COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A delicate amount of Maple syrup is added to each barrel of our award winning Maple Nut Brown Ale to impart roasted sweetness. This addition balances the nut flavor produced by Munich caramel and chocolate malts used in the brewhouse, producing a drinkable dark amber ale with a relatively low alcohol content. 2000 World Beer Cup Gold Medal & 1996 Great American Beer Festival Bronze Medal Winner

Twelve ounce bottle from Beer Of The (Every Other) Month Club, tasted on April 20, 2013. Medium brown/amber hue, medium tan head, nice sweet malty nose with definite maple syrup notes, good sweet flavor much like the aroma. Can’t understand the overall low ratings--maybe it’s because Tommyknocker isn’t "cool", like 3 Floyds or Stone. To those who run this brewery: better start going to the right parties and kissing the right asses

bottle. Brown with small head. Malty with caramel and nut. Moderate maple. What you’d expect from the name of the beer. Flavors go together well. Unexciting though.

My first beer! I tried this as a young-un, and I fell in love with the flavor instantly. I think anyone interested in a good first-time craft beer should check this out.

BOSSbrewer (1309) - Arkansas, USA - MAR 16, 2014
Pours a ruby brown with one finger of tan head. Aroma is malty and sweet. Nutty. Flavor is sweet with some maple. Flat on flavor. Bland. Finishes slightly sweet.

Onionkid (359) - Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA - MAR 3, 2014
Bottle. Aroma of slight malt and nuts. Taste is similar. Decent body, pretty solid but nothing special overall. Surprisingly weak. 4.5% alcohol.

HIGHB4LL (269) - Fort Collins, Colorado, USA - FEB 22, 2014
On tap at Steakout Saloon. Appearance: kahaki head, finger of head, amber brown, clear. Aroma: maple syrup, toast, chocolate, candied bacon, light smoke. Palate: medium to full body, average carbonation, creamy texture. Taste: cloying malty sweetness. Overall, not balanced at all and not enjoyable. Dislike

Horrible beer. Not sure what went wrong here but I guess it is Tommy knocker and I haven’t had anything really good from them.

Patrickctenchi (3093) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - DEC 28, 2013
Bottle: Hazy brown with red highlights...short, off-white head. Maple syrup and nut aroma. Sweet, smooth nutty flavor with maple hints. Rich, sweet. Not overtly maple, but a good, solid brown ale.... Tasty.

Dark Dirty Brown, Medium Small Head That Does Not Last, Spotty Lacing. Mellow Maple, Toasted Malt Aroma. Maple, Toasted Malt, Caramel, Sugary Sweet. Slightly Higher Carbonation Than I Like. Pretty Good. Worth A Try...
