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’.

Bottle. Poured tan with bubbly biege head that disappeared quickly and left hardly any lacing on my weizen glass, which usually picks up heaps of lace. Aroma dominated by caramel malt. Similar with the taste, smooth and mild with a slight coffee finish. Easy drinkin and uncomplicated for a dark beer.

Uriel (146) - San Jose, California, USA - APR 11, 2005
Dark brown, light tan head. Very malty notes with some coffee notes. Very roasted smells. Some bandaid flavor, but very smooth and mild for such a dark beer.

maupie (927) - Roosendaal, NETHERLANDS - APR 11, 2005
This beer has a black body - hue apperance and a coarse light brown scum collar. I have drunk the beer from the bottle and it had no carbonic acid. The initial flavor taste is bitter with a light bitter afther tast.

MoritzF (8562) - Bochum, GERMANY - APR 8, 2005
(bottle) Dark mahogany colour with a thick but diminishing beige head. The aroma is sweet with caramellish malt and bread wheat. So is the taste, lightly hopped with low bitterness at the finish (of course as it is a dark weizen, not a Hefeweizen). Only a decent brew and a bit disappointing for me

frankenkitty (1959) - Oak Lawn, Illinois, USA - APR 5, 2005
500ml bottle poured a coffee-brown bodied beer with a large-bubbled, "Guinness-tan" head, that dissolved like the head on a Coke. Sweet roasted malt aroma with earthy yeast. Attractive bitter malt flavor with diet cola. Rather weak, but the lively carbonation contributes to a spicy taste and mouthfeel.

KAggie97 (3529) - Ugly, Hot, and Humid Spring, Texas, USA - MAR 25, 2005
Nice malty offering here. The hops are somewhat reluctant to take credit, but you do feel their presence. A good effort from a quality brewer.

yayforbeer (753) - Orange Park, Florida, USA - MAR 18, 2005
Nice dark pour with a big creamy head that lasts. Pleasant sweet malt and mild yeast aromas. Flavor is pleasant and soft, with sweet malts, yeast, and a bit of spice. Good clean dry finish. A pretty good session beer, enjoyable and easy to drink.

This is a decent Dunkelweizen. Malty, and some wheat flavors. Finishes clean, crisp, and dry. Very Drinkable.

Pours dark brown with big frothy head. Sweet carmel aroma. Nice malty flavor. Roasted, carmel, and sweet with a dry aftertaste. Easy to drink, easy to appreciate.
