So I've made one similar to this as a partial mash with a bunch of specialty grains and 3 cans of Coopers LME (Light, Amber & Dark). I think i may have gone too hard on the roast barley, but I'm hoping 4-6 months in the cupboard smooths it out to a winner!

How much roast barley did you use? I used 500g and 250g of chocolate malt. At this stage I think that’s worked very well with the 12.3% ABV to maintain everything in balance. If the ABV was on the low side for a RIS I think it would taste too burnt. Though as you say, time generally fixes these things.

I think i used about 300g roast barley plus 200g chocolate. Plus the dark tin. Abv is aboutv10.5%
