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’.

On the finish a lovely dunkel...the nose is too wort-ish for my taste. Toffee, I think not coffee as others have commented. All in all a lively beer on a coolish summer night hearkening to the coming Oktoberfest beers of September... a nice gateway drug

Very dark color, hazy liquid. Looks like black coffee. Lively carbonation. Light to medium body. Watery. Not my favorite Erdinger, probably the worst one.

BOTTLE 50CL from a flea market. :) Look: hazy chestnut brown with a big beige frothy head. Aroma: slightly fermented fruit, mild caramel, toast and malt breadiness. Taste: caramel, wheat tartness, brown malts.

Scopey (5506) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2014
Bottle in Frankfurt. It pours hazy deep brown with a thick beige head. The nose is earthy, toasted brown sugar, caramel, dried fruits, wood and faint spice. The taste is toasty, caramel, raisin, sultana, date, brown sugar, wood, earth and light bitterness with a dry toasty finish. Medium body and high carbonation. Not a whole lot of depth to it, but rather drinkable and easy going.

kufdam (159) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2014
500ml bottle from Tesco in Windsor. Muddy brown murky beer. Pissy aroma. Tastes better than it smells. Couldn’t be worse right! Cocoa and banana. Smooth but a bit dull in the end.

A bit of a disappointment, nothing special. Bread aroma, little sweetness, fizzy carbonation. Boring.

Full black, medium white head. Medium body, soft carbonation. Little bit of coffee in the aroma. Malts, wheat. Medium sweet finish. Quite boring, expected more. (Konzum 0,5l bottle)

Andy_ (515) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAR 28, 2014
Tap @ Artturi.
Murky dark brown beer with little light brown head. Aroma and flavor are sweet malty, little roasted and dark fruity raisiny. Finish has a nice bite of bitterness and the aftertaste goes on for a good while with peppery spiciness, and maltiness. Palate is thin and sparkling. The dark fruity sweetness reminds me of kotikalja, not very weizenish.
