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’.

Moravius (1001) - Beijing, CHINA - MAR 13, 2016
Flasche (50 cl) von Jenny Lou’s, Peking. - Tiefes Dunkelbraun, trüb; reichlich Schaum. - Typisch obergärige Nase mit warmem dunklem Malz und schwach weiniger Süße. - Antrunk weich und mild dunkelmalzig mit sehr milden, überreif-süßen Fruchtnoten. Nur ein Hauch von krautiger Herbe, zarte Anklänge an Nelke, sehr zarte Säure. Fast brausig rezent, dünnes Mundgefühl. Im Abgang fehlt eindeutig der Hopfen, dadurch bleibt ein etwas leerer Eindruck. - Recht dünnes Dunkelweizen mit allzu schwach ausgeprägten Aromen. Enttäuschend.

Evilkniamhel (282) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 11, 2016
Bottle from Carter’s tap. Pours hazy dark brown with a big ol’ fawn head. Aromas of banana bread, cloves, malt load. Taste follows nose. A bit thin on the finish.

MarkSachon (858) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 27, 2016
12 oz bottle. Just plain average --- nothing to rave about. Should have been better for a beer from Germany.

metalspice (517) - Jevnaker, NORWAY - FEB 26, 2016
Kastanjebrunt med fint, kremete skum. Høy og karamell dominerer duften. Samme i smaken sammen med litt søt maltekstrakt mot slutten. Fin karbonisering.

Bierdimpfe (179) - Quebec, CANADA - FEB 10, 2016
Almost opaque, dark brown color with a copper hue and some powerful activity. Creamy foamy thick light brown 3 finger head lasting around 15 minutes, creating a foam island eatable with a spoon, and some good legs. Aromas and flavors of toffee, grains, fruits, corn, herbal spices. Rich sweet fruity flavors with overtones of caramel and molasses, but unfortunately quite metallic. Pleasantly earthy and toasty without the bitterness. Creamy light body with prickly carbonation. Well intensified but short finish ending with a slightly sweet toffee and spicy feel on the tongue. Overall : Good craft; The flavors are a little faint and the body surprisingly thin compared to the head, still the taste is nice, refreshing, and well intensified.

De cerveceria Erdinger "Erdinger Dunkel" cerveza alemana de 5.3% de alcohol, el estilo es una dunkel weizen es decir una cerveza de trigo negra. En apariencia muestra tonos marrón obscuro no tanto para llegar al negro pero si considerablemente atenuada, con destellos rojizos en las colindancias del vaso, una corona de espuma de color arena y brillante, muy deficiente para una cerveza de trigo y de muy pésima retención, con un cuerpo considerablemente flojo. En el olfato muestra olores ligeros de grano, notas de pan, olores florales muy discretos, con fenoles a platano moderados cuando es la principal característica de una wizen, no se detectan especias por la levadura, posiblemente cuente con adjuntos como maltas de maíz o arroz, tampoco son existentes notas de lúpulo. Ya en paladar la consistencia es demasiado ligera, se apertura un dulzor limpio a malta, algo de sabor a maíz, notas a bizcocho y una leve sequedad al final causada por cierto amargor, una cerveza nada compleja, poco carácter y algo insípida.
