How did this turn out???? Also, when did you put the adjuncts in?

Steeping Grains:
1.2 lbs. crystal
.25 lbs. carapils
.4 lbs. chocolate
.35 oz. Willamette whole (60 mins)
1 oz. Cascade (60 mins)

Additional Ingredients: 3 whole vanilla beans, 1.5 lbs. 'Golden syrup', 6 oz. Molasses

I live in Boston and used to work for a company out of Vancouver. My first time to BC our CEO took us to Granville Island for dinner (Sand Bar) and I happened upon Lions Winter Ale. From then on I only went to Vancouver in the winter so I could go straight to the nearest pub and have a few pints. This is one of my favorite beers. Sadly you can't get it anywhere in the states. I would love to get a reasonably good clone going. Has anyone else had any luck? Any adjustments to the recipe listed here?

So what yeast did you use.? or suggest to get the closest thing to the gib winter ale. and add the vanila at the end of the boil? and molasses and golden syrup during the boil?
