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.

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.

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.

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.
