Kind of resembles BrewDog's Basha. Did you get to taste it yet?

Belgian Dark Imperial Pale Ale? Don't you mean Cascadian Belgian Dark Imperial Pale Ale?

I really enjoy it. The yeast is more present than the basha. The WLP 530 has more of a peppery/clove flavor to it, next time I think I will use the 500. Ean your description may be more accurate than mine because of the hops choice, good call. I also watered it down to an OG of 1.075 to get closer to 6 gallons out of it. It still wound up at 7.8% ABV. I am proud of it. It has some nice red/orange hues and a deep off white head.

Let me know if you end up brewing it and how you like it! One of my friends just tried it and rather enjoyed it. He said it definitely tasted Stone. Which lends me to believe Chinook, Centennial, Simcoe, and Amarillo might do nicely in a variation. But I love the Warrior and Cascade combo.

I'm totally brewing this one! Subbing Centennnial for the Warrior (+1oz, 4 total) and Amarillo for the Cascade (same weight). Caravienne instead of 20L...haven't picked a yeast yet, but leaning towards the 500. Grain bill arrives in the mail next week, lhbs run for the yeasties!

It's a crystal malt, 140-155L (dark roasted) here it is: Special B Malt | MoreBeer

They appear to be out, but it's not hard to find...
