I think the darker will better compete (balance) the high alcohol levels in this batch. More character and flavor in the D2 than the 45. I haven't brewed this recipe with 45 but have tasted it and it is a lot different than D2. It is more caramel lighter vs. chocolate, roasty etc. That said I am sure it would still make a good brew.
