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’.

ordybill (489) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - APR 28, 2015
Poured from a 500 ML bottle into a pint glass. Aroma- Has a big malt, wheat and caramel smell. Appearance- Pours nearly black with a medium sized off-white head. Taste- Has a sweet malt and wheat flavor, very good. Palate- A medium to heavy bodied beer with moderate carbonation. This beer has a nice dry finish. Overall- A very good Dunkel, should be on everyone’s list to try.

Fľaša 0,5 l zo supermarketu. Tmavá farba, nahnedlá hustá pena, príjemná aróma. Stredná rezkosť, jemne nahorklá chuť, na konci pražená káva a horká čokoláda. Príjemné pitie.

laiti (6567) - Helsinki, FINLAND - APR 25, 2015
50 cl bottle @ Wasaline, BBE 07/2015. Aroma has metal, toffee, some roastiness and hints of hay. Fizzy palate. Flavour has roastiness, bready tones and coffee. Also hay and metal. Something between dunkel and dunkelhefe. Disappointing.

Fredd_an (161) - Borlänge, SWEDEN - APR 23, 2015
Vit fin stoooor skumkrona! Hel svart färg. Svag doft. Men det man känner är vete & mörk malt. Man känner att den är för kall. Men smaken är ändå tydlig vete & rostat korn. Men väldigt Lättdrucken. Så kroppen är lätt. En svart öl för sommaren. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
