I don't think chocolate malt is an item usually used by the Belgians. They tend to use malts like special B.

Not saying not to go with it. You are using a Belgian yeast though right?

well actually i could use suggestions for a good yeast. i have been using Safeale 04 but sure this isnt the best

There are several liquid yeasts available, but if you are using dry yeast then safbrew 33 or T-58.

1214 - Belgian Ale™
1388 - Belgian Strong Ale™
1762 - Belgian Abby Ale II™

Are good liquids from wyeast. http://www.wyeastlab.com/hb_styleguidelines.cfm

There are others from white labs.
