Does anyone have a recipe for Santa's Little Helper by Port Brewing? I prefer all grain, but will take what i can get.

Not a clone recipe, but based on Port Brewing’s website, the tasting notes from Beer Advocate, and starting from Brewpastor’s Dark Night of the Soul RIS, I came up with the following, which could serve as a jumping off point.

Efficiency 70%

Fermentables
Pale two-row 12 lbs.
Dark Munich 2 lbs.
Roasted barley 24 oz.
Chocolate malt 24 oz.
Crystal 80L 12 oz.
Crystal 120L 12 oz.
Brown sugar 16 oz.

Hops
CTZ, FWH 1 oz.
CTZ, 60 min. 0.5 oz.
CTZ, 30 min. 0.5 oz.

Yeast Nottingham or S-04 (or other English-style ale yeast), two (or more) packages

OG 1091, FG 1021, ABV 9.2, SRM 40, IBU 66

Dredged up this thread in a search. My wife adores SLH from Port Brewing. I would love to make her a couple of cases. In all my web searching, this is the closest to a recipe I've gotten. Anyone have any suggestions? I'm a little worried about the brown sugar creating odd flavors once it's boiled off. I think Yooper said something about it doing that in another stout recipe. Any help appreciated.
