COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle conditioned.
Ingredients: Water; wheat malt; barley malt; roasted malt; hops; yeast.
Name changed from Erdinger Weissbier Dunkel to Erdinger Dunkel, and abv changed from 5.6% to 5.3% by 2012.
A wheat beer from the good old days.
Erdinger Weissbier ’dark’ is a rich and smooth wheat beer specialty from Erdinger Weissbräu. It owes its full-bodied flavor to the fine hops and dark malt used in its production.
The dark beer specialty is brewed according to an age-old recipe. Its spicy flavor also results from the increased proportion (about 13%) of original wort. Nonetheless, at 5.3%, it doesn’t contain much more alcohol than Erdinger Weissbier ’with fine yeast’.

burgerlicious (308) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 30, 2005
Dark body, minimal head. Nice sweet roasted aroma that carries over in the flavor, but not very well.

BeerRules (243) - Houston, Texas, USA - JUL 26, 2005
The smell of this beer reminds me of cookie dough, bad ass. Big ass light tan head on a dark ruby black body. Tastes quite lame I think. In fact, all I really get is a toasty grain taste with a little bit of spice and yeast. It’s definitely not offensive or anything, just well, lame. Overall its not bad, but I have had better wheat beers.

Looks and smells great, but that’s about it. There is just absolutely nothing in the flavoring at all, not sweet, not anyghing. It doesn’t even really seem like I’m drinking a beer, just dark something. This score is skewed because of the two more useless aspects of the rating system.

turbo (1271) - Arizona, USA - JUL 19, 2005
Bottle poured black with a nice light malt and roasty aroma. Flavor is a bit watery but easy drinking, light roast, caramel and malt.

Aarleks (409) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 18, 2005
Bottle: Very dark red-brown to black with a latte head. Slightly roasty wheat and phenolic clove aromas with some sweet, juicy malts and tart lemon notes. Spicy and roasty flavours with some citric acidity, finishing with a dry floral roastyness and some lingering caramel. Slightly watery but still quite nice.

jonsiii (165) - Fredericia, DENMARK - JUL 11, 2005
Bottle. Not much aroma, but nice dark colour and long lasting head. Sweet malty taste and good carbonation. Nice pricetag south of the danish border, so i’ll get some more of these.

NYHarvey (2153) - New York, New York, USA - JUL 9, 2005
Malty mildly sweet aroma. Dark brown with a good sized fluffy head. Sweet and watery and suprinsingly un-wheat beer like. Tastes a little like a watery bock. Noclove or bannana flavors.

skortila (4463) - Baarn, NETHERLANDS - JUL 5, 2005
Nose of mainly wheats and some banana. Quite weak. Cloudy, brown coloured with a lasting, thin, off-white head. Taste is sweet, wheaty, some banana in it, slightly smoked (which is a nice addition). Body is a bit too thin. Overal an okay, refreshing dunkelweizen .
