About This Beer
In Missouri, you better keep your head on a swivel because autumn means black walnuts start raining from the trees!
The adventurous, GABF gold medal-winning brew crew at Perennial decided to take the nutty harvest and put it to good use — in beer! They’ve loaded 250 pounds of the state’s official tree nut into Black Walnut Dunkel.
This smooth sipping brew washes over your palate with toasty, chocolatey malts. The subtle sweetness gives the walnuts a candied quality that folds into caramel and clove notes, rolling them over your taste buds with a tinge of banana esters.
Roasty Malty Smooth Nutty Spicy Bready
just ok. not really Dunkel-y. Just brown and slightly sour.
Tastes like an old walnut. not very strong malty or chocolate notes. 😕 I was looking forward to this beer and im a bit disappointed.
A little disappointed, something is off. Get a yeasty flavor. Somewhat dunkle notes. Walnut is slightly there. Just not happy with the flavor.
awful. Was nothing I was hoping for with this one. Very tart/sour and the walnuts added nothing but a gross almost smokiness to it.
I don't wanna say anything bad but it just wasn't for me. if you really like the walnut and dark notes this is for you. I experimented and found one to pass on.
Not exactly a dunkel: instead, it comes across as a solid - albeit basic - brown ale with a slight sweetness and nutty saltiness/umami provided by the namesake walnut. Also, I found it to have the odd aroma of Goober brand peanut butter. Unique, nonetheless.
