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’.

Pours a somewhat cloudy brown color with a lot of head. The aroma is fairly complex, the flavor isn’t. It’s still pretty smooth. Easy to drink, but nothing very interesting here. Worth a try I guess...

Very dark brown, much darker than other dunkels I’ve had. Pours smooth in a Hefe glass with a nice large carmel head. Smells of coffee and molasis. The taste is not as strong as the aroma would have you believe. As a candle this would make a great scent, but as a beer the flavor just doesn’t quite add up.

lagermonkey (725) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - JUN 4, 2005
Hazy dark brown with a thick tan head. Not much lace. Smells of over ripe banana. Rich wheat malt. Bready. Spicy clove and pepper in the nose. Flavor mirrors the nose. Ripe banana, bready wheat malt, sweet and sticky and spicy pepper and clove flavors. a lemony finish and sticky in the mouth. Pretty good stuff if not overly complex.

SDalkoholic (2173) - Linda Vista, California, USA - JUN 4, 2005
Bottle: Pours a dark leather brown and creates a monstrous beige head. Has a small aroma divided in between caramel and malt. I wasn’t expect the flavor to be so bland, but it is and taste just like an ordinary dark American lager. Somewhat bitter while also maintaing a decent carbonation level although i won’t plan on buying this again.

oh6gdx (20869) - Vasa, FINLAND - JUN 4, 2005
Bottled. Black opaque, big beige bubbly head. Sweet caramel, yeast and wheat in aroma, very pleasant. Plummy and yeasty flavour with a bit soapish hints. Rich carbonation. Pretty watery palate.

MesandSim (7118) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 1, 2005
A Mes rate: Black and opaque with a large tan head that lasts well. Great looks all round. Standard mouthfeel, a little too much carb me-thinks. Heavy malt and yeasty flavour, not as creamy as it looks but ok. Much better than the white and I would have it again.

TheBeerOrg (2145) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUN 1, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2010 Pours dark brown with reddish hues and quickly receding tan head. Notes of spice, dark bread, rich and chewy malt, hint of banana. Starts moderately bitter, slightly sweet, and moderately acidic. Medium bodied with lush carbonation. More malt-centric than other breweries which emphasize the yeast profile.

Man their beer pour with huge head. Muddy, murky brown. Caramel, cocoa, plum and vanilla in the aroma. A bit metallic in flavor with just a ghost of the flavors the the aroma displays. Some smoke and leather comes through.A little tart and chalky in the finish. Like the Weiss, better to smell than drink.

Banana, cloves, and wheat in the aroma. Dark, cloudy brown with a large white head. Looks like I’m drinking water from the Mississippi. Flavor of gentle wheat and a very nice malt taste. The malt is similar in aroma and flavor to an abt. Somewhat sweet.
