Will it prove to be too much? I'm almost tempted to oak half of it, for the namesake alone! I know similar beers have been done before, but here's my currently-fermenting batch of blacked-out, rye-spiked, Belgian fermented IIPA:
BigBeerGeek's Belgian Rye Double India Black Ale
45% 2 row
20% malted rye
10% crystal 60
10% midnight wheat
+ 0.5 lbs table sugar
Hops (cleaned out my freezer of all my domestic pellets!)
@90: 1 oz galena
@5: 2.5 oz galena, 1.63 oz columbus, 1 oz summit, 1 oz centennial
20 minute whirlpool @ 150*F: 2 oz amarillo, 1 oz centennial, 1 oz columbus, 2 oz galena
5 day dry hop: 0.5 oz summit, 1.5 oz amarillo, 2 oz centennial, 2 oz galena
WLP500, rinsed from previous batch, slight underpitch, fermented warm.
I'll update with tasting notes in a month or two.
