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

Bottle 500ml. Wonderful , cappuccino color foam which lasts a good while. Taste is rather disappointing, a bit watery, some hints of dark, roast bread. Nothing stays on palate, good for once.

ippopotamo36 (167) - Rome, ITALY - SEP 5, 2014
0,5 bottle purchased and consumed in Serbia. Very dark brown colour, almost black, frothy cappuccino foamy head which relatively fast lowers. Nose of roasted malts, light notes of grain. Mouth: watery overall taste, high carbonation, wheat notes and very gassy. Not my beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Senap (357) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - AUG 30, 2014
Väldigt mörk, med ett stabilt skum. Ganska mycket kola eller melass i smaken. Ganska söt.

Barreras (978) - Diamond Bar, California, USA - AUG 29, 2014
Pours a deep brown color with a sweet malt aroma. Taste is simple with a mild caramel flavor. Notes of fruit and dates in the beer with a slight bitter aftertaste. A smooth drinkable beer that was enjoyable for the style.

50cl bottle, poured into a tulip.Dark brown, almost black with a generous head. Tangy aroma. Carbonation - lively when poured, but just right. Lightly roasted malt and slight bitterness on the palate. Sweet aftertaste. To be savoured.

DomD (55) - Halifax, Nova Scotia, CANADA - AUG 28, 2014
Poured from bottle. Aroma of hay and herbs. Pours very dark brown with big head. Very mild bitter taste. Full bodied, oily texture, with lively carbonation. Overall it looks like a dark beer but tastes quite close to other weizen beers.
