Playing Acol, you open 1H on the very nice-looking

S Axx
H KQJTxxx
D -
C Axx

And with opponents silent, the bidding goes:
1H - 1S (does not promise 5)
3H - 4NT (Blackwood)
5H (2 Aces) - 6D!

Now what? And what is partner holding?
I think you have to pass this. Partner sounds like a strong two-suiter with solid diamonds.
