Default I want to try a Christmas classic that my family makes....5 flavor pound cake

I am very very new to beer brewing and have done one 6.5 gal batch of mead and one 5 gal batch of Maple Syrup Brown Ale, from extract.

Can anyone help me figure out (explain) or tip me off to a recipe that allows for the standard 5 flavors? It may be a bit much, but may offer a fun experiment.

The flavors are:
Coconut
Rum
Lemon
Vanilla
Almond

Sorry if this isn't how the section works, but wanted something to share around christmas as well as learn a bit outside of using a kit. I did think about possibly instead of rum, using bourbon for it's vanilla character...

I'd brew a brown Ale or a Porter and then just add those 5 things to secondary.

Would roasting the almonds be best or would powdering/crushing be sufficient you think?
