ATLBeerDog (280) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAY 10, 2008
Pours a beautiful rust color that is extremely clear – not much head with average lacing and below average carbonation. The dominate smell is rich malts. First taste is light, sweet, with a not much body at all. It is followed by a light bitterness.

hopscotch (8540) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - APR 19, 2008
Growler... Cloudy amber ale with an orange hue and a small, creamy, white head. Toffee notes fill my nose at first, then toasted nuts and milk chocolate. Medium-bodied with fizzy carbonation. Well-balanced flavor. Lengthy, sweet, malty finish. Very drinkable! A big THANK YOU to DragonStout for sharing this Scottish ale with me!

BeerVirgin72 (880) - Pickerington, Ohio, USA - APR 3, 2008
Poured from bottle. Very nice clear dark ruby color. Sweet smell of brown sugar and malts. Flavor was roasted nuts, caramel, and actually a bit less sweet then I was expecting and a bit bitter on the end.

kyzr (1143) - Belgrade, Montana, USA - FEB 11, 2008
Bottle thanks to ogglethorp. Pours a clear dark brown with small brown head. Nice toasted malty aroma. Flavor is somewhat roasted up front of coffee with a nice hinst of caramel. Medium body with just a touch of smoke. Very nice balance of flavors.

DrHomolka (761) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JAN 25, 2008
Bottle. Pours light ruby with a tiny off-white head that very quickly recedes. Aroma is malty, toffee, nutty, maybe a very slight coffee component and a bit of subdued roast. Nice balanced aroma, not too sweet. Smooth, smoky flavor with lot of malts and caramel flavor. A noticeable grape flavor - odd. After tasting the grape flavor it kind of overtakes everything and that’s all I can think of, it even comes through in the smell now. Medium bodied. This has good flavor though it is nice and drinkable. Pretty good example of the style in my opinion.

TomDecapolis (4394) - Lawrence, Kansas, USA - JAN 22, 2008
Thanks to hopdog for sharing this one. Pours a golden amber with a smaller off white head. Aroma was earthy, kind of roasty with some toffee notes and a touch of smoke. Flavors of caramel, a touch of roasted malt, nuts and maybe some smoke.

Slow and Heavy, just like the Buckeyes but what else do you expect from Columbus
