look: 4.5 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

Brewed on oak with vanilla.

Arrives a deep reddish-brown with a creamy, light tan, well retained head perched atop.
Smell is a well blended mix of malt, vanilla and oak with some light fruit in the back.
Taste is sweet, malt, vanilla and oak exceedingly well balanced.
Body is thinner than expected, just medium with a light effervescence to go with it. Smooth and very drinkable, even sessionable.

Serving type: nitro-tap

On tap at Engine 15.
Surprised to see that the Hornswoggled is a red ale; it came without a description and was very bold for style and certainly seemed to be a hazelnut brown.

Clear dark brown with a semi-durable head; excellent clarity.

Very mild aroma but moderately strong flavor. Dominated by hazelnut.
Mildly bittersweet, with a mildly bitter aftertaste.

Feel: adequate carbonation but overly thin body.

Serving type: on-tap

look: 4.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.25

On tap at the House of Brews. Served in a snifter.

Appearance - Deep amber. Huge creamy nitro head. Beautiful lacing and nice thick wisps.

Smell - Very malty. Caramel and some deep roasted malts. Almost some coffee.

Taste - Super nutty. Caramel. Minimal hoppiness. Again with a strong roasted character.

Mouthfeel - Creamy, as expected. Medium bodied. Slight bitterness in the back.

Overall - Kinda meh. Drinkable, but I doubt I'd want a lot of this.

Serving type: nitro-tap

Pours light amber brown. Super creamycream colored head from the nitro tap. Smells like vanilla beans on top of vanilla ice cream. Straight up cream vanilla with some alcohol bite and a little watered down. Low carbonation, medium light mouthfeel. A strange sweet fonish that does not commingle well with the vanilla.

Serving type: on-tap
