Not blown away by my blue chimay

I had a trappist for the first time last night. I wasn't struck with awe like I expected to be. I thought it was nice and complex, but maybe a bit harsh. And the foam (what's the appropriate word) was very, oh, root beery. Big but not smooth. It didn't complement the beverage like on a guinness. At this point, I'd rather a good IPA. I like dogfish head's selection. Am I missing something? Should I try a different trappist? Am I unrefined? Am I going to finish the bottle? of course.
