A rich, robust American style brown ale. Brewed using roasted and chocolate malted barley. Four stars in The Great Lakes Beer Guide! Notice the malty aroma, some fruit undertones and the roasty finish. Deep and complex, this beer is great with food.

UPDATED: MAR 2, 2004 Solid dark brown ale with a minimal off-white head and light lacing. Big roasty aroma with hints of chocolate and brown sugar. The flavor is nutty with more hops than expected. The finish is lightly bitter and lingering. Hard to go wrong with this one with a CBC meal.

Roasted aroma, small head. Roasted malt flavor. The nut flavor is mostly in the finish

My plane got delayed in Port Columbus airport but I didnít care because there is a Columbus Brewing Company Pub in there. I was hoping to get their apricot ale, but it is not sent to the airport. I had the Nut Brown instead. It poured out of the tap with a nice, deep color and a lasting tan head. It had a nice, roasty aroma with roasted malt flavor present, but I thought it might actually be a little thin. A very good beer though and if my plane hadnít of left Iíd have had another one.

gee, iím the first to taste this one, the pressureís one, iím suddenly all tongue-tied, i so desparately want to be írightí. yeh, sure. just kidding. our hometown columbus brew pours mahogany brown, pantone 174, and yeah, thereís foam. whatís remarkable is the dark roasted malt aroma, this stuff is practically cajun, practically a rauchbier. a little maduro cigar and maple note, but upon robust guzzle one finds itís quite dry. the nut flavor is of roasted chestnuts, the kind somewhat scorched like you buy on the streets of swiss towns. bitter finish. not for everybody, so more for me.
