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. ryanfolty (2604) - Bourbon County, Minnesota, USA - APR 17, 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.

On tap at Tørst 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 it’s 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 it’s drinkable, but I’m glad I borrowed this glass from blipp and didn’t have to drink it by myself. Beerman6686 (6611) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 10, 2013
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. Godofthecellar (678) - NYC, New York, USA - APR 7, 2013
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 (638) - 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 didn’t work for me and the finish lingered bitterly. jeremyh70 (1115) - Missouri, USA - APR 6, 2013
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.
