erickok (4073) - Tours (and Paris), - DEC 5, 2012
Dark ruby red with small beige lace. Dark fruits, apple pie, bit of fresh yeast. Taste has cookie spices, medium sweetness and generally a wintery feel to this one. Not as rich in flavour as I expect form this brewer though. Great looks but overall a bit too thin an not as exciting as I was expecting. (75cl bottle from De Bierwinkel Leiden)

Muddy brown color with caramel and milk chocolate. The mouth is slightly sour with milk chocolate and caramel. Very smooth warming butterscotch finish. Yummy.

Sampled from a 750 ml bottle from old notes. Pours a hazy caramel brown color with reddish highlights and a small beige head. The aroma and flavor have sweet caramel and toffee malts, dark fruits, cherry, figs, yeast, smooth, easy to drink, but definitely sweet.

AirForceHops (4064) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 28, 2015
750 ml bottle purchased at Bottles in R.I. Dirty brown/red color, thin lasting head. Aroma is a hearty dose of Belgian yeast with molasses, and mild spice. Flavor has nice roasted grain, scotch malts, with hints of subdued peat. The yeast really makes a nice addition to this style. The alcohol is totally masked... Wow this is a nice treat.

Poured from bottle thanks Adrian. Pours copper color with bubbly thin head. Aromas of caramel and pitted fruits. Sweet herby taste of bread and fruit. Very smooth.

750ml opened with no problems...no gushing. Hazy to cloudy deep brown, beautiful looking brew complete with a 1 finger of off white foam and pretty lacing. Smells of candi sugar, pitted fruits, toasted malt that is almost smokie, booze. Toasted malt and fruits are up front, gets a bit sweet from the candi sugar, an inherent booziness in the taste(heck, it’s called Winterscotch), finishes slightly bitter with more booze. The foam has subsided but it’s still nice to look at. I see the abv is at 9.5% abv but to me, it drinks stronger and so I need to slow this session and review down a bit. Initial thoughts are that I’m going to score this on the low side as I have done with most beers of the style, which I am taking as Wee Heavy based on the name/label and how it is listed on the brewery website. Waiting and slowly sipping will perhaps bring out my palate familiarity and maybe something nice will happen to change my mind. Medium bodied in general, a tad too much carbonation for my palate, the mouthfeel is only okay. All right, I have given Canaster every chance I can to shine for me and it doesn’t. It’s not a terrible brew, it just does not inspire me to think aboot buying another bottle. Oh well, it has it’s fans and that’s cool.

Bottle from total wine. Tons of head. Average smell but everything else is fabulous. Rich sweet flavors. Caramel but not too much. Touch of shotch. Splendid

Lilja (1950) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 22, 2015
Flaska från SB. Smak och doft av humle, torkad frukt, karamell, belgisk jäst, brunt socker, vinterkryddor med toner av banan och örter. Fina smaker, lagom sötma och god beska.

Holmen1 (3215) - Stavanger, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2015
0,75 flaske fra Belgisk Bryg (tappet 09.11.13 iflg omslagspapiret - en original emallasje,mingen etikett, nøytral flaskekork), delt med Kitty som opptakt til 60-års dagen (ikke min...), på hytta 3.nyttårsdag: ingen champagnesmell men du verden for et champagneskum ut over bordet. Aroma av bær, fiken, svisker, rosin, nellik og karamell. Smaken setter oss i bursdagsstemning, vi skålr og gjør oss klar til en cykeltur til Tivoli, gløgg med mørk rom og fyrverkeri!

larsniclas (5902) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JAN 3, 2015
Bottled from Systembolaget Chestnut colour with a large, bubbly tan head. Fruity, metallic aroma with notes of brown sugar. Sweetish, herby flavour with some berries in it.
