Man does this violently ferment! 5 1/2 gal in a 7 1/2 primary and it was spewing out the blow off tube. I lost maybe a 1/2 gal.

I brewed a week ago today. Within 3 hours I could tell I needed to get a big blow off tube ready. Like you said, it was pretty violent. Within 48 hours it settled down so I went to my normal setup and was getting activity about every 15 seconds. Within 4 days it picked up again, activity every 5 seconds..... I may name this "Strange Brew". Sure does smell good!

After 3 weeks I transferred to the secondary. I plan on bottling this weekend, and will add cold infused coffee and homemade vanilla extract.

Coffee sounds great. BTW did you use 3 vanilla beans? Did they not produce enough aroma as you are adding vanilla?

I made a vanilla tincture several months ago, and prefer to use a homemade vanilla extract in my flavored beers. The logic being that I can control the flavor by adding a little at a time to the bottling bucket. After the beer is bottled I add more beans to the tincture and Iíll be ready for the next time I want to use vanilla.

Does this take a while to Carb? I've had it on gas for over 3 weeks and its still pretty flat.

Yes, imperial stouts can really take a long time to carb. I made a Southern Tier Mokah clone, and it probably took 3-4 weeks on gas. I was really confused as well. Have no worries! But don't be in any hurry; this beer will likely need some time to age anyways. Mine sure did.

I know I should wait, but I was hopping to have some by Xmas. Should I force it a little higher or actually buy some xmass gifts?

Anyone ever thought about adding fruit to this one? I bought a can of cherry puree while at the brew store and I am debating on whether to through it in the secondary.
