Tommyknocker "Imperial Nut Brown Ale"
Tommyknocker Brewery - Idaho Springs, Colorado USA
Imperial Brown Ale (ABV 9%) (IBU 57)

[Suggested Glassware: Dimpled Mug]

Rating: 3.4/5.0

Aroma: 7/10
Appearance: 3/5
Taste: 7/10
Palate: 3/5
Overall: 14/20

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...
