Default Bad Santa from BYO

My next batch was going to be "Bad Santa" that was in the winter warmer section of this months BYO magazine. Unfortunately over my thanksgiving holiday I lost the magazine at my in-laws house and it may never return. I was wondering if any BYO subscribers could help me out. I'm not sure about copyright stuff, I remember how much maple syrup and black patent was in it as well as the hop schedule, I just don't remember a lot of the rest. If someone could type up the rest of the grain bill(all-grain) that would be awesome.

Did you end up brewing this? I'm just getting ready to add the vanilla bean and cinnamon in the secondary. I'm wondering how it turned out.

I decided to push it back a month or two, but I have all the ingredients and am looking forward to it. Since I pushed it back, you let me know how it turns out.

I just kegged mine 3 days ago. The vanilla came through really strong. I'm hoping getting the carbonation to the right level and a little time will drop the intensity a little. I didn't add the cherrys so I don't know if that would help offset the vanilla. I'll try to update after the carbonation is right.

did you just add one bean? I may tweak the recipe a bit. I am definitely keeping the vanilla but I will probably drop the cinnamon. I don't mind if vanilla dominates the aroma, just not the taste.

Just 1 bean. Both flavor and aroma are very pronounced.

Resurrecting an old thread, but curious how this turned out, did the vanilla ease off with the carbonation, did anybody add the cherries??
