During mashing, I was definitely getting a "graham cracker" aroma. Is that what was meant by "toasty/biscuity?" I'll try to reserve judgment until I taste the beer, but I think I see what a few of you mentioned.

Hmm...Never used GP before. From that description, im intrigued. Sounds like itd make a helluva good Brown Porter with English Brown Malt and some Chocolate Malt.

It's also the go to malt for Scotch ales.

I used about 5% aromatic malt too. I probably should've listened to you guys who said to cut back the specialty malts. I'm going to brew another Belgian Pale, and I'll try using 100% GP.

I pretty recently used GP in a Scottish 80 shilling ale and a sour-worted Oud Bruin style beer and they both came out excellent.  It has a reputation as the Scottish version of Marris Otter, and deemed by some as superior and slightly sweeter.  It provides a standout, full-flavored malt backbone.
