Default Samoa Stout

I've been wanting to brew a stout and had a thought last night, what about a Stout that tastes like a Samoa!

I plan for and routinely rack 6 gallons into the primary, BTW.

Here's what I'm thinking for a grain bill:
1 lb flaked wheat
1 lb 4 oz chocolate malt
1 lb 8 oz Crystal 80
7 lb 4 oz 2-row

151 for 75 minutes

Hops and other BK additives:
8 oz caramelized sucrose,
1 oz Tet @ 60,
1 oz Tet @ 20,
2 split vanilla beans at 5 minutes,
.75 lbs cocoa powder at flameout

Added at Secondary:

16 oz toasted coconut
.5 lbs cocoa powder


Haven't settled on yeasties yet but questions, why, yes I have questions, thanks for asking:

1. Do you think I will get the Caramel, Chocolate and coconut flavors I'm looking for?

2. What ways are there of adding to the body without increasing OG and FG?

3. Will toasted Coconut completely destroy any head I would hope to have on this brew?

4. What do you think? Critique away, I really would like to settle on a recipe in the next week or two for my next brew day!

Happy Brewing!

I just had the same idea... And I knew immediately someone here has/ would try this. I'm wondering how well this works out for you/ if anyone else has some ideas on how to improve this recipe. Also, I bet a Samoa stout would be great on nitro.

That would probably be a porter since it has no roast. And I'd probably cut down the chocolate to 1lb.

If you want a stout then I'd probably go .5 lbs of both chocolate and roast

Thanks, that's what sort of insight I'm seeking on where to start. I'm gonna brew an IPA on Friday and my next project will be this..

The jury is still out on hops but this is my next brew. I had to push it off to get a couple winners brewed up for a local comp. 23 or 24 April is brew day.

Just had the same idea, and a quick search resulted in this thread. Every time I think I come up with something original, someone has beaten me to the punch! I'd love to hear how it ended up. I'd love an Extract-friendly recipe that would include those chocolate, coconut, and caramel flavors!

mmm coconut sounds good, anyone think you could get the flavor by putting it in the last couple minutes of the boil?

What is a Samoa? Isn't that a country?
