Just fishing for some opinions regarding hopping of what I hope will be a really fierce 15% ABV Belgian loosely based on the dark strong style (Imperial Quadruple...?). I plan on aging it for a year (and more) and was going to target about 70 IBUs with all that in mind - about double the maximum for a normal dark strong IBU wise.
Belgians tend to ferment out drier than other styles, so will the 70 IBUs be too much or just enough to mellow out over the long haul, or not high enough.
Interested in hearing from anyone who has taken a crack at something obscenely alcoholic.
Thanks in advance.
