I'm looking for a stout recipe that will include the following ingredients.
Marris otter 10lbs.
Patagonia dark chocolate 1lb
Patagonia Coffee 1lb.
Sorachi Ace hops 1 oz.
Motueka Hops 1 oz.

You will need some roasted barley for a stout. I would not waste those hops on a stout (personally)

What do you mean by"not wasting those hops on a stout" Wrong hops or not good enough? Thanks.

The bold lemon notes of Sorachi Ace would work well in lighter summer beers and the possible hints of coriander speak to many wheat styles; and both of these characteristics make it an easy choice for Saison and other Farmhouse styles. While, it’s high alpha-acid gives it a place in IPAs.

With those roast malts, it appears that the stage is mostly set for a Porter. I'm not sure that those hops would pair well in a Porter, but its possible. It would be an American Porter, although those aren't 'American' hops.
