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.
