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

8 Lbs. Pale male extract
1.2 lbs. crystal
.25 lbs. carapils
.4 lbs. chocolate
.35 oz. Willamette whole (60 mins)
1 oz. Cascade (60 mins)
.5 oz. Sterling whole (Finishing)
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?
