While watching the Boxing Marathon on ESPN classic and having the Manic Street Preachers on the Hi-Fi . Thought it was time to enjoy a brew . A 22oz bottle wrapped in gold foil around the cap & neck . Large scroll label which has a nice singe on the side . The back label tells me that the Tommyknockers were mischievous elves who slipped into the minning camp of Cornish miners . Maple syrup ? Wonder if it is the good stuff . The syrup you get when you go up north to NH , VT , to hit the ski slopes . Just like good beer nothing beats real maple syrup . There is no freshness date on the bottle . Remove the foil wrap to find a bearded miner on the cap with a hard hat , a mug ( of Tommyknocker Imperial Nut Brown no doubt ) in his left and a pickaxe in his right . When poured into a pint glass , a dark brown clear liquid with a nice head . I smell the syrup and some sugar too . Where are my waffles ? The head did not last long . My first taste was very smooth . Maple flavor and some cocoa . It is tasty and at 9.8 % ABV you don't feel the " heat " on my cheeks 9 well not right away , anyway ) I did enjoy this while Riddick Bowe vs. Evander Holyfield III . I would try it again . A pleasant brew . My first nut brown ever & will not be my last .

Ruby brown in color with good light tan head, good lacing, and a thick collar. Aroma is dark molasses, nutty and earthy. Taste follows pretty much identically. Mild hop bitterness in this one. Medium-light body and medium carbonation. Definitely my favorite of the three beers I had at the brewery.
Serving type: on-tap
