Probably not bad. No black malt or black patent may mean it lacks a bit of roastiness. It looks like it lands halfway between an English-style Brown Porter and an American Brown Ale. Read the style BJCP guideline for 10C and 11A and you will see what I mean. Sounds like it should taste good, lots of body and mouthfeel.

I would cut the hops down to 1/2 to 3/4 oz. I prefer dominant malt flavors in a porter, with the hops in the background. If you prefer a hoppy porter, just leave it as is. The recipe sounds yummy!!!
