason to stay indoors. At 7.5% abv, this Midwest Warmer has layers to stand up to the most frigid of winter nights or rain-soaked spring days. American, English and Belgian malts come together to satisfy the soul with a rich, nutty, roasted flavors. Dark candi sugar brings out hints of dates, raisins, plum and chocolate. OMINOUS is a dark storm of a beer - big, intense and something to keep your eye on.

7.5% ABV
IBU: 40
Malts: American & British Pale, Caramel, Belgian
Other: Oats, Candied Sugar
Hops: American Hops

Would that be enough information to get something relatively close? Anyone have any suggestions?
