Nitro at WOB Orlando. Pours deep reddish-amber with a thick, creamy beige head. Smells like oak, wood chips, vanilla, slight spice, and caramel malt. Tastes like oak, vanilla, caramel, and strong malt. Medium body and low carbonation. Very interesting...

Nitro @ CCB, cheers Joe for the glass. Ambrée, col blanc-cassé. Arôme de vanille laissant un bouquet assez doux et plaisant, rétro moyen de malt pâle, caramel. Palais est doux gardant ce côté vanillé sans être surfait, léger caramel, Vienna? petite rondeur douce sur la fin tout en restant très léger en bouche. Amertume est plus en retrait. Je ne note cependant pas le côté boisé du chêne.

On tap. Deep amber pour with a fairly thick , solid head that sticks around. Somewhat mild, sweet aroma - gingerbread, caramel, vanilla. Taste follows, without the "mild" - big vanilla and caramel up front, some holiday spice to follow, and finishes with a little resin and wood. Typical nitro mouthfeel, thick and silky. Like this one a lot, even though I’m not a big fan of the style.

I could see this being a love-it-or-hate-it beer. The vanilla is too heavy handed for style. A heavier beer would’ve handed it better. Other notes of caramel, grain and oak.

haukur (1623) - Reykjavik, ICELAND - JUN 16, 2014
Red with a firm white guinness head. Vanilla in the aroma. Some sweetness on the tongue, but loads of oak and vanilla. Nice for such a small brew

Almost a medicinal flavor, the vanilla doesn't seem to be working with the red. The white oak barrel is actually pushing the flavor further from where I would want it to be. The body is a bit thin. The color is a rich brownish red, and the carbonation is subtle because it's on the nitro today. Overall, not one of my favorite reds. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aurelius (4939) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Big, piled, tan nitro head on a medium walnut brown beer. Cookie-ish malt aroma - like ginger snaps minus ginger. Or sweet pumpernickel. Milk chocolate , a little roasty acidity. Medium body, chalky mouthfeel. Woody, dilute chocolate aftertaste. Interesting and a curveball for what I was expecting. On tap, Proof Production, on a nice Saturday afternoon with LuckyDog.

I don’t know what to say about this beer. It has a nice cocoa noise. I loved the smooth mouth feel. It almost has a gingerbread taste.

chinchill (3888) - South Carolina, USA - MAR 18, 2014
On tap at Engine 15. Surprised to see that the Hornswoggled is a red ale; it came without a description and was certainly very bold for style. Clear dark brown with a semi-durable head; excellent clarity. Very mild aroma but moderately strong flavor. Dominated by hazelnut/vanilla. Mildly bittersweet, with a mildly bitter aftertaste. Feel: adequate carbonation but overly thin body.

hopscotch (10532) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - FEB 1, 2014
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.
