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.

750ml bottle. Aroma of roasty, chocolate malt, some fruity, spicy yeast esters, nut (walnut, hazelnut), caramel, dark brown sugar and faint vanilla. Clear deep brown in color, head is fine and lasting. Nutty, roasty, lightly sweet malt dominates, with more brown sugar, hazelnut, toffee, bread, and more peppery, spicy yeast showing up at the finish, along with a certain tanginess in the background. Smooth mouthfeel and low in effervescence, body is medium-full. Very nicely balanced and tasty.

April 17, 2013 - tap at Soha. Muddy brown pour with nice head that lasted and lacing. Aroma was malt, banana, clove and nutty. Taste was consistent with aroma and had a nice nutty finish.

ROGUE (2085) - Newark, Delaware, USA - APR 16, 2013
On tap at Bainbridge Street Barrel House in Philly. Pours a dark brown with three fingers of light tan head that recedes into a dense cap with no lacing. Big aromas of chocolate, cocoa powder, nuts, and sweet malt. The flavor is also a bit sweet at first, with flavors of dates, bubblegum, and some dark fruits. Some nutty and roasty flavors follow by some biscuity breadiness. A mild hop profile sneaks in athe the end to balance things somewhat. The feel is on the lighter side of medium bodied with a nice amount of carbonation.

j12601 (6584) - Poughkeepsie, New York, USA - APR 13, 2013
On tap at TÝrst with Max, Ramy, GT & Whitney, Andy, Pearl, James, J-Dad, blipp and Ashley. Pours a lightly hazed amber brown with a thin white head. Smells of sticky old bananas. Chewy malt and even more bananas. What is this, a banana bread with walnuts? Is that why itís called black walnut? Bananas! More bananas, chewy old banana bread that has dried out while sitting on the table waiting for someone to eat it. I guess itís drinkable, but Iím glad I borrowed this glass from blipp and didnít have to drink it by myself.

This one poured a medium brown color with a beige head. Aroma was light nuts, light roast and grassy hops. Falvor was similar, somewhat bitter, but not seemingly from the hops, Ok but not too great.

Poured a hazy brown. Nice carbonation. Smell of malt and yeast , wheat and roasted nuts Flavor was malt with a nutty after taste, slight tartness with a porter body. Very nice style, refreshing while having depth

podey (637) - New York, New York, USA - APR 7, 2013
Draft at Torst. Pours opaque brownish black with thin tan head. Aroma is some sort of nuttiness, hard to place. Taste is slightly walnut, slightly bitter and earthy. Finish is weirdly bitter and lingers. Have to say I was looking forward to this and was fairly disappointed. The flavor profile didnít work for me and the finish lingered bitterly.

Pours a murky light brown with little head and no lacing. Aroma of banana bread with figs and dates and over ripe fruit. Sweet taste of sorghum with nutty flavor and a bit of tartness. Earthy. Thin mouthfeel and watery body. ---Jeremy H

2013 bomber to a snifter. Pours a hazy amber brown with a little tan head. Aroma is a funky sorghum smell, a little sweet and a little earthy. Taste is sweet like the sorghum smell, some malt. The walnut taste is definitely there and contributes to the earthiness. Some fig or raisin with banana bread. Thin, wet mouthfeel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
