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’.

This stuff has to be poured into the right glass to get the right head and taste. It’s a lot of work for not much result. Aroma is all malt, cola like. Smooth thoughand although only 5.6%, you get a alcohol bite.

lovelacm (48) - Niceville, Florida, USA - APR 15, 2006
0.5L Bottle Served in proper Erdinger Glassware - Large creamy off-white head atop a dark chocolatey brown body. Not much aroma, but some maltiness and possibly a little coffee. Medium body with some coffee, caramel, and grain tones with a slight initial sweetness that slowly turns a little bitter/dry for the finish. No long-lasting aftertaste. Quite enjoyable.

Dorqui (2125) - Brescia, ITALY - APR 9, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 16, 2007 Bottled 0,50L. Much bulky and creamy head, optimal adhesion and duration. Much dark brown color, nearly black one. Optimal fizz and liveliness. Not much decided scent... notes of torrefy malt, singes cereals and liquorice. Slightly pungent and a lot mellow taste. Notes of smoke, fumigation and burned wood; much determined and overbearing bitter; elevated alcoholic tone. Bitter and of medium persistence final.

tenghave (402) - Taastrup, DENMARK - APR 7, 2006
Meget mørk weizenbeer. Er for mørk af en dunkelweizen til min smag. Jeg forventede en sød og rund øl, men den var for kraftig

CamdenD (1110) - Madrid, SPAIN - MAR 15, 2006
Very strange metallic nose and slick feel on the tongue. Could be the bottle? Otherwise this is a signature dunkelweizen, nice full malt throughout and dark copper color.
