Took gravity reading on 2/10/09 and got 1.040, very sweet and slightly biting
Took gravity reading on 2/21/09 and got 1.034, bubbling had completed stopped, racked to keg, chilled and carbonated.
Bulk aged in fermentation fridge until 3/21/09, put on tap for a few weeks for sampling, then bottled on 4/14/09.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

My inspiration for this beer was basically to make a Double Bastard-ish Barleywine/Imperial Strongale kicked up a notch or two. When it was green it was so sweet and crazy tasting I was thinking of dumping it, but persistence won the day and as it aged it got to be pretty awesome. It didn't quite turn out how I expected, but everyone I've shared this with has absolutely raved about it.

The use of 2lbs of Candi Sugar is intentional, while the 3lbs of ex-light DME is to up my OG because my 10G mashtun can't take more. Increase your base malt if you have a large enough mashtun to do a 1.133 OG brew and drop the ex-light DME.

This beer is one of the ones I sent off to Longshot 2009. Yeah I ignored that 1.070 "guideline"

Appearance: Pours a hazy dark copper with a thin, fading off-white crown. Some lacing.
Aroma: Sweet Caramel, light candied dark fruit, fig, some banana esters
Flavor: Woah, intense! Sweet, light caramel, candied dark fruit, balanced slightly against some detectable bitterness. Some hop flavors, but they are definitely in the background.
Mouthfeel: Definitely on the sweeter side, but not cloying. Finishes pretty clean with only mild lingering caramel sweetness.
Overall: This is an intense beer, no two ways about that. Its kind of like a Double Bastard got it on with a Tripel.

Brewed it.

Pitched on a Cali Ale F3 cake, and it wasnt 6 hours till the airlock blew off.

Then this beast boiled a gallon of starsan through the blow off tube for two days.
She finally slowed down, but something tells me fermentation temp was a little high.

How long should I promary this one? 3 or 4 months?

I would do a month in primary and two months in secondary at least. This beer needs some time.
