Default bourbon oak chips in a milk stout?

I was drinking a sweet stout that I brewed from an NB kit a few months ago, and I had a momentary vision of what one might taste like with a bit of vanilla bourbon flavor.......Mmmmmm

does this defeat the purpose of a milk stout? would it be too sweet? has anyone ever made one like this?

Here's the recipe I have worked up based on Jamil's BCS recipe, and aside from an internal black patent vs roasted barley argument, I would likely soak some oak chips in bourbon for a couple weeks and secondary this beer with them for 10 days....less? more? would this give a hint of vanilla or would I want to add a small dose of that too? how many oak chips would I want to use? hit me with your expertise......

I think if you did it right it would work out great. The oak and bourbon will give some smokey, vanilla notes, but will not sweeten it anymore. Go for it!
