I plan to make the Bourbon Vanilla Imperial Porter as my holiday beer this year. Wondering when I should brew so it is ready for Xmas.

It doesn't require a long aging period at all. I've been drinking it at 3 weeks after brewing. The vanilla can be a little strong at first but will mellow with a little aging. Mine usually ages in the keg while getting sampled. The flavors and complexity do change some over time though.

Yep...like Vance says, a few weeks is plenty of time. IMO, aging it too long diminishes the flavors
LIfe begins at 60...1.060, that is.
