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.

KajII (800) - Macon, North Carolina, USA - DEC 3, 2012
12oz Bottle. The pour was a clear dark chestnut brown with an average (1-2 finger) light brown rocky head that mostly lasted throughout, reducing slowly down to a med cap with fair streaky lacing. The aroma was of a toasted biscuit malt, light resin hops and an earthy yeast with notes of molasses, coffee, maple syrup, a very light hint of chocolate and a moderate alcohol presence. The taste was malty sweet with a hint of molasses and a pinch of chocolate early on, progressing into a nice bitter sweet mildly roasty taste with a notes of coffee, maple syrup and a boozy alcohol ending. The flavor stuck around for a good long while after the swallow, with a nice roastiness and a strong boozy finish. Mouthfeel was almost medium in body and dry in texture with a somewhat mild carbonation. Overall this was a delicious brew with a malty sweetness that kind of compensated for the bold boozy presence. Yep, this one kind of makes you feel warm all over...

.33l bottle from Alko JKL keskusta. Pours deep clear brown with medium head. Aroma is dark malts, caramel, dark fruits, nuts, bread, syrup notes. Flavor is mostly same but a bit flat compared to aroma. Still well balanced and nice thick beer.

From notes. Bottle at home from Alko. Pours dark amber colour with creamy head. Flavor is malty, nutty, caramelly and sugary. Quite light body with warm alcohol taste. A bit bittery to balance it. Peculiar beer.

RexTalionis (3422) - FINLAND - APR 29, 2016
Bottle. Looks brown. Brown sugary sweetness and mild vinous notes in aroma. Some dry bitterness. Nutty and sweet notes in taste. Quite good drinkability considering the quite high abv. Sweet brown sugary notes and slightly boozy finish though.

Pähkinävoita. Aromi on hyvä. Aika makea ja vähintä puoliteennäinen. Ei tätä kauaa jaksa.

imdownthepub (12664) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2016
Bottled, 355ml aged 5.5yrs from Bellingers Garage, Grove, Oxon. Dark brown with cream head. This is sweet, malty from the off, quite fruity, peachy with a port wine background. The ageing has amalgamated the flavours nicely. Rich on the palate. Pretty reasonable.

Moebbels (661) - 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.
