I don't think you will get much roast character.  I would lower the crystal to maybe a pound and up your chocolate to .75 or 1 lb., but that's just my tastes.

nice scores!  I think competitions can be helpful in reinforcing your own feelings about your own beers.

I think I skimmed over the boiling part in #3.  I think adding 1/3 of your water boiling will put you over 168.

#1 and #3 will give you similar efficiency, give or take a few points.  #2 is not sparging and would give you lower efficiency.

My friend drove quite a few hours to try a bacon beer in Michigan (can't remember the brewery) and he was very disappointed....I just laughed ::)

If you cleaned it that many times and it still smells, I say get a new one.

Kegging a Rye IPA and Porter.  Brewing an APA due to the unusually warm weather.

Sometimes I have found that I am my biggest critic of my beers.  Maybe you are being a little too harsh on yourself gmac.

I made a Belgian Ale with 80% Munich and it came out great.

Since you bottled after 9 days, part pf the bitterness you're experiencing could be yeast that's still in suspension.  On your next batch, leave it in the fermenter for 2-3 weeks.  That will promote a cleaner beer.
+1000 patience in this area will reward you with better beer.  Even if the gravity doesn't drop after 9 days, the yeast are still doing some clean up work.

I always enjoy Highland beers when I visit my brother in Johnson City.  I also like the Asheville Pizza and Beer Co. (I think that's what it is called).

I made a Porter on Sat.  Tonight, I'm going to bottle my Blueberry wine ( I tasted a sample last night and it already tastes better than last year's).

I wouldn't use the champagne yeast, just use a large starter.
