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’.

On tap at the Loreeley a biergarten on Rivington St NYC. I enjoyed the weisen meets dark malt that poured an average head. Cloudy body released roasted grain taste. Body was medium and provided a moderate sweet and bitter combo.

Bottle. Labeled best before the end of 10-2007. Poured a dark brown color with an averaged sized off white head. Aromas of chocolate, roast, bananas, and I’m getting some dark fruits. Tastes of chocolate, roast, bananas, and a trace of caramel. Lively body.

OKBeer (1171) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - NOV 11, 2007
500 ml bottle, best before 05-2008. Dark ruby brown colour with a mostly lasting fizzy and rocky tan head. Yeasty, chocolate, citrus, and metallic aroma. Yeasty, light chocolate, and bready flavours with a light banana and metallic finish. Medium bodied, smooth. Pretty simple and not all that flavourful.

Defreni (3006) - Husum, DENMARK - OCT 26, 2007
Flaske. Igen en glædelig overraskelse. Flot mørk øl, med en kant af alkohol jeg normalt ikke opfanger i øl under 8-9 %. Og bestemt ikke forventede her. Dette er ment på en positiv måde. Så thumps up.

Embrouille (2843) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 22, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 4, 2009 Bottled 50cl. It pours a dark brown beer with a nice slightly beige head. Dominating raisins in the nose. Fruity with hints of almonds and a good malty background. Slightly smoky. This beer is nicely balanced. Malty, moderately sweet and with a hint of sourness. Light bodied. Notes of bergamot, soap, raisins, licorice and cereals. Some cloves and garlic?! showing up. Slightly watery. Bready. Malty finish with a hint of plums. Rerate: Mediocre, let’s face it!

Cryotek (206) - Pawtucket, Rhode Island, USA - OCT 9, 2007
Dark, cloudy, nut brown. Flavor stands out and feels smooth, but not gulpable. More of an easy sipping beer. Tastes like chocolate crakers. Not bad, i would try it again, and it is easily my favorite Erdinger.

Beershine (5224) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 8, 2007
UPDATED: MAY 3, 2010 Had at the brewery outlet in Munich, and enjoyed every sip. Tried next to the regular (hellas) weiss bier, and might have liked this one better but I think that is due to mood....re-rate...Cola-colored, opaque with thick tan head. Brassy overtones on top of dry malts. The soft palate carries the flavor well. The chocolatey malts are also bready. The body is pretty thin and light, making it easy to drink. Clocked in at 6-4-6-3-12 and orig rating is 6-4-7-4-13.
