Glass of the month for January 2013 at Winking Lizard Crosswoods. Darkest brown pour with a medium beige head. Aroma of malt, butter, vanilla and slight bourbon. Malty and caramelly flavor with butter and a bit of booze at the end.

DrSilverworm (5029) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 13, 2013
10oz (requested a half-size) on tap at Cock & Bull. Good woody whiskeyish vanilla aroma from the barrels, works well in combination with the classic Vanilla Porter vanilla nose. Some toasty malt and chocolate syrup aroma, too. Some smokiness. Medium body. Black color. Thin tan khaki head, little dots of loose lace. Little dark fruit. Sweet taste, though not cloying. Very interesting and tasty stuff.

Draft - pours brown with beige head and thin lacing. Nose is vanilla and cheese. Flavor adds wood and a base maltiness. Not what I expect from a porter but I recall liking the non barrel aged version. The barrel does add to the complexity but I doní think it improves the beer because by calling it barrel aged I expect it to be bolder and stronger, but this is weaker. Mildly sweet with light bitterness. Easy to drink.

Hands down my absolute favorite porter. Pouring this into a glass will make the whole kitchen smell like vanilla. The vanilla taste is perfect and so is the thickness. A must try if you like porters, or vanilla.

Even though it was Oak aged the woody notes were subdued and the Beer seemed smoother than the usual version. very nice drinking at Winking Lizard and I bought the glass.

JPDurden24 (1493) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - AUG 31, 2012
A much stronger version of the vanilla porter in the barrels. The whiskey comes through along with some wood and dark fruits. It is good stuff.

NielsenRatings (8275) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - OCT 25, 2011
Tap @ 471. Brown appearance with a light tan head. Vanilla, mild chocolate malty, delicious Stranahans whiskey aroma. Tasty vanilla, chocolatey flavor return all of the Stranahans deliciousness- vanilla, oak and toffee. Definite upgrade over the normal version.
