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.

Reddish brown with a moderate head, decent lacing and retention. Aroma is nuts, caramel, more sweet malts. Sweet finish with a watery mouthfeel. Enjoyable.

BrettTaylor (624) - Radford, Virginia, USA - APR 7, 2015
Poured from bottle into glass. Pours a medium brown with a khaki 1 finger head. Aroma - maple, roasted almond. Taste - dark chocolate, maple, light hop bitterness, finish of dark roasted malt (medium coffee like). Better than the non-imperial version in my opinion.

Deep ruby color, small beige head. Malty, nutty, a bit tart aroma. Medium-bodied. Malty, nutty, caramel and also some kind of tart vibe. I don’t like so much. Maybe keg has past its prime.

(Keg at Tommyknocker, Helsinki, 20150403) The beer poured dark reddish brown and clear. Its head was medium sized and white. Aroma had malts, wood and mildly molasses. Palate was medium bodied with medium carbonation. Flavours were malts, molasses, sweetness, grass, wood and bitterness. Aftertaste was malty, woody and bitter. A nice malty ale. Alcohol was well hidden.

kramer (5328) - Sunbury, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 30, 2015
Bottle. Pours a clear dark brown body under a small short-lived fizzy beige had. The nose is super nutty and sweet, it smells like desert in a glass. Lots of hazelnut, maple, milk chocolate, caramel, minimal hops. The flavor is rather sweet as well with nutty and chocolate malts, a fairly prominent maple note, and a lingering slightly husky caramel note. Medium bodied with a slight cling and fizzy carbonation. Meh, decent enough for a single, but I think the sweetness would get a bit much with more than one.
