It could be, but then again the only way to know for sure is to try it out. I'm no expert, but I think the addition of both chocolate and coffee would be perhaps overpower the overall flavor profile. I would probably choose one or the other, vanilla chocolate or vanilla coffee ... Keeping it a little simpler while still adding a bit more complexity.

With that said, it is your beer and you should do what you want. Experimentation is The best part of homebrewing!

I ended up putting in 3 vanilla beans that have been soaking in 1/2 pt of makers, liquid & all, and 2 oz of coarsely ground coffee beans. We'll see what come out.

It's finally getting to the point where it's tasting good. It was very heavy on the coffee at first, and now that's starting to mellow a bit, and the vanilla & bourbon is coming through. I think another week or two and it'll be very nice.

Tried this again last night, and it tasted a bit like Coca Cola. Strange I know, but the combination of coffee, bourbon & vanilla gave it a unsweetened coke-like flavor. Not unpleasant at all, just unexpected.

I brewed a couple weeks ago and decided it was time to rack (I was bottling a previous batch at the time) and got sidetracked and forgot to add the vanilla extract. Can I just pour it into my secondary or should I rack to a tertiary doing it right this time?

Just toss it in. It's mostly alcohol. It won't mess anything up.

I'm down to just 1 or 2 bottles left from my batch of this and they still have a very good, strong vanilla flavor. I added 2-3 times more vanilla extract than the recipe called for while racking into the secondary, and the vanilla extract I used was procured at a local market in St. Martin when I was vacationing there in 2009. One friend said it was the best beer I ever made!

That's it. I'm brewing this one. My favorite beer in the world is a Vanilla Stout from my local brewery and I've been looking for a good recipe. I think I'm sold. Has anyone tried the converted all grain recipe? How did it turn out?

I'm going to add some oatmeal and add in some special vanilla extract I'm getting in Nashville with 4.9/5 rating over 120 reviews. I'll let you know how it turns out, I'm flipping excited about this one.

Here's the extract if anyone cares.

So I'll ask again - what was the verdict?
First off it came out great. By far the best beer I've made to date. It has an almost soda like flavor with the 4 vanilla beans. The main thing I'd suggest is if you go with what I have above on my earlier post that you use multiple bags, one for the oats, one for everything else. The gravity came out a bit lower than desired and because I teabagged it the oat utilization wasn't very good. But the flavor was super smooth.
