It's got the specs of a weizenbock but won't taste quite the same as you're getting colour from roast malt instead of munich and darker crystal malts. Could be an interesting one.

Yep, should be interesting! Not sure if the ratios are correct though

Your IBU/OG is a bit low but in the ball park for weizen / bock / scottish ales. On a second look you have a lot of sugar in this, might come out quite thin. Have you brewed this yet? Is there a reason you want all that dextrose?

That's what I was wondering. Might up the northern or Willamette to up the IBU to 25. Possibly half the dextrose to not thin out too.much?

Yeah, both those would probably improve the beer. I did a rough calc and dropping the dextrose completely is likely to put you around 1.052, so halving it lands you around 1.061.

Maybe even drop the volume to increase the body.

That looks like a better recipe to me, nice and strong, kinda belgian inspired weizenbock. :-) The homebrewer style special.
