Boom! Highly recommended nutbrown. Malty. Nutty. Smooth. It is exactly what I was looking for. Thank you BBC.
PS - Only a 4.9...but worth the wait

The aroma was nutty and VERY pleasant. The light brown body supported a thick, tan head. The flavor was an exciting cacophany of nutty goodness.

Excellent beer. A little sweet with a slight nutty flavor. Tastes like the nut brown version of fat tire.

Hazy brown color with a big tan head. Aroma is very malty with nuts. Really smooth. Flavor of malt, nuts and a little toffee/chocolate.

I enjoy this nut brown. The beer is very flavorful and bold. It is easy to drink, but comes off as fresh and alive.

I had a brown ale from this brewery at their pub in the Cincinnati airport on May 21, so I think the seasonal thing is inaccurate, or maybe the airport had a keg left over. Anyway, this is a nice dark brown ale, malty but with a good solid bitterness in the aftertaste. Head retention is nice.

UPDATED: APR 13, 2004 Rerate 04/01/2004: Tried a glass of this at the BBC in the Cincinnati airport. This was a lot better than the last time I tried it. This was their current seasonal selection. Clear dark brown with a medium thick beige head. Thin lacing. The aroma is very nutty, along with a touch of malt. Nicely smooth with a roasty and nutty character. Malt and hops are also present in the flavor. The finish is crisp and nutty. Overall my experience with the beer this time around was much more favorable.
11/12/2002 (3.0): Tasted at the Barrelhouse Brewing Company Microbrew Fest on November 9. This was just called "Nut Brown Ale", so maybe they brew it every year on their anniversary. Dark brown with a thin head. For some reason I got impressions of bubblegum in the flavor along with the malt. It also had a slightly sour finish. This was an odd beer.

cask conditioned: Mahogany in color. Fat, light hazel foam. Prevalent leathery house character in the aroma with notes of toffee, plummy malt, rye, and bushy hops. Hints of roast. Fluffy carbonation. Tea-like softness. Complexly flavored with tangy leather and stewed plum notes. Continually soft and fruity with coconut and mango suggestions. Scratchy yeast and grainy malt textures buoy the earthy hop astringency with hints of fruitcake and acidity. Juicy malt structure hints at toasted, lightly husky malt. Pulverized malt notes are enlivened by gentle tropical fruit acidity and rich caramel. Understatedly nutty malt finish underlined with a delicate sweep of coarse hops. Needs more malt emphasis in both aroma and flavor. Excellent session brew, though.
