Belgium Beer Tasting!

I enjoyed a Belgium beer tasting at Beltramo's in Menlo Park yesterday. All beers were respectable to excellent. I enjoyed the Allagash Black the most.  Below are the tastes poured and the list of beers shown in the lower middle. I've added one or two words next to each glass which represents my impressions.I liked the Allagash Black and bough a 4 pack. Lots of things going on with this beer on my palette. Smokiness is there but it does not dominate. Compared to Duval non of these would be similar. I would question if number 3 (Prankster) is just a golden ale and should not have even been placed in the tasting.
