    1.0 lb (0.45 kg) roasted barley
    1.0 lb (0.45 kg) lactose (15 minutes before end of boil)
    0.75 lb (340 g) 60° L crystal malt
    1 lb (340 g) Munich malt
    1 lb (340 g) chocolate malt
    0.5 lb (227 g) flaked barley
    0.5 lb (227 g) flaked oats
    0.3 oz (8.5 g) Magnum pellet hops, 13% a.a. (60 min)
    1.0 oz (28 g) E.K. Goldings pellet hops, 5% a.a. (10 min)

    15% roasted malt seems like a lot to me. I would probably drop the RB and Chocolate by 1/4# each but that is probably just my personal preference.

    Also maybe simplify by using flaked barley or oats but not both. One pound of Munich may be unnecessary as well.

    No experience with Darkness. I believe it is the equivalent of Irish Ale yeast (WLP004, WY1084)?
