Canaster Winterscotch Ale

750 mL bottle from Arbor Place Beverage, Douglasville, GA, USA from late 2008.
Capped bottle is a BIG gusher – be warned. Poured into the Ommegang chalice the beer forms a mid-brown Dubbel color and a small fine head with a creamy consistency. Plenty of yeast floaties.
Nose is sherry alcohol based.
This beer is pretty much Strong Belgian Dark all the way through. Large fruit raisin and plum notes with the alcohol poking its head through to give a nice warmth. Figs and more rich, dark, over-ripe fruits.
Lovely fine bubbles give a superb mouthfeel.
Tasty and nice to get back to a really good example of the style.
