Looks great to me, though the fermentation time looks suspect, I would leave a beast like that on the yeast for a month. In any case I imagine after some age and dry hopping (after the aging) it would be really nice. Quite dark with the crystal and special B, but nice.

From 1.145 to 1.008? What planet did the yeast come from?

I'd add some orange juice.
