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’.

Fantastic appearance and a great taste. Perfect dunkel and probably the best kind of dark wheat beers that you will ever find on the market.

thewolf (11293) - Kolding, DENMARK - DEC 23, 2005
Good round taste that stays with a long aftertaste. Sweet and soft as most wheat beers, but with a harder edge og roasted and chocolate barley.

stouby (3841) - Holbæk, DENMARK - DEC 21, 2005
Bottle, at home (030729). Dark brown with a nice brown, large head. Aroma moderate malty, light hoppy (chocolate, licorice, roasted/burnt). Flavor moderate sweet, light to moderate bitter. Light to medium body, smooth.

Panzerfaust (568) - Hanga Roa, Easter Island, CHILE - DEC 20, 2005
Beautiful black bier with a fast-dissapearing light grey head. Aroma is malty, grainy with mild hoppy notes. Flavor is soft as the Hefe-Weizen. Lightly sweet, almost no bitter. A bit like a Sweet Stout but much softer. Lively carbonation. Medium bodied. A generic wheat bear, just pretty.

The best Erdinger. A dark brownish beer with a satisfying taste as well as aftertaste. Does not have a distinct aroma. Drink this one slowly to appreciate it.

Bilzmoude (19) - Ferndale, Michigan, USA - DEC 15, 2005
Very malty. Very light aroma. Beautiful, cloudy, dark amber color. Head deminishes quickly. Tiny bubbles. A bit of a lager aftertaste Not as full flavored as I exptected.

daboskabouter (1470) - Fergus, Ontario, CANADA - DEC 3, 2005
Dark brown clouded liquid. The nose is fruity with hints of tobacco, chocolate and molasses. The body is solid with a malty front - hints of molasses and brown sugar. It quickly thins and fades. Just a touch sweet, but not a bad dunkelweizen.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 2, 2005
Tasted 13/11/2005. 500ml bottle from Regional Wines. A deep brown, almost black, with a big, airy, tan head that disappears rather quickly. A fizzy number. Nose is banana and rich chocolate, while flavour is the same with hints of toast and weet-bix. Cinnamon and apple come through also. It’s lightweight and fizzy in the mouth, which doesn’t appeal at all. Rather disappointing, for such a famous beer.

Crockett (1017) - Southampton,Ontario, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 28, 2005
Pours deep brown with some reddy hues. Head is medium sized big bubbly foam lasting to create a little lacing. Nose is lightly toasted with yeast, wheat and a whiff of cocoa. Flavour is dull and the mouthfeel isn’t ample enough. Toasty, some peat and chocolate. Hops are lazy. Far better than the regular hefe-weiss, but nothing to either sneer or exhalt.
