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’.

500ml bottle from Tesco. Bubbly tan head disappears quickly, no lacing. Body is murky dark brown. Malty nose, bread, hint of spice. Flavour is biscuity malt, charcoal, spicy hop finish. Yeasty aftertaste. High carbonation, small gentle bubbles, mouthfeel is a bit thin. Nothing to write home about.

Carbonatação extremamente alta, destoa completamente do estilo. O corpo também é fraco. Parece uma Coca Cola.

Hippoman (397) - Durham, ENGLAND - OCT 2, 2015
Bottle from Tesco, Gilesgate, Durham. Pours very dark brown with bubbly and diminishing off-white head and lively carbonation so it looks like cola. The classic sweet wheat beer nose is present as well as hints of cocoa and coffee, making the overall aroma bitter and darkly pleasant. Chocolate and coffee again front up the flavour, with a mild lagerish hop to it. There’s a gassy and fizzy mouthfeel and a rather astringent finish. Pretty good stuff.

ForlornHope (240) - Hampshire, ENGLAND - SEP 21, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours a dark turbid brown with a large rocky head which is slightly off-white. Aroma: yeasty, bready, malty and with some fruit (fig?). Taste is slightly sweet with a gently dry and bitter finish. On the palate, more malt and dark fruits, yeast and molasses. Body is quite thin and highly carbonated. Not bad.

Avetixz (53) - Wolfsburg, GERMANY - SEP 13, 2015
Aroma of roasted malt, caramel, bread, wood and fruits. Pours opaque dark brown to black liquid with a big white head. Medium sweet taste, flavour of wheat, banana, blueberry, malt, earth. Full body with a slick texture and lively carbonation. Definitely a good, very drinkable Dunkelweizen with a nice individual fruity flavour, though a little bit subtle and watery.

Thanks for sharing the bottle Micah! Pours a hazy deep brown with a big off-white head that lasts throughout. Banana bread, clove, dark chocolate and dark fruit on the nose. Taste is fairly similar. Feels a little too sweet and heavy, but not cloying. Nice banana bread spiced finish.
