Sean, I like honey malt.  I probably wouldn't use 12%, but you can certainly do 5% with excellent results, or maybe 7 or 8% without it getting too overpowering.  Go for it.

The world will become a much more pleasant place to live when each and every one of us realizes that we are all idiots.

Agreed. I would probably do like 6% honey malt and 6% CaraVienne or Carastan or Crystal 20L if it was me.
