Seems a bit dark and high gravity to me. I'd consider dropping the Chocolate and some of the pale malt, but I like my dunkels to be not as dark as a schwarzbier.

It's a little dark but well within specs. I would swap the Munich and Pale amounts then cut the Carafa and Chocolate back a bit. Not crazy about the late hop additions either but YMMV. A Dunkel is all about the Munich IMO...

All good points.... the hop addition at flameout wasn't intentional, that has been removed and I played with the grains as suggested... here is the updated recipie.
