Dunkelweizen is my favorite style. Black Walnut Dunkel has an incredibly intense sourness blended with a fruity sweetness and rich maltiness that makes this beer absolutely unique. The best way I could describe it is as a triple dunkelweizen. This beer proves that US craft brewers can create original, superior beers,

Draft at Capone’s. Pours an opaque medium brown with some head that fades. nose is mild banana and plantains with yeast notes. firs sip is similar with a mild acetic and napthelene. finish is clean and rather nice.it would be better without the napthelene.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle. Strong black walnut, banana, and wheat malt aroma. Cloudy brown with giant light tan head. Bittersweet black walnut, banana, and wheat malt flavor - can’t really get anything else - the black walnut dominates. A well made beer, but black walnut is such a dominant flavor that it overwhelms much of the subtler weizen characteristics.

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.

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.

2.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
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?
