I had this beer last week and fell in love with it Lost Coast Beers.
It's described as, "A full-bodied brown ale, with a rich chocolate taste created from roasted chocolate and caramel malts. Topped with Czech Saaz hops to give it a spicy flavor and aroma."

I have never made Zymurgy's Lucky 13 Brown Ale but it seems like a close starting point:

Willamettes are an American variant of Fuggles. They have a very nice quality but I wouldn't call it the same as the spicy character of Saaz. Otherwise the significant amounts of chocolate and crystal malt should provide the flavor notes you are seeking.

I agree 100% Bill, thanks for the input!

Happy Holidays!
