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.

cblado (298) - Washington, USA - FEB 2, 2009
12 oz bottle. Poured a cloudy amber color, good lacing. Aroma was maple, brown sugar, caramel malt. Flavor was very malty up front, some molasses and maple notes, abrupt finish. Less maple than I expected. Palate was a bit thin, not too bad though. Overall very drinkable.

corby112 (2722) - philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - NOV 11, 2015
Pours a cloudy, dark chestnut brown color with a half finger beige head that quickly fades into a thin, lasting ring. Minimal spotty lacing. Slightly earthy aroma with grassy hops and a decent balance of roasted and sweet malt notes. Floral hops up front followed by hints of toast, chocolate, caramel and toffee. Medium bodied and surprisingly hop forward for the style. Some dry bitterness complimented by a complex malt bill and maple sweetness. A bit more roast than expected but nit overly dry or acrid with hints of coffee and toast. This is cut by the maple sweetness as well as some subtle spice, caramel, toffee and hazelnut. Decently balanced and the high ABV is well masked, but there’s an odd lingering aftertaste that hurts drinkability. Not bad but I don’t think I would go for this one again.

Bottle from Wegman’s. Cloudy, syrupy knockout of a beer, malty like a barleywine, hits like a sledgehammer for whatever reason. Tastes a little like it’s been around awhile, but could also be this beer’s intended flavor. Enjoyed it more first time I had it, 3-4 years ago, so maybe I did get an old batch.

Tap @ Tommyknocker, Helsinki. Pours a reddish brown with a small, yellowish brown head. Aroma is caramel, some citrus, some earthiness, some nuttiness. Some maple. Taste is quite sweet, following along the same lines. Less hoppiness. Too light in the mouth.

BrettTaylor (669) - 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.
