Notes

Trying to bring some of the malt bill charecteristics from darker belgian ales and add them to a belgian pale ale strength bill.

Went with belgian abbey yeast instead of belgian ale yeast to get slightly more subdued yeast character, but still ester production.

Light chocolate might be a bit too dark for the rest of the beer
