Default tomato basil stout?

I was thinking of making a tomato stout. Maybe roast some tomatoes with wood chips and also put some fresh ones in with the boil. Was also thinking of adding some basil and thyme to the recipe.

possible malt:
40L
Roasted barley
special roast
six row
Hops:
chinook
crystal

Has anyone done a recipe like this or any opinions on the use of tomatoes?
Thanks for the feed back,
Cheers

Reminds me of a tomato-walnut ice cream I used to make.

I was thinking about doing something with tomatoes and rosemary. I wasn't set on the base style, but wouldn't say stout was near the top of my list. I haven't gotten around to researching it much. I am wondering how to deal with the acidity of the tomatoes. Here's a thread that keeps popping up on here:

I wouldn't use tomatoes if I didn't fully know what I was doing. They contain a lot of acid, which can react with the pH AND the proteins in the wort in an undesirable way. Tomato acid binds with the proteins to form the clarification raft in consomme'.
