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.

BrewCzar (108) - St Louis, Missouri, USA - FEB 14, 2009
Bottle pours a dark brown color with beige head. Aroma is sweet and fruity.Taste is malty, sugary sweet, a hint of tartness from raisins, and some maple. Does lack the expected nuttiness. None of the flavors are very bold. palate is about average for a brown. Alcohol is well hidden.

Moebbels (613) - FINLAND - DEC 2, 2015
A clear brown body with a voluptous light brown head that leaves loads of lacing on the glass. Sweet nose with nutty, caramelly and creamy notes. Taste is sweet with some liquorice and a mildly roasty finish and a lingering bitterness. Soft carbonation and moderately ample palate and some warmth. Thos is quite pleasant and drinkable.

corby112 (2804) - 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.

pressboxjoe (332) - , New Jersey, USA - SEP 9, 2015
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.

Draft at the brewpub. Pours murky copper brown with a fizzy beige head. Tastes like sweet nutty malt, boozy, light earth and chocolate. Light/medium and carbonation. Smells like nutty malt, booze, chocolate, and sweet syrup.

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.
