I brewed this in early March, pitched two packets of S-05 with OG 1.098. I had some temperature fluctuations on day 1, where it was a really warm March day in Michigan, and my apartment was 80 or so, and then got really cold (like low 50s) in the room I put the fermenter in. It took off quickly, and bubbled furiously for a week or so.
Let it sit in primary for a month before bottling in early April. Conditioned for two months, until my birthday on 6/11, and...it is delicious. Quite sweet, but not too much. Very balanced, especially for a high-gravity beer. I am going to let the rest sit for another several months (if I can bear to wait!) and see how it tastes.
I wonder how this might taste with some chocolate in the fermenter. Maybe I'll try that next time.
