Widmer Snowplow Clone

So...when I was in college, Widmer made an amazing beer around christmas time called Snowplow. It was freaking awesome. Then, for some unknown reason, they decided to discontinue the Snowplow and make a beer called Brrrr. Brrrr's not awful, but it's no Snowplow. On a side not, I had a friend that tried to tell me that the only difference between Snowplow (a dark malty beer) and Brrrr (a pale, spiced winter ale) is that the brewers add candy canes to the Brrrr....what a moron. Anywho, here's how I did a Snowplow clone:

7 lbs GW 2-row
2.1 lbs Briess Carapills
2.1 lbs GW crystal 60
2 lbs Red Wheat
1 lbs Flaked Oats
0.8 lbs Roasted Barley
0.4 lbs Patagonia Black

0.5 oz CTZ @60
0.5 oz Cascade @5

1 lbs Lactose @20 min.
