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’.

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

Gangstergafje (252) - Capelle aan den IJssel, NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2015
What a beautiful beer. The beer has a coca cola brown appearance, dark brown. Bubbles are rising to the top happily. The beer has a nice soft layer of almond colored beer. The beer has a little metal aroma, together with a little bread. Not really bad. The smell is quite nice, not that special. The taste is nice. The beer is a little bit bready. The taste has a nice dark bitterness. There is a little alcohol smell. All in all, the beer is nice, especially on this terrace next to Berlin Hauptbahnhof. (Allermunde)

Butelka, pod mosteczkiem. aromat z gotowanymi warzywami lekkimi- pozatem duzo jakichs wymieszanych owocow ale kiepsko wyczuwalnych - banany, gruszki, jablka? przyprawowosc niska. w smaku mocno slodowy, pelny.. Sumarycznie - moze byc najwyzej, cierpien nijak nie przysparza - ale to tez nieprawda troche, bo taki chocby paulaner dunkel i fajniejszy i tanszy i latwiej dostepny a generalnie dosc podobny wszak, wnioski narzucaja sie same

Pours a deep, dark brown with a good head and minor lacing. Tastes of roasted malt sweetness and banana and spices. I also get dark fruit and some of that yeastiness that should be expected.

Nutty, sweet, caramel, roasty, slight bitterness of hops. Nice floatiness texture from yeast. Almost tastes like root beer. I like regular Erdinger Hefeweizen better though but definitely a nice dark wheat beer.
