Cigar City Hornswoggled poured with nitro is a good UK style. Pour has a thick tight head given the nitro pour and a fresh malty aroma. Dark color. Taste is light chocolate with even dryer cherriy and a dry finish. Cigar City Hornswoggled is a great take on an Irish style ale.

Hunahpus day. This stuff is awesome. Light red pour with a creamy head. Aroma was woody with soft notes of vanilla and fruity hops. Nice vanilla presence, some wood and a good bit of hops from top to bottom. The nitro really kicks this up a notch. So soft and drinkable with nicely developed flavors. Among all the madness this was a nice find.

Nice and creamy feel with excellent notes of vanilla, sweet malt, not particularly hoppy, oak comes through mostly in the vanilla flavor more than in any really "woody" flavors. Great stuff, another awesome CCB session beer.

Draft at the Sybarite Pig on nitro. Pint glass. Pours a beautiful deep reddish-amber with a perfect velvety one finger eggshell head. Aroma was wonderful with oak, wood chips, vanilla, slight spice, and malty caramels. The taste was similar with a very solid oak flavor, vanilla, creamsickle, caramel, and heavy malts. Mild carbonation, medium to full body, and a great wood aftertaste. Very very solid beer. Thanks CCB!

UPDATED: MAY 13, 2014 Nitro... This beer rocks!... Pours clear and copper with a large, creamy, white head that lasts until I’ve emptied the glass. The aroma is reminiscent of cream soda that is vanilla-heavy with a toasted oak bonus. Medium to full-bodied and super creamy with pillow-soft carbonation. Big malt flavor, but not at all cloying. Modest vanilla and caramel sweetness. Finishes off nourishing and bittersweet. Well executed world class beer!. If diggin’ malt-forward beers is wrong, I don’t wanna be right.

On nitro at CCB, poured an amber orange color with aromas of cream, oak, vanilla, and malt. Flavors are the same, light and creamy on the palate, nice irish red ale on nitro

Nitro at CCB. Pours a moderate amber color with a nice off white head. Aroma is of caramel, oak, vanilla, toffee and some light grainy notes. Taste is complex, nice smooth mouthfeel typical of nitro pours, oak, vanilla, smooth creamy caramel, toffee, light grainy notes. Tasty beer that tastes a lot bigger than 5%, but in a good way.

Nitro tap; pours a clear copper with fluffy tan head that leaves good lacing. Aroma of smoky oak and whiskey, taste follows with a nice underlying amber and caramel malt. Smooth and creamy from the nitro, probably the best red I have ever had.
