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’.

A reasonably good Dunkel, I was a tad disappointed in the head which initially lasted well, but after my first mouthful fizzled away to nowt but a single-bubble thick covering, nice dark colour tho’ Slightly spicy palate with more than a hint of clean acidity on the finish, a refreshing beer. I’m not a great fan of the standard Erdinger, which I find a bit bland, and although I found this to be a bit better, you can get MUCH better for around the same amount of cash...this was from Asda,Carlisle and was about £1.70-80.

crazyvin (2026) - New York, USA - JUN 21, 2006
poured a deep brown hue with a thick white head which had great retention/lacing. Aroma was a mix of yeast malts and sweet malts mixed with a slight hop presence. Flavor was mildly sweet with a good mix of doughy malts and some bittering hops. Really smooth yet heavy on the palate.

Tranquillity (1451) - Amsterdam, NETHERLANDS - JUN 8, 2006
500ml bottle. Thick, long-lasting head with brown-white alteration. Very dark colour. In the aroma, marshmallows, roses, burned malt. Very special taste - almost like a bock. Light-bodied, the alcohol can be felt through this one. Long, soothing finish.

Ok, the standard Erdinger Weiss wasn’t impressive. However, this one didn’t disappoint and may be my favorite dunkel weizen. Poured a flat dark brown color with a huge head that provided the best possible lacing. Aroma had bananas and light spicing detectable. The flavor followed, but was slightly roasted and caramel-like (much less so than other dunkel weizens, and certainly not as "dry"). This had a sweetness that exceed that of other dunkels I’ve had. Mouthfeel was moderate and this one was pretty drinkable for a weizen. Somewhat dry finish.

Bottle sampled withStegosaurus. Pours dark with a tan head. Aroma of spices,citrus, and alcohol. Flavor is candy-like sweetness, citrus, and slight bitterness. Not bad, drinkable.
