Default Bottle Condition Time on a High Gravity Beer

So we just finished our third and final Partial Grain batch of beer (finally ready to move on to AG ). It was a Brown Ale with molasses, beet sugar, and maple syrup out of Sam Caligones Extreme Brewing book.

Our OG was 1.078 and our TG was 1.005

So my question is what should be our minimum bottle conditioning time before we open up the first one for a sample? Don't want to waste any beer due to premature opening.

I would say wait at least 6 weeks in the bottle before sampling. With the ingredients you put in there, you have some pretty complex flavors that need to meld.
