Decent Beer of the Night: Tommyknocker Maple Nut Brown Ale
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 Munich caramel and chocolate malts used in the brewhouse, producing a drinkable dark amber ale with a relatively low alcohol content.
It’s not a Schoune Maple Ale, which I believe had actual pieces of bark in it last time I tried one, but it’s not bad either. Tommyknocker did a decent job of prevent the addition of the syrup from throwing off the balance of the beer. Brown Ales aren’t my favorite type, and this could use a little more kick, but it goes down very easily. Rumor has it that the keg version is a very different brew–I’ll try it if it ever show up at Tyler’s.
