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’.

A refreshing beer, which got to be tried in an original Weizen glass. Full bodied, but yet still a refreshing enjoyment to drink in summer

Papsoe (25076) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Very dark brown with a nice, full head. Very soft mouthfeel with notes of both chocolate and licorice. Less wheaty than your typical Hefe and not overly complex considering the four different malts. 220100

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - AUG 23, 2005
I was a bit let down by this one, It was very carbonated, and flavor was a bit lacking, Mine had a bit of a white wine flavor to it. not bad by any means, and I am a weissbier fan, but this one is a bit different.

UPDATED: NOV 11, 2007 Pours out a dark brown with a lighter brown head. Wheaty malty goodness throughout, with a touch of roastyness. Slighty sours toward the end. A rather enjoyable beer.

willblake (2654) - Bel Air, Maryland, USA - AUG 16, 2005
08.16.05 500ml bottle dated 07-2005. Dark fudgie brown, clouded, under pillowy mound of tan foam. Aroma is dark pretzels, salted, with plum sauce and old leaves. There’s a subtle underlying spice that coats the air, but only in a way reminiscent of a kitchen the evening after baking. Flavors are bready, too, with a toasted crust flavor and mild salt. Underpinnings of banana, cocoa, and wine cork are nice touches. The finish is all mineral with some mint and chalk. Quite dry.

Tarnished bruised brown with amber edging. Sits almost black in most light. Emensely tall, billowing sandy colored foam grows up quickly from the pour. Gets a little too big too quick, yet it’s impressive. Takes a long time to dwindle, if it all, to one solid capping of whipped froth with a light bumpyness to its surface. Strangely laced in long skinny patches. Aroma of dry wheat and cocoa. Slightly woodish and/or dried leaves or husks and a touch of vanilla bean skins. Taste is mild, crisp, and dryish with a dark bread crust backing, a brief standing wheaty sweetness slips across its nature. Dried wheat husk, straw, and cocoa keeps some nice additions to the flavors. Not bad, was looking for a bit more out if it but what there is quite relaxing and pleasant once a few sips have set in. Feel is medium bodied and fairly set with a stern, bold give and take in its carbobation. A touch frothy and tenderly sweet with a nice drying effect throughout its character. A pretty soild Dunkel. A bit on the tame side; non banana-like but worthy with its bold body and dryness of husks and cocoa. Easily sessionable.

bridge (659) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2005
Poured very clear dark brown with ruby hues coming through with direct light. A large-ish beige head that settled down to a respectable few mms. Yeasty, hoppy and malty aromas at different times, with very weak banana notes. Got extra points for aroma because there was something there that I recognised from somewhere in the past, but just couldn’t quite put my finger on. The flavour is slightly sweet and bitter, but neither is really strong or dominant. Not quite the full-bodied beer that the commercial description expounds, but it has some good qualities. It is also quite gassy, giving me some big beer burps which isn’t really a good thing. Not bad, but half a litre is more than enough at a time for me.

Bottle. Pours a dark brown with a very thick light brown head that dissipates fairly quick. Bitter chocolatey taste. with a lingering aftertaste. Slightly yeasty flavor. Very thin body with not too much carbonation. Decent, though I prefer traditional hefe’s better.
