part of their prospector series, i think its rad they put this innovative and delicious beer in a can too! its an imperial version of their nut brown, run through some sort of technology that i didnt quite understand, but it apparently increases surface area exposure to an added element, in this case whiskey barrel char, thus reducing the need for longer contact time and also supposedly increasing the intensity and forwardness of the flavor. i would like to know more about this technology and how it works and what its full potential is, but for now i just let the results speak for themselves. there is a ton of char and whiskey on this, high vanilla, a maple note, rich cocoa malt, plenty of alcohol and residual sugar, definitely a big progression from the original nut brown, but a beer that i think is quite distinctive, intensely barrel aged tasting and smelling to me, with the whiskey as forward as the beer and the wood right there with it. its not overly complex, at least in that these flavors are familiar to me in this way, but it doesnt really need to be, and this drinks rich and slow and fancy. interesting process that id like to learn more about and see used again in a different beer. this was a treat, a high point of recent tommyknocker beer. definitely get into it if you have the chance!
