I made this beer with a bit of a modified recipe and it took 1st in the Belgian category and 3rd in BOS - I'd highly suggest making this beer!! Mine came out to approximately 11.7% ABV - while it was a little warm, it was still very delicious.

8.00 lb Pilsner (2 Row) Bel (2.0 SRM) Grain 42.11 %

1.00 oz Styrian Goldings [4.10 %] (20 min) Hops 7.0 IBU
0.50 oz Hallertauer Hersbrucker [2.80 %] (20 min)Hops 2.4 IBU

3.00 lb Dark 2 Belgian Candi Syrup (160.0 SRM) Sugar 15.79 %

I just transferred this recipe to the secondary. So far, it's fermented from an OG of 1.070 to 1.014. Given how explosive the fermentation was, I'm shocked it still may have more to go! 2 more weeks before bottling...at least.

And it tastes amazing! This is going to be a serious ale--should keep me very warm this winter!
