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.

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.

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
Overall Impression: 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.

~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.
