Good offering from Tommyknocker. The booze hits you more as it warms up. Great mouthful indicative of a brown ale. Would like a little more wood taste and less smoke. Also, the head was a little weak, but it could be my poor pouring skills. Still a good beer from an underrated brewery. Happy 20th Tommyknocker!

Pours a chocolate brown color with copper edges. There was only about a half finger of beige head and it dissipated very quickly. The nose is both bready and woody. The body is substantial but the malt flavor lacks the depth and maturity I'd expect in a beer aged in oak. The finish is dry, but also has a slight alcohol bite that gets in the way.

This offering is quite a mixed bag - I like it, but not enough to consider it excellent.

A - 3.75 - Murky dark brown color with a nice tan head that sticks around.
S - 3.75 - Caramel, toffee, bready, smoke, butterscotch, roasted malt.
T - 3.75 - Definitely getting the oak barrels, smoke, caramel, toffee, roasted malt, toast.
M - 3.75 - Medium mouthfeel. Alc covered. Aftertaste is caramel and toffee.
O - 3.75 - It's not as complex as I'd expect something oak barrel aged to be. I've tasted much more complexity out of browns that aren't barrel aged, so I'm not sure if they just didn't let this sit long enough or what. That said. It's a good beer.

A - Pours a dark burgundy, copper brown color with little to no head retention and incredibly viscous as it sticks to the sides of the glass - nice legs on this beer.

S - Oak, nutty, smoke, medium toffee roast, light alcohol, chocolate.

T - Follows the nose quite closely with smoke and oak, biscuity, some medium roasted caramel/toffee malt, some light chocolate, and a mild to moderate blend of dark chocolate bitterness on the back end to keep the sweetness from overpowering the experience.

M - Medium body, light/gentle carbonation, slightly sticky, a little bit thin on the finishing end but slightly chewy up front.

O - No one flavor dominates and everything blends well across the board. The 10% ABV is pretty well hidden because it is not overpowering or obtrusive in any way. I'm the worst critic for Brown Ales because I can't stand them but this one works nicely.

Maple Nut Brown was pleasing. Oaked Aged Butt Head was even better. Fuse the two concepts together and you get a double brown ale aged with oak. I imagine the malt mouths are all over this. From a 12 ounce bottle, on to the beer:

Not much head forms on the pour, and even so it shrinks to a mere lace. As for the beer, it looks like the color brown was given a crisp via hot lava. Looks muddy even. Moving on. Now it has my interest. I smell smoke, vague spice (what is up with that Hungarian oak?), a little toffee and alcohol too. Well, it smells unique.

I expected big and malty, big and malty. I got big and malty, big and malty. Toasty. A squeeze of alcohol. Augh, that's much too toasty. Too sweet. The flavors aren't very interesting. This is so toasty, I could pour this on bread and toast it. It's very slick on the palate as well, so the flavor is not going to be going away soon. Ok, enough!

No sir, I don't like it.
