Poured a medium amber with a tight head. Gentle aromas of oak and malt.
Medium bodied and carbonation is spot on.
The note of vanilla and wood harkens the flavor of bourbon without being a bourbon aged ale. Extremely good use of malts, gentle toast flavors enveloped by luscious vanilla that finishes off with a hint of citrus and earth. Sweet but not cloying. Reminds me a bit of Anderson Valley's line of ales.
Smooth and slightly on the creamy side, this is one delicious session ale.

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.

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.

First had: on nitro at Cigar City, Tampa, FL
Burnt orange color, deep but translucent, with a small, dense, beige head that lasted well and left some streaks of lacing on the glass. Sweet aroma, caramel, toffee, vanilla, light indistinct fruit. Really liked this one a lot. Taste reflected the nose, pretty sweet, caramel, toffee, butterscotch, a good dose of vanilla, which lent a flavor and smoothness reminiscent of a big, bourbon-aged beer, only without any trace of bourbon. Light notes of citrus zest and leafy hops, but the beer was mostly dominated by malt/vanilla sweetness. Medium body, smooth, creamy, tantalizing. Not for everyone perhaps, but definitely left me wanting more.
