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’.

What a surprise, I didnt give much thought to my selection whilst buying this, I will certainly buy it again, has a nice head, spicy aroma and a nice bite to the taste, a long aftertaste reminisant of malt and pepper, very nice

RichardGretton (4589) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 8, 2007
Bottle. Ruby red black beer with strong head. The aroma is lightly yeasty and the flavour is lightly yeasty, malty and dry. Overall an average yeasty beer.

omhper (22897) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 7, 2007
UPDATED: MAR 14, 2008 Bottled. Cloudy nut brown, creamy head. Fruity caramelly nose without esters. Sweet with clean mouthfeel. Notes of soap, toast and wheat crackers. Medium bodied with no bitterness. Possessing very little in terms of character, and as it is also too sweet, it is neither a beer I’d drink for enjoyment nor for refreshment.

raymondwave (931) - FINLAND - APR 4, 2007
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2007 Beautifully dark brown / black. Smooth, thick, roasted coffee, raisins and maybe a little smoky taste. I’m quite new to weizes, but this doesn’t actually taste much like a weizen. Stout comes to mind with the smoothness. Very nice carbonation.

almosi (282) - Viña del Mar, CHILE - MAR 26, 2007
(in can, 50 cl.) Has a dark brown color, almost black, with a creamy and bronzed head, that lasts long time. The smoky aroma is a little weak with something of Malt. The flavor is very good, with some touch of Malt, smoke and coffee. The body is rather average, perhaps a little watery. A very interesting and recommendable dark beer for meals.

Adenila (1560) - DENMARK - MAR 25, 2007
Nice dark appearance with a huge dense foamy baige head. Aroma is abit vague, but i sence some malty roasted characters along with a metallic scent. Flavor of roasted malts and with a smokey touch. The fruity wheat aroma comes through when the beer heats up abit. I find the carbonation to be abit over the top

bobaidan (530) - Southington, Connecticut, USA - MAR 24, 2007
Labeled as Hefe-Weizen Dark. Pours an opaque medium brown with a big head of large bubbles, that dissipates fairly quickly. Aroma is sweet malt with a metallic quality. Flavor is sweet and malty. Not much wheat character, and no bitterness to speak of. All in all pretty disappointing for one of my favorite styles.

Marsiblursi (3076) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - MAR 20, 2007
(Bottle) Pours pretty black with red hints. Malty, wheaty light roasted and light fruity aroma with hints notes of bananas and oranges. Subtle spiciness with hints of cloves. Just a touch of grass. Light flavour with notes of bananas. Some sweet grass. Maybe some chocolate notes. Well carbonated, light to medium sweet. Tiny dryish.

Bottle. Dark hazy amber with a huge tan head. Floral aroma with some hints of coffee. Light fruity flavour with a dash of bananas. Quite soft mouthfeel.
