3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.

My plane got delayed in Port Columbus airport but I didn’t 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 hadn’t of left I’d have had another one.

gee, i’m the first to taste this one, the pressure’s one, i’m suddenly all tongue-tied, i so desparately want to be ’right’. yeh, sure. just kidding. our hometown columbus brew pours mahogany brown, pantone 174, and yeah, there’s foam. what’s 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 it’s 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.
