Grain:
9.0 lbs. (4.1 kg) American pale malt
3.0 lbs. (1.4 kg) Munich malt (10 L)
1.0 lb. (0.45 kg)  American Black Patent malt (500 L)
0.67 lbs. (0.30 kg)  American crystal malt (60 L)

Hops:
14 AAU Magnum hops (60 mins) (1.0 oz./28 g of 14% alpha acids)

good call with cutting back the black patent. 1 pound is a litte excessive I thought too. Brewed with a couple ounces of it once and it comes through tasting like an ashtray if too much ... so strong

I made this as an extract several months back and happy with it. It's bottled.  
OG 1.070 (I really didn't want it that high)
It ended at 1.016 for a 7.06%ABV
Used WY1056. Was initially against using this yeast for a stout. It didn't make sense to me but Sierra Nevada is pretty much my favorite brewery so I went through the motions. Swapped Fuggles for the aroma same as you. I will make this AG same as above next time I can.

I actually would have gone for the recipe as-is with the 454g of Black Patent. It turned out, I only had 150g left when I went to mill my grains (inventory tracking fail). I think my blend will serve as a nice substitute.

I made a Sweet Stout over a year ago that used a pound of Black Patent, and it came out tasting very nice. Didn't seem too roasty at all.

Now, using a pound in a lower-gravity stout that attenuates well, however, would likely have different results.

I have two 5 pound bags of black patent from one of the last grain orders if you're interested. The chances of me using 10 pounds of that over the next year or two is slim. Interested?
