comment checking gravity during and after fermentation?
Wow, that's really narrow! My baster is maybe an inch in diameter. It's hard to imagine a carboy opening smaller than that. A thief is larger than my baster, so you may have problems with it.

I don't think utilization itself would be lower, but IBUs likely would be for the reason you state.

comment I might have pitched at too low a temperature
Are you sure about the OG? Kit beers almost never are off on OG. Is it possible that it could be incomplete mixing giving you a false reading? Can you post what you used for fermentables?

comment How long should a Belgian Strong Dark Ale be aged?
If you're going to be brewing many Belgian beers, you owe it to yourself to pick up a copy of "Brew Like a Monk". IMO there is no better info on Belgian beers and how they're brewed.
