Default Help me decide what to brew

My brew rig is almost complete. Just waiting on a few more shipments to come in over the next week or so with hardware, and a pump and chiller I'll be getting for Christmas. Plan on taking it for its maiden voyage with a double 10 gallon brew day beginning on New Years eve and wrapping up sometime on new years day.

I'd like to brew a black ipa (or a cda) and also a beer that will age well for about a year. Would like to drink the later during the NYE 2013 brew day.

What would you do?
