Any thoughts?

Thanks!
 
Full or partial boil?
You may want to add some simple sugar to dry it out a bit.
Black malt?
I'm not familiar with that beer, but without more information on the recipe, I can't really give more advice.
OG/FG ?
Info from the Brewery?
Seems like the bittering may be a bit low.
 
Overall looks like a solid recipe but there is one change that I would make....get ride of the dark extract. Use the lightest possible extract you can find and then use your specialty grains to color your beer. There are a fine selection of dark grains that don't contribute astringency. Best of luck.

CHEERS!!!
