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’.

Dark brown body with a large lasting tan head. Aroma of malt and chewing gum. Malty caramel taste with some slight banana and a chalky feel.

Taste like a watery Aventinus. This is a beer that I could drink regularly...if I diodn't have access to the aforementioned Superbrew.

rickgordon (3841) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - FEB 21, 2004
UPDATED: FEB 16, 2005 Bottled. Dark mahogany with an amazingly steady head. Banana nose. Flavour is rich and when it warms up I find sweet malt, banana and toffee. Dark malt is apparent. Medium-fullbodied.

Bottle. Quite dark, large head. Semi-sweet taste, not so interesting.

Christian (10778) - Odense, DENMARK - FEB 4, 2004
Muddy dark brown body with big, frothy, off-white head. Malt dominated aroma, but no real hint of the wheat malt. Well balanced hop finish.

SpringsLicker (3046) - Tennessee, USA - FEB 1, 2004
Weizens are a style of beer that looses flavor quickly after production. Mine had hints of what it might have been fresh. The maltiness and creamy body come through with just the right sweetness to let you know there was a real good weizen in this bottle just a little while ago. Worth a re-rate if I can find it fresh.

Braudog (5485) - Hampton, Virginia, USA - JAN 25, 2004
Black with a white topping. Roasty, toasty and bitter. Very much like the classic dunkles beers of Germany, not very wheaty at all. Good schtuff.

ThomasE (5176) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 25, 2004
A fizzy dark brown beer, with fruitty taste. Not quite my beer. seems like a cross between a weissbier and an ale.

larsniclas (5348) - Billdal, SWEDEN - JAN 6, 2004
Bottled. Dark brown with a huge off-white head. Weak aroma and flavour; could be some yeast and bitter herbs.
