Default Feedback for an unusual beer. Imperial German Chocolate Stout

Well, I figured I'd give it a shot and try and design a recipe. I'm really not sure how it will turn out, so I figured I would hand this off to you guys to see if you see any big mistakes. I want this to be a sweet beer that reminds people of german chocolate cake (if that wasn't obvious from the title). Thanks for your feedback!

My concern would be with the coconut flakes. Does that have oils? If so you will kill head retention. Maybe you could get a coconut flavoring? It also looks like a "kitchen-sink" recipe. Maybe you could brew a base brew and ferment, then separate them into 1 gallon volumes to try the various other components - cocoa powder, lactose, coconut etc?

No matter what, let us know how this turns out.
