COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Tommyknockers were mischievous elves who slipped into mining camps with the Cornish miners in the 1800s. Commemorating the 10th anniversary of Tommyknocker Brewery, this special brew is meticulously crafted with pure maple syrup, the highest quality chocolate and crystal malts and is accented with the finest blend of European and American hops. Imperial Nut Brown Ale is a bigger, bolder version of our wildly popular Maple Nut Brown.

chinchill (1863) - South Carolina, USA - JUL 22, 2013
12oz bottle served in a snifter. Pours dark brown and hazy. Some sediment at the bottom of the bottle was included (intentionally) in the pour. The tiny head soon dies away, leaving little lacing. Sweet and rich aroma with hints of toffee and maple over a solid roasted malt base, with dates and some other dark fruits. A rich, fruity and malty flavor, as the aroma suggests. Hints of raisins, dates and toffee. Good sweet/bitter balance for this flavor profile. Medium body and carbonation. O: Very nice, and rather fruity, maple brown. High ABV is partly hidden. Better with some warming

Lilja (1627) - Malmö, SWEDEN - JUN 29, 2013
Smak och doft av humle, malt, russin, karamell, farinsocker, ekträ med toner av torkad frukt och choklad. Lättdrucken med en sträv och chokladbitter beska. En aning söt men det överlever jag.

At Malmö brygghus. I did not have problems with any strong taste of maple. Felt it rather balanced and nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This is an okay brown, but the nuttiness is overwhelmed by the maple flavor. Slick mouthfeel.

rumproasts (2879) - Grand Rapids, Michigan, USA - JUN 18, 2013
bottle. Light brown with small head. Quite sweet and boozy brown ale. A little too over the top for my taste. Reminiscent of rubbing alcohol.

Ericular (612) - Minnesota, USA - JUN 17, 2013
Pours a dark brown with quickly fading head and not much lacing. Aroma is chocolate malty and slightly fruity. Taste is sweet, syrupy, molasses, some alcohol. Not very balanced, but not obviously high ABV either. This just wasn’t doing it for me.

cthomas2390 (220) - Colorado, USA - JUN 7, 2013
Pours a very dark brown with no head. Minimal aroma: a bit of nuttiness and a hint of sweet alcohols. Rich maltiness is quickly replaced by alcohols and a bit too much hop bitterness which both linger, though they combine with a bit of coffee on the finish. Mouthfeel is thick and creamy with low/medium carbonation.

magsinva (878) - Virginia, USA - JUN 2, 2013
Bottle from Hop City - pours cola with a thin tan head. Aroma is artificial, boozy and alcohol. Got to say the added alcohol is not really helping this one. Disappointing.

12 oz bottle from a mix pack purchased in Estes Park. Brown and pretty clear with a tiny head that dissipates to nothing and leaves no lacing. The aroma is malty and sweet with maple syrup, brown sugar, nuts, caramel, alcohol and chocolate. Similar flavor, sweet, strong and malty. Medium to full body with soft carbonation and a very warming finish. A little over the top, I think the regular version is slightly better.

TheJestersBeer (2059) - SWEDEN - MAY 27, 2013
355ml bottle. Pours a deep mahogany copper, with a thin beige head. Malty aroma, chocolate, butterscotch, licorice, dried fruit. Off-dry, medium to full bodied, mid bitterness, slightly low CO2. Malty, almost cloying taste, fudge, chocolate, butterscotch, earth. Leaves an oily film on the palate, with a lingering, artificial bitterness. Nah. (2013-04-22)
