TommyKnocker Brewery “Maple Nut Brown Ale”

25 Oct

The Pitch:

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 chocolate malts used in the brewhouse, producing a drinkable dark amber ale with a relatively low alcohol content.

The Skinny:

TommyKnocker “Maple Nut Brown Ale” starts out a little on the watery side, but in the end the sweet maple, nutty flavor pulls through to finish this one off very nicely!  The real maple syrup makes this beer sweet and the hint off hops may not be enough to kill the sweetness enough for some to enjoy.  The chocolatey coffee malt notes with perfect carbonation adds to an all around pleasurable experience.  The Maple Nut Brown Ale gets a sweet 3 out of 4 Knuckles.
