Sweet, nutty nose, maple, brown surgery sweetness that is balanced with slight acidity and nice hoppy backbone. Lighter mouthfeel than one might expect.

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.

On draft at Isaacs. Maybe Isaacs received a batch or something. Mine was very very flat...no carbonation at all. However, I liked the nut, earth, and toasted flavors.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Location: Draft at Blind Tiger, 4/8/13
Aroma: The nose has banana, some sweet malts, brown sugar, earth, and nuts
Appearance: This one pours a brownish-red color with a beige head
Flavor: The flavor is much the same as the nose, it leans sweet, with a lot going on
Palate: This one has a medium body and a pretty decent mouthfeel as well
This was some interesting and nice stuff. I’m glad to have tried it, it is quite unique and worth trying for sure.

Rather enjoyed this one, on tap at Maria’s in Chicago. Very balanced toffee, nut, and generously malted dunkelweizen. Very impressive.

4 oz sample at Waldo Pizza. Pours a dark black. Aroma of black walnuts, caramel, raisin, peat. Flavor is much sweeter than I imagined. Black walnut, raisin, molasses, peat.

~12 oz draft pour at Martin City Brewing Company in Kansas City, Missouri. The pour is dark brown, block with a 1/2 inch tan head. Nice lacing left behind on the glass. The aroma is big on the walnut, along with malt sweetness, some brown sugar and a hint of the Dunkel yeast. The taste is the nose, big on the walnut, the sweetness of brown sugar and malt, and lightly leafy earth soft herbal banana yeast. The palate is light to medium bodied, soft carbonation, and a dry nutty earthy finish. Surprised by how much walnut character this showed. Nice beer.
