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’.

Luneylane (41) - Taipei City, TAIWAN - OCT 16, 2016
a bottle from Welcome supermarket near Jing Xing road, Wen Shan district, up the road from me - drunk at home. Aroma: some grassy notes from the hops, overlaid with bread. Appearance: generous tan head, clear, dark brown body. Palate: medium-bodied, creamy, soft carbonation, sweet at the finish. Taste: watery, not over-pleasant hint of Marmite. Taste is not at all complex, but does remain in the mouth for a while. I wanted to rate this one because it is so widely available around here. Nothing special, drinkable though.

BrewWhatIWant (8) - Ontario, CANADA - OCT 15, 2016 does not count
Poured from a chilled bottle. Colour is dark brown, nearly opaque. Big, long lasting tan head. Aroma is of faint chocolate and coffee. Moderate body. Taste is sweet with slight tang on finish. Fairly malty with heavy chocolate tones. No noticeable hops. All in all, better than budweiser but not very well balanced.

caribou43 (643) - Chavannes-près-Renens, SWITZERLAND - OCT 15, 2016
I bought this beer in the drink of the world, in Bern and I drank it at home after a good lasagne. There is a nice brown color, thin foam, average carbonation. The biggest critic is this side really watery. There is one part with roasted malt, smocked, wheat, some hop but there is something missing to this beer to be great.

nephirem (270) - CROATIA - OCT 14, 2016
Bottle, 0.5l. Pours hazy muddy brown reddish body with two finger off-white head. Disappointing head retention, completely gone under a minute. Smell is a bit strange, has more ESB character rather then dunkel weizen. Body is thin with watery texture. Carbonation a bit too agressive. Overall palate is quite watery. Lightly bitter taste. Aroma is not what I’d expect out of a dunkel. Malts, yeast, slight caramel, a bit peppery. Grassy with wooden notes. Very weak wheat character. Dry finish. Overall, not sure what to think of this. A bit off-mark style wise, but not a bad beer. Not great either, tho.

Dark brown pour. Medium mouth, some creaminess. Tastes strongly of prunes and cola. Some dark malts, but little wheat. A little caramel and yeast.

Tasted from bottle. Pours a dark brown with whitish head. Faint roasted aroma. Taste is moderately to heavily sweet with no bitterness. Flavors of coffee, caramel, toffee, nutty, butterscotch. Overall a very well done dunkel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

For my taste, too smooth, without much pretension. Now that these beers you can not ask for much; but I like more the complexity and evolution, beer worked.
