I have just recently discovered TommyKnocker Imperial Nut Brown
Ale. And it has immediatly jumped into my top ten. Bold but smooth. Probably a bit on the sweet side for lots of people, and they might not like the syrupy finish(it’s made with maple syrup after all). But I have gotten tired of the “How many hops can we put in a beer, ignoring all other beer characteristics” pale ale movement.
Quite a fine dark ale, and not too obscure to find . 9.8% though, sheesh, I could get in trouble on this stuff.
