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’.

RIVERA_HOU (10) - Texas, USA - JUN 24, 2015
Nutty, sweet, caramel, roasty, slight bitterness of hops. Nice floatiness texture from yeast. Almost tastes like root beer. I like regular Erdinger Hefeweizen better though but definitely a nice dark wheat beer.

Holmen2 (1735) - NORWAY - JUN 20, 2015
From bottle at Krambua, Trondheim. Hazy brown. Foamy and persistent pale brown head. Fruity, but moderate aroma with nuts, dried berries and some sourness. Similar taste, with banana and noticeable malt.

leosanches (56) - - JUN 18, 2015
Cerveja tradicional de trigo escura alemã, com o clássico aroma fraco e sem elementos de destaque, com toque de casca de frutas. A cor é totalmente preta e brilhante, com espuma marrom presente, alta e visivelmente cremosa. O sabor apresenta poucas surpresas dado que a cerveja segue a lei da pureza alemã, a única diferença é o toque doce e maltado da cerveja dunkel, que tem pálato primoroso, cremoso e envolvente. A espuma acompanha no copo por toda a prova e seu sabor é agradável nos primeiros goles. Aftertaste refrescante, porém pouco duradouro, boa para dias de calor e para acompanhar carnes brancas.

jamaty (1148) - Madrid, SPAIN - JUN 17, 2015
Espuma abundante. Color ambar oscuro. Aroma neutro. Sabor muy marcadamente dulce, sobre todo al final, dejando azúcar en la punta de la lengua. Algo de café, pero lo que predomina claramente es el dulce. Por ello, aunque al principio no entra mal, pronto cansa y se convierte en una especie de jarabe. Tiene trigo, pero su sabor encaja mejor con el de una dark lager

mariuszek (491) - Gdynia, POLAND - JUN 15, 2015
Brown, hazy, beige head falling down to thin ring. Aroma of caramel and some yeasts and faint banana. Taste sweet, caramel, weizen-like but watery texture. Closer to schwarzbier.

blackisle (1139) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - JUN 10, 2015
Bottle 50cl. Cloudy dark brown, lot of small bubbles, good frothy beige head, diminishes slowly, fair lacing; sweet roasted malt aroma, brown sugar, caramel, taste medium sweet, slightly bitter, hint of acidity, light malty, wheaty, medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation, mild and light sweet aftertaste, rather watery (but not thin); though a quaffable beer not a good example of a Dunkelweizen.
