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’.

Joeh (2049) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2006
Bottle from Asda, weizen glass.. I’m pretty sure I’ve had this before but never got round to rating it. Pours a murky brown. Bland aroma, a bit of toffee and not much else. Flavour is mostly sweet with a bit of sweet malt, caramel and ends up tasting rather watery and muddled. Pretty boring.

Dark brown color with thick creamy head. Had a sweet aroma with hints of caramel and chocolate. Had a nice nutty sweet finish to it. Pretty damn good.

Bottle sampled with Beerded_one. Pours dark with a large tan head. Aroma of wheat, citrus, and alcohol. Flavor is sweet, citrus, sugar, slight hops in the finish coming through. good body. Ok brew.

Zinister (1423) - Houston, Texas, USA - APR 23, 2006
Bottle. Dark and hazy with smal off-white head. Good fruit flavor with a bit of nut and malt on the back end. I was hoping for a bit more, but was still very nice.

hughie (3996) - Bedford, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2006
Dark brown with a large off-white head. Yeasty and leathery malt aroma. A bit of sweet, dark chocolate in the taste; also a curious but not unpleasant seaside saltiness. A medium bitter close. Quite liked this.

19Ei8hty (1166) - Washington, USA - APR 18, 2006
Nice looking beer - dark and hazy brown. Large cream/brown head. Light fruit and nut flavor. A little too fizzy, light on flavor too; watery. Drinkable but too little flavor, would not buy again.

nigredo (37) - Santiago de Chile, CHILE - APR 18, 2006
Fine brown color. Noble aspect in their small bubbles of bottle fermented beer. Cereal aroma, a bit sweet. Strange flavor, strong carbonatation, a bit salty and sweet. Watery texture, good body. It raises pleasing a caramel aroma.

yngwie (15390) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - APR 17, 2006
Bottled. Hazy, brown beer with a huge, diminishing white head. Sweet caramel, fruitiness and some coffee-notes on the nose. Weak flavor with some caramel. Medium body with some fizzyness. As most Erdinger beers, quite boring. (060413)
