Anyone have a picture of their finished product in a glass (beer porn)?

What's the point of the late edition hops, won't most of the flavor/aroma be gone after a year?

Brewing this soon. Thinking of aging in a Syrah French Oak barrel, any thoughts?

White Labs says that WLP500 should get about 75-80% attenuation. The recipe appears to get almost 90% apparent attenuation. Has anyone had trouble getting down to 1.010 with this recipe? I would fear a stall-out...

Looks like a really good recipe. I had a Casteel last week that was pretty good so looked this up. I've done other Belgians but this would be a first at Dark Strong.
'Couple of questions:
The amount of the Seeds/Grains of Paradise shows .14 tsp.
Should that be grains or some other weight?
What is the stabilizer? I've never used that. Is there another name for it?
Carbonation at 3.3 volumes seems like a lot for this style; are you sure you went that far? Might be driven by kegging.
