Black Walnut Dunkel is our first foray into German-style beer. Originally brewed for an underground beer dinner with our friends at entre, BWD is a rich, malty Dunkelweiss with 250 pounds of Missouri black walnuts. Game birds, such as quail, pair nicely with the unique, earthy character of the walnuts.

Tasted in July 2013 from a capped 750mL bottle that Adam and I picked up during a baseball trip in St. Louis. Pours clear cola brown with an average tan head that leaves fizzy, average lace. The nose is burnt caramel malt with a light candied walnut aroma. The flavor is a bit lighter, more nuts, with just a touch of spice and some toasted cocoa nib malt. The body is light and fizzy with a long caramel and candied nut finish.

There was just something soo real and earthy about this beer that i absolutly loved. Walnut is the pefect nut to compliment and it appears you just need to put a lot of it in to really pull out the goodness.

Bottle... Poured dark brown with a big, light tan head. Probably past its prime here. Lots of attenuation and sweet, fruity, esters and yeast presence. Dark fruits with a hint of walnut. Not my favorite from these guys but still unique, drinkable offering.

Bottle at home for Pats Thursday night game. Pours dark with big three finger head that slowly dissipates. Nose is red berry and dark fruits as well as malt. Tastes of walnut for sure, some cran raspberry, Asian plum sauce, malty, tobacco, and wheat. Nice lively and smooth palate. Leather palate in very nice way.

Rustyham (1778) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - AUG 25, 2014
Sweet, murky, robust, tart. Blueberries and Belgian quad with a refreshing palate of a dunkel. Tastes old and aged, complex, but also sweet and crisp.

hopscotch (9891) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - AUG 5, 2014
Bottle... Pours murky and brown with a small, frothy, khaki head. Decent retention. The bouquet is a malty swirl of caramel, toasted nuts and milk chocolate. Medium to full-bodied with fizzy carbonation. The flavor is nutty and a hint chocolaty with a mild component of awkward, lactic acidity. Finishes tangy and sweet. Infected? Bottle supplied by biggsbowler!

750ml bottle in a teku. Pours very dark brown with a beige head. Aroma of chocolate/darker malts, some light notes of wheat and walnuts, some caramel and toffee notes, and light dough. Flavor doesn’t blend perfectly. Average texture. A pretty good beer.
