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’.

Tranquillity (1445) - 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.

bourne (161) - Suwon, SOUTH KOREA - MAY 27, 2006
Black beer with a large, fine, dark brown, malty head. Malts of coffee and caramel. Slighty fruity although not overly sweet at all

Miksu (5027) - Jyväskylä, FINLAND - MAY 16, 2006
Bottle. Murky chestnut brown color with thick head. Aromas of raisins, dark fruits, pepper, bread and some sweetness. Heavily carbonated, lightly astringent palate. Bready flavor with raisins, plums and vinous fruits. Dark fruits and peppery spiciness in the finish. A bit unpleasant dark malt character.

This is made to offend no-one, so everything is smooth. High head and sark color leads you to expect more than it delivers. Still, far better than most lagers it competes woth. A nice little burned finish.

Pours dark with a huge creamy head and has that unmistakable banana/clovey aroma, but it fails to deliver in the flavour i was expecting more.
