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’.

Beerenberger (1590) - Fischer, Texas, USA - NOV 12, 2012
Aroma of dark fruit and figs. Pours a dark opaque brown with a large foamy tan head and no lacing. The taste, while lightly sweet, has grainy finish and aftertaste. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Overall, ok, but nothing outstanding. Really not much taste at all except for the finish.

Nutty brown in colour and very much creamy head. Tastes of dark malt, coffee light caramel. Medium-light body, to much carbonation, watery mouthfeel. Not the best

josanguapo (836) - SPAIN - APR 6, 2016
From Hipercor. In Bavaria glass. Reviewing CSHTP6 Ch4. Very balanced, without the sweetness of others in its style. Great carbonation, with a lasting foam and not bothering the sip. High drinkability. Its only handicap is that its so balanced that its lacks something that stand out specially

TheKernOwl (108) - West Sussex, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2016
Is it a slightly spice-y Weizen, or just mildly mocca-infused seawater or drain water? Creamier (and has more body and soul than) – but not a million miles away from – Negra Modelo, por ejemplo. Bit disappointing from a German big gun, but mildly better than its standard Weissbier (sampled simultaneously).

revoltingblob (45) - Alberta, CANADA - APR 3, 2016
UPDATED: APR 3, 2016 500ml bottle. Better than the white erdinger but still pedestrian for a German beer. Not great but decent.

Bottle at home. Aroma is dark malt, caramel, light toffee, a bit nutty, hint of fruits and yeast. Flavour is moderate sweet and light bitter. Medium bodied. Drinkable, but a bit malty and dull.
