dalekliz (903) - San Diego, California, USA - DEC 26, 2012
2012 bottle, #51/480. Pours a deep dark reddish-brown with a foamy off-white head. Strong and sweet whiskey aroma, with malt, wood, sugar, and a bit of hoppy bitterness. Taste is crisp and clean, of malt, juicy dark fruits, sugar, a hint of smoke, and woodsy whiskey underneath it all. Lingering clean wood and malt, with kind of a small, watery mouthfeel. Tasty BA ale, very drinkable.

A bit weak on the aroma, but makes up for this with a full mouthfeel, a touch of whiskey (not overpowering), and an appropriate malt backbone with expected underwhelming hops. Overall, a fine winter ale! ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Palme (3603) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2013
On tap @ Rattle N Hum. This is a clear dark nut red one with a small islandy light beige top. Raisin sweet malty and almost red on the aroma with some nuts. Absolutely nice. It has a soft prickling carbonation level and a oily sticky mouthfeel. In the taste I get red fruits, lots if malty richness and there is perhaps even a little bit of smoke hidden in between here? Not sure, but I am sure that it’s not a bad one. 13.06.2013

BREWMUSKCLES (2441) - New Jersey, USA - JUN 12, 2013
a beer with a butterscotch character. a little oily and the whiskey comes thru Irish like and strong making the brew a little harsh. seemingly a bit of fruit and some fermented broomstraw the brew has a holiday red plum cast. could take your mind of things. little pine and a little cherry (cough medicine like).

MightyHef (19) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 25, 2013
On tap at Tap and Handle in Fort Collins... the nose is bold with the Stanahans aging apparent even before you get the glass to your face. Bold whiskey with muted cinamon and winter spices in the background. Smooth mouthfeel gives a nice pleasant body to the experience.
