Black Douglas Ale

Could anyone give me a recipe for an extract recipe that would approximate Broughton's Black Douglas Ale? I would GREATLY appreciate it.

I am kind of a 'beer cloner'. I find one I like in the bar, and I can get pretty close from tasting it. Since I've never had that beer I had to research it, and came up with this receipe. I've made this beer before, just modified it a bit to get the character you desired. Below is the fuit of my labor.
6 pounds, 2-row pale malt
3 pounds, Munich Malt
1 pound, black patent malt
4 ounces, Crystal Malt (80L)
(~1.0 oz @11.6) Centennial hops (60 min)
(~0.75 oz @12.6) Chinook hops (60 min)
1/2 ounce, Cascades (30)
1 ounce, Kent Goldings (dry hop at rack to secondary)
Wyeast 1084 (Irish Ale)
1/2 cup corn sugar (priming)

To get an extract version use the formula that 1 pound of grain is equal to .75 lbs. of extract.
Good Luck,
Malt Vault

Thanks,Maltvault. I'll convert it to extract and make it by your recipe. I'm getting close to all-grain, but not yet. Thanks again. Maybe I can impose on you again?
