Thanks for the recipe Chshre! A bastardization of your recipe (forgot the oats at the LHBS and added a little lactose) placed 2nd in Stouts (8 entries) at the Badger Brew-Off. This being my second all grain batch I'm pretty pleased with it and can't wait for my scoresheet back. I'm going to definitely brew it again, the way it was meant to be. Although SWMBO really likes the lactose...and I'm on the fence. Anyway, cheers. Everyone loves it.
EDIT: By the way it was less than a month in bottles when it was judged. To me, this beer is excellent young. I think the lactose has something to do with that since it, along with the vanilla, sort of rounds out and softens the chocolate bitterness that, combined with the roastiness, could overpower a little when young.
