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’.

500ml bottle. Coppery dark brown with thin beige head that fades quickly. Roasted coffee bean, caramel, apple, roasted nuts...sweetness of vanilla/butterscotch. Sweet and bitter flavours battle it out (s/he who drinks ultimately wins). Medium-bodied, low carbonation, oily/thin, flat with a long drawn out and surprisingly complex finish.

Medium strong taste with taste of caramel, yeasts and sweet fruits. Beer is turbid from yeasts, color is from dark brown to black. Beer has very nice creamy foam. Taste is yeastsy and little sour with creamy texture.

I was expecting a lot of flavour from this dark dunkel. I was very disappointed from the first taste. It is incredibly bland and rather flavourless for a dark brew.

cherry lactic on the nose followed by lightly creamed pecan pie and sugar plums sporting little rusted razor blades coated in baby powder aftertaste. Within the long, forgotten afterwards licorice stubs, tamed by cleanliness, patiently punch out of near oblivion.

Aus der Flasche bei meinem Albaner getrunken. Durch eine leichte Röstnote werden die bananigen Hefearomen verdrängt. Gut so!!!!

Bottle in wine glass. This dunkel is a good example of German subtlety and balance when it comes to beer. Nothing off just a mild and clean brew that fits many purposes. Cheers.

Draught at Craft Beer Market, Vancouver
Dark brown color with compact off white head. Some caramel, bit overall very mild in everything, and it tastes old, or possibly it hasn’t been poured from the tap for the whole day. Very low bitterness, sweetish final, lightly soapy. Lack of character overall.

Swaroga (2024) - Gdańsk, POLAND - 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.
