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.

Beautiful pour. Tasty beer (the maple adds a little sweetness to it), but a sour aftertaste takes a lot away from this brew. Drinkable, but nothing special.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - AUG 25, 2005
Pours dark brown, near black. Fully receding tan head. Aroma of alcohol, cola, caramel, and maple. Beers like this make me realize why I don’t like sugar adjuncts in non-Belgian styles. Taste is a bit spicy and sweet with the alcohol present but not overwhelming. Body is heavy, meant for slow sipping. This was hard to finish, not great. Lacking refinement.

Aroma of maple syrup, buckwheat pancakes, toasted peanuts, carmel chews, roasted malts. nice dark creamy brown color with excellent tan head. alcohol comes through on the flavor lots. nutter butter taste to it, sort of creamy with a feel of hazelnut and Bailey’s. pretty legit and the only one i have seen of the style. kick ass

This is one damn interesting beer. Poured out a very brown color with very little head. Had a huge maple syrup aroma filled with alcohol and some roasted nuts. The body had a dr pepper vibe and a maple syrup vibe and a spiced rum flavor. It blended well and carried a big sac with its 10 percent. Nice and interesting brew i must say.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 18, 2005
Deep brown-ruby hue that looks near black out of direct light. Average sized, tan, creamy head. Walnuts (with shells), caramel, maple syrup, oak, mowed under wet herbs, vinous, and a little bit of alcohol. Farily sweet throughout with a mix of soft balancing acidity and bitterness. A hint of vanilla and prunes in the flavor. Medium-full body, oily texture, moderate carbonation.

jgentgesdo (679) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 14, 2005
Pours brown with slightly soapy nose that has some malt notes and definitely maple syrup. The flavor is initially what you expect from a mild, strong ale, with good malts up front, very little hops character. Lots of maple syrup noted towards the end. Aftertaste is maple syrup and caramel. Very good.

aracauna (3179) - Georgia, USA - AUG 14, 2005
Dark, dark ruby brown with a fleeting, but frothy head. The aroma is malty up front with a touch of whisky malt/alcohol in the back. The flavor is better than the aroma suggests with a fuller malt, a touch of cola and walnuts.

TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - AUG 9, 2005
Pours a deep brown to black with a nice off white head. The aroma is a mixture of chocolate and spicy hops. The flavor is a well balaced blend of sweet maltiness and bold hoppiness. Very drinkable and complex.

I thought this was very nice. Poured a very dark brown (very similar in appearance to a Newcastle only darker). The aroma had hazelnuts, toasted malts, and a creamy feel. Clean creamy body with flavors of nutty, creamy toasted malts, and marshmallow. Creamy and enjoyable. Nice Job!

UPDATED: MAR 8, 2009 Bottled Nov 2004. This beer pours a murky dark brown, little to no head. Aroma is of mainly pineapple. Seriously, it smells like pineapple juice with some malts backing it up. Flavor is about the same with pineapple dominating everything. Otherwise it is a bit boring and lacking much character. It gets a bit harsh and cloyingly sweet as it warms. I certainly wouldn’t want to drink a whole 22oz. I looked for someone else to mention pineapple, but I guess me and my friends are alone on that observation.
