I really don't like this beer, and if the OP doesn't like em too hoppy I think he should stay away.

If you like Scottish Ales then the maltier Belgian styles should appeal to you. Try some Dubbels or Quads. Corsendonk Abbey Brown is great. St. Feullien might be too sweet, but Delirium Nocturne is a nice widely appealing beer. Westmalle makes a nice one too.

Also if you haven't tried Orval its nice and dry.

Elaborating on what I recommended. I agree, and you also seem to be a big fan of Abbey ales, specifically Trappist Abbey ales. Have you ever been able to get your hands on Westvleteren?

I had this in Brussels and really loved it. The bitterness of the hops was balanced nicely with the sweetness of a Tripel, very tasty.

Now I want to brew a clone of this.

OT but I saw a comment in a CNN article today and the poster referred to the country of "Belgian".

I'm a big fan of a lot of beers

Unfortunately I have not gotten my hands on a Westy, but I will one day. I was in Brussels only for 1 day because the rest of my group were pansies and wanted to see Paris. Only got to have a couple pints in a cafe near the train station, but nothing I couldn't get over here anyway. I'll go back and spend some time touring around with some beer geeks eventually.

P.S. Paris was a waste of time and money (the trip started in Amsterdam)
