This was intended to be a little heavy on the OG side and upped in the Hop amount for bittering. The beer smelled great during the boil. I know hop IBU is fairly high but I like a little more hoppy wit. I will post an edit when its time to keg or bottle (haven't decided). Hope you all enjoy if you try it!

Looks really good, but I am going to stay away from Big Belgian until I get my kegs set up. Last one I did took 6 months to carb up, and whould rather just do it in a keg in week. I did want to mark this post becuase I try this beer in amout two or three months.
