I personally would use more carafa II and no black patent. The less roast, the better.

Have you seen or read this article about late hop additions. http://www.mrmalty.com/late_hopping.php

I now save a majority of my hops for late hop additions. By using a hopstand, I personally think you get much more of the hop flavor and aroma.
If you don't get in over your head, how are you ever going to know how tall you are.

thanks for the link.  i've heard chatter about that recently, which is what i'm hoping for here.  i'll have to look into hopstands.  i'm not familiar. 

i have de-bittered black, but no lhbs.  :(

would that help?

Debitter is what I would use instead of the Black paten. By using debittered black malt, a dark malt with the husk reduced, you don't get the bitter astringency that sometimes comes with dark grains.

I use carafa sp. II because that's what my lhbs carries.
