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’.

bottle. LCBO gift pack. pours a cloudy brown-mahogany body with a gigantic frothy tan head. aroma has faint smoke, dark fruit, chocolate, and is heavily yeasty. the body is earthy and woody with soft carbonation. flavour is fairly clean and mild - there is some chocolate in there as well as toast. not a whole lot of depth and complexity. decent.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 26, 2005
Pours a huge head with a thin body at the bottom of the glass. After waiting almost 20 minutes for it to settle out and finish pouring, aromas of citrus, yogurt, berries and spice pop out. Tastes of bananas, nuts, grapes, and some peppery notes. Thick mouthfeel, though the finish isn’t as balanced as I’m used to in a dunkleweizen. A bit too nutty with a weird yogurt-like aftertase but very drinkable and nice.

piscator34 (2042) - Winnipeg, Manitoba, CANADA - OCT 24, 2005
Dark brown in colour with lots of carbonation. Aromas of raisin, spicy yeast, and a touch of roasted grain. Surprisingly astringent roasted grain flavors dominate the palate, with a bit of the standard hefeweizen banana flavors creaping in at the tinish. I thought that the roasted flavors dominated too much, and it would have been better to get some other more subtle flavors out of the darker grains.

One bottle from BOTW. Hazy nut brown, good brownish head. Sugary fruity aroma. A bit smokey. Dry, roasted, not much sweetness, long roasted malty aftertaste. Drinkable dunkelweizen.

UPDATED: JAN 6, 2007 Darkish brown color. Standard bananas and cloves nose. Some nice chocalate and biscuity notes in there too. Light creamy palate, was sweet. Had a watery finish. A subpar dunkeweizen I thought, but I’ll give it the benefit of the doubt because I had it after a spicy pumpkin ale and it was hard to taste the subtle dunkel.

Veer (362) - Landskrona, SWEDEN - OCT 13, 2005
Roasted rust tone. Yellowish fluffy head which contains the tastes very well. It’s really malty and spicy in aroma a but somehow lacks fantasticity. The taste is sourish, mild...mineral and it feels fizzy and malty. Not a favourite. Lacks an appearant wheat aroma/flavour. That’s what I feel.

JonR888710 (999) - Cochabamba, BOLIVIA - OCT 9, 2005
Body is a thin mahogany with so much carbonation it looks cola-like. Carbonation is evident in the monstrous, toasted-whitebread colored head too, which is full, big bubbled and sevral inches tall. Rich aroma of raisins, brown sugar, grapes, and a hint of licorice. Mouthfeel is watery thing, but carries a great amount of flavor. Lots of malt, wheat caramel, a bit of butterscoth, which creamily coats the tongue. Dark flavors, roasted barley malt, stays even but is not complex, does not show coffee or chocolate. Aftertaste is pitfruit and and roastedness. Nice beer, thanks Germany for another solid beer.

wunderbier (1434) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 8, 2005
Bottle, snifter. Deep brown hue with ruby edges. Large, foamy, light tan head. Raisins, over popped popcorn, flowers, clove, caramel, toffee. Very light aroma. Moderately sweet flavor. Lightly sweet, moderately acidic, lightly bitter finish. Heavy on the burnt popcorn flavor. Little bit of chocolate and roasted grains. Medium body, watery texture, fizzy carbonation. Meh. Lots of meh.

sayravai (4677) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 7, 2005
(Bottled) Very dark reddish brown color with a large, foamy head. Sweetish, ashy bubble-gum aroma with slight roasty malt hints. Initially dryish and burned, roasted-malty flavor with a sweetish-malty finish. Has quite a few dunkel properties, and hints of peppery spiciness. Medium-bodied, sweetish and quite carbonated palate. Pretty low bitterness. Not as pleasant or refreshing as their regular Weissbier. Not a bit more interesting, either.

Bottled (BB 04/2006)
Hazy nut brown, good brownish head. Sugary fruity nose (raisins, plums), aroma is fading quite quickyl, a bit smokey. Dry, roasted, not much sweetness, long roasted malty aftertaste. Drinkable dunkelweizen, but nothing really amazing.
