COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

BWD is rich, complex and fruity. I really like the flavor and a touch of bitterness from the walnuts, but there is a bit more sweetness than I would like.

pours dark brown with a thick offwhite head. aroma of brown sugar, nuts, chocolate and honey. Taste follows, true to the style yet with a lot more flavor. very interesting.

some fruity esters, banana. some sweetness in the nose. dark brown color. really complex flavors -- earthy. knowing it has walnuts in it makes me think that i’m tasting them, but very subtle. unique, interesting beer.

Bottle at home. Pours clear brown with a small, creamy beige head, long retention with spare lacing. Aroma is lightly acetic grapes and raisins, cookie, toast, and caramel malt, black walnuts and earthy hops. Flavor is sour dark fruits, acetic, moderate sweet malt, light hops and bitterness with a dry finish. Medium body and carbonation. This is not a bad beer, but it is also not a Dunkelweizen, as advertised - possibly infected bottle?

UPDATED: FEB 23, 2014 26.06.2013, tap @ The Pony Bar NY:
Nice creamy longlasting head. Aroma is kind of strange fruity, caramel, nuts, yeast, chocolate, dough, toast, very ripe banana, coffee, grass. Taste is slightly roasted, dark malts, toast, burnt caramel, grass, very ripe banana, chocolate, roasted nuts, oak, wet hay, coffee. Medium bitterness, slightly dry mouthfeel. Very strange dunkel weizen, but it’s also kind of interesting.

Sweet, nutty nose, maple, brown surgery sweetness that is balanced with slight acidity and nice hoppy backbone. Lighter mouthfeel than one might expect. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

A hazed brown dunkel with a thin mocha head. In aroma, sweet nutty fruity malt with scotch barrel, walnut, dark fruits. In mouth, a sweet fruity banana with nutty notes, light solvent, alcohol warmth, ok.

I had this beer at Isaac Newton’sto kick off Philly Beer Week. I LOVE Dunkel, but this beer did not do it for me. Perhaps it was due to the fact that I had just had Fantastic Voyage Coconut Porter? Not sure. Either way, it did not taste like a Dunkel to me

Refrigerated 75 cl brown bottle poured into a weizen glass. Pours translucent chestnut brown with big fluffy beige head. Some lacing, light body, medium carbonation, and tart aroma. Taste is estery banana, rich tart, some black walnuts, and a hint of earthyness which peaks out from time to time. This is good, original, and may be the best dunkleweizen I have had.

My only previous "nut" beers have been the nut brown ales. Not a fan at all. This one was suprisingly decent. Nice sweet and tart finish. Slightly nutty and malty dunkel flavor. By no means a favorite but enjoyable.
