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’.

Swaroga (1960) - Brussels, BELGIUM - JUL 1, 2016
Bottle 0.5l. Brown and hazy with huge and creamy head. Aroma is caramel, burned cake, flowers, honey, white cheese, sugar. Strong but soft carbonation. Watery but fluffy mouth feel. Taste is light to medium intensive. Mostly caramel cake dough dry sweetness and clove finish. Some banana is perceptible. Easy to drink and not horrible at all.

lokis333 (332) - Biržai, LITHUANIA - JUN 27, 2016
Murky deep brown color with strong brownish foam. Aromas initialy like cheap pale lager. Some very light darker malt tones and maybe lightly metallic? Plain and watery smell! Palate, light body with smooth texture and some noticable carbonation leaving watery rye bread finish. Taste is sweet and watery of rye bread, and some darker malts mixed with a lot of water. Overall, not too sure... Very watery, highly carbonated, and not amazing.

Gehbe (50) - Vilnius, LITHUANIA - JUN 23, 2016
Frothy light brown head, little lacing. Aroma: caramel, clove, cream, toffee, hints of coffee and chocolate and cured banana, some cooked bread, yeast. Taste: light sweetness an light tartness upfront and throughout, hints of roasty bitterness in aftertaste. High carbonation, creamy mouthfeel. Fairly refreshing for a dark ale, but lacks complexity.

Xstream (230) - NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2016
Behoorlijk donker bier voor een weizen dunkel. Geur is mild. De weizen invloeden met wat geroosterd mout, Caramel, wat koffie hinten en wat drop. Body is vrij dun en fris. Medium bubbelig. Finish is licht droog en ietsje kruidig met caramel en toast. Is wel fris, maar mist een beetje karakter. Is wat waterig.

NikitaDE (30) - Minsk / Schweinfurt, Bavaria, GERMANY - JUN 19, 2016
So... Very dark color, I would say dark brown, thick and long-lasting foam. Smell is mostly unorthodox, roasted barbecue and grains. The taste is a little bit sweet, a little bit roasted weizen. The palate is miserable. So the beer is easy-drinking, goes together with any food with interesting taste, a bit watery.

A dark Weissbeer. Lovely dark brown appearance with a light brown head. Medium carbonation. Aroma of spice and roasted malt. Quite a balanced taste:.Licorice, Malt, Hops. Thinnish mouthfeel.Lighter than it looks. A fair Dunkel but not terribly interesting.

MadRobin (2734) - Silver Spring, Alabama, USA - JUN 12, 2016
Poured from 500ml bottle in Berlin, Germany. Mostly clear, dark brown with a 3-finger khaki head and very good lacing. Aroma of yeast, banana, toffee, wheat and spices. Taste of wheat, caramel, banana, yeast, mild chocolate and spices. Medium/light body and low/medium carbonation. A disappointingly thin mouthfeel and a flavor that falls little short. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ozzatoadisback (56) - ITALY - JUN 6, 2016
Nut brown colour with a good healthy head which shows good persistence. Aroma has soft yeast and bready malts, caramel and a slight hint of spiciness. Taste follows the aroma, with more distinct spiciness (clove). Overall it’s obviously sweet but very much in good balance for the style. Medium body with soft crispness, slightly creamy. Not particularly interesting, but overall enjoyable and well made
