Could anyone evaluate this recipe for me?

It is supposed to be an English Ale, but is coming out really dark more like a porter.

Is this still an a english ale? What makes it cross over the line into a porter?

It looks like the main difference between 11C and 12A is really color and nutty (11C) vs chocolate/roasty (12A) as far as I can tell.
